I started running after the birth of my son almost five years ago. As many moms will know, we get very little “alone” time, so running is my escape and my “me” time.
I set a goal of running a marathon in the year I turned 40 and I was thrilled to complete my first – Cape Town Marathon – last year. And this year I tackled the Two Oceans Ultra. It was the most amazing experience. Tough, but worth it.
I made so many friends along the way (almost 7 hours is a long time to be on the road – LOL!). What’s next? I am hoping to give Comrades 2018 a bash.
Otherwise, I’m a mom of two, married to a two-times Comrades finisher. I work in PR and communication and can’t function without a decent cup of coffee.
I like to run early in the morning – there’s no better way to get the day started.
