Oops - just entered without. Will see if I can add it - I knew I should have done that.
Yes, this will be my first Comrades - I entered for 2014 then tore my posterior tibial tendon in a cycling accident and couldn't do it. Really thought I was going to be unable to again due to the broken ankle, but I ran 17 miles on Sunday then 5.5 each way to & from work over Crystal Palace hill on Monday, so I think I can get trained okay. I have a place for London but in case something goes wrong (e.g. I get flu) and I can't run it, I've entered for the Dymchurch Marathon end of January to make sure I'm qualified.
I've run 50-milers in the UK previously, so the distance per se for Comrades should be okay, but I'm not sure how well I'll cope with being on road for 56 miles, and I'm a bit worried about the temperatures. Oh well!
