I started running last year March. I’d always find I’m a slower runner than most but that’s ok. My dad would always tell me in Swahili Polepole which means slowly, that’s why I go at my own pace.
Ever since then I’m thoroughly enjoying my running. I did the Two Oceans Half Marathon for the first time and have caught the running bug. So much so, that I have decided to do the comrades in 2020.
My reason for joining CMIYC is that I feel it’s great for women to run together and create safety in numbers. My aim is to help inspire women to run and realize their goals. That’s what I would like to achieve being a leader and also shed a few pounds along the way.
