Debra, very sorry to hear about the injury, must be very frustrating, i hope you recover quickly, and am sure that if you still decide to go, you will have an amazing ( but slightly frustrating?) time, taking in the atmosphere and the social side.
Had a very enjoyable "run" at CTS Pembrokeshire today.... Big contract to big city marathons past couple of weekends, whilst I had enjoyed them, it was wonderful to be out oon spectacular coastal trails, I enjoyed deliberately going slow (not that I had any choice by the latter part) walking up lots of hills and a few downs, chatted to a couple of South Africans on route, who recognised my cap although they hadn't done Comrades themselves, and also met 3 guys at the end doing comrades this year...so a great day in perfect weather. Good luck to those doing Dorset villages marathon tomorrow, I did it last year and thought it a great event.
Will a Manchester time from 2015 count??? Based on that I smashed the qualifying time, so should be good even if they tighten the limits, so had been assuming it would get me in for next year, but if they won't accept Manchester as its now been revealed that it's short, my next best time only just meets the current limits Guess I'll just have to wait and see what happens..... And train a bit harder to get back to my 2015 fitness
Awesome day at London today, Zuluboy's definition of freeing, is my definition of perfect temperature. Loved seeing so many Comrades people either at the start or on route, including Becca, Patricia, Jackie M, Running Rodent, and Mr K immediately on crossing the finish line...... And several other people I met on route with Comrades hats or tops.... Sorry I didn't bump into Debra (hope you recover quickly) or PG3, or OldShadowFox (saw your club flag, on the opposite side of road at 13ish, but somehow failed to spot it despite looking when I passed the same spot again a bit later!).
About to sit in front of tv now to watch the highlights which I've recorded, and do some carb replacement (with a glass of wine)
