My knee is okay and will be 98% by Sato and I was planning to run. But duty calls. I have to travel to Msa tonite and will be working through Sato and Sunday on an urgent task. Too damn bad.
Ndakaini starts late, between 10 and 11am and one can still make it with public means. Ogutu can Hook up with GK or with kina Sikuku (if they can get a car) and go together.
Since my good employer has spared me the torture of the grueling hills, I can enjoy the luxury of making some predictions:
Kariuki does 10K in 1:15
God probably exists and in his peerless wisdom has saved me from the grim prospect of grinding my bad knee to pulp on the Ndakaini hellish hills in my endeavour to do a sub 2 hr Ndakaini half marathon. Through his omnipotent ways, he has quickly nudged my employer to stand in my way to self destruction because he knows I lack the mettle to hold myself back from a race even when my knee has gone to hell.
If I could hobble to Ndakaini with my camera, I would probably stand at the top of the third hill at about the 17th Km with the following poster held high up:
Good luck guys and sms me your times after the race. Msikuwe last this time. You can post your detailed race report on my blog if you need a space.
