Well done Sue. Fantastic that you are going to take part. Think there will be hills in both the up & down training plans  The hills are all flat if you look down and tell yourself they are flat...seems to work for me. Suspect you could give a lot of us advice on how to complete a double marathon in 11 hours

I know Stephen, it was embarrassing to say 'never again & I mean it' to my other half at the finish line and then can't wait  to be back at the start next year. Note to self - keep one's gob shut at the finish line

Hi Redpanda. How about finding someone to run with or joining the local running club. If it helps, I try to enter a 5km to marathon (mostly 10kms & half-marathon) every week. That keeps you in the mood & training runs during the week have a different purpose  You get to chat with some great people too...on the start line. Do you remember when you thought a marathon would be impossible for you. Well you did that....lesson over

Hi Redpanda. There are water & Powerade stalls every few kms, people feeding you various goodies all the way along the course, you can stop for a massage, tape up your legs and generally anything else you need to get you around...and you will not believe how friendly & encouraging the other runners are. Think you might be getting tempted  ....then you will get hooked, like the rest of us!

Hi Fizziofinn. Yes...I'm here to help the UK Comrades runners & lobby for anything that makes your life more straightforward for the run. We have ambassadors throughout the world & want to encourage more people to take part

Hi Marty74 - anyone who has made it up that last hill in the Two Oceans will get around the Comrades. Hats off to you

Cannot believe what a fantastic buzz there is already for next year
