I'm signing up for the Kobe in November.

First time doing an overseas marathon.

Any tips on jetlag/preparation/kit?

Anyone ran Kobe before? What is it like?

I wouldn't imagine much jetlag flying from Australia to Japan, as the timezones are similar.

No running tips but eat KOBE beef! Unbelievable+++++!  Osaka aquarium is not far via the fast train and is even more amazing. Two whale shark.

The trees there will be amazing at that time. I ran 10-20km every morning for in every place we stayed over a 10 days in Spring last year. Food was great. Trains are on time to the second. We used Airbnb for accommodation which worked well all over Japan.

I've had some tendonitis on my ankles for the past few months.

Changed up my training and putting swims and bike rides in, backing off on the KMs.

Although I have paid my entrance fee, I'm not sure I can do the 42 just yet.

I am holding accommodation at the ready and will book flights nearer the time.

I am going to enter the Melbourne half marathon first and see how I feel afterwards.

48 days to prepare but a slow 10k this weekend tells me I can finish a half, just need to be able to clock up KMs without injury for the full.
