Speaking of Comrades, I have generally had very little interest in "ultras." Max's feats amaze me, but I know how I feel after a marathon, thank you very much, and 100 or so miles on a bike is plenty. But I do feel an odd attraction to the Comrades Marathon. Its history, the idea behind it . . . There's more to it than just the miles. Maybe someday. Max, is it uphill or downhill this year?
