Hello all. I've been lurking a bit (somehow can't stay away....). Yes, I'll be stalking on the day, up at 4:30am, wearing my hat . Sorry to hear about your hip Debra, that really sucks. Congratulations on the book prize though - well deserved!
A word about insurance policies - check with your insurance company whether you're covered for Comrades. Some will include marathons in their policy, (but it's still worth checking even that - I had a very protracted conversation once about what 'marathon running but not racing' meant). However, very few policies will cover races of over 'normal' marathon distance, like Comrades, as standard. You might either have to pay extra, or go to a specialist insurer, like Dogtag, which does extreme sports cover. Always worth checking, you don't want to find out the hard way that your policy isn't valid.
