Comrades 2011

Zimbabwean Stephen Muzhingi wins the 89,9km Comrades marathon for the third year running.The Comrades Marathon took place from Durban to Pietermaritzburg this year and it draws competitors from all over the world ranging from top elite athletes to plodders that barely make the 12 hour cutoff time.
Russian twins Elena and Olesya Nurgalieva pose after Elena took first place and Olesya took second.
Everytime, I cover the Comrades or even watch it on TV, I get the urge to run it, there is something about the Comrades that is bigger than just a road running race, I have always said that I want to run it at least once.
I suppose I should get training....
