I am a doctor that is currently working in Paarl Mediclinic Emergency room. I started running as a student for a study break and after running my first 10km race the running-bug bit me. I love the feeling of the open road and being outdoors in nature. From a short run to a 21km, a road run to a trail run, running with friends, my dogs or alone… anything outdoors with fresh air gets me going! I am a very social person and love exploring new places. I love to take on new challenges/setting new goals for myself.
I have completed a few 21km races. I also started swimming and cycling for fun and started doing triathlons. I completed a few Ironman 70.3 ‘s, Cape Town Argus, the Transbaviaans Mountianbike race, the Discovery Duathlone and the Midmar Mile.
My dream is to one day complete the comrades or even just an ultra run!
For me running is a sport where it is you against yourself and you can see and feel the difference after each run, how you are getting stronger and fitter! It is a personal challenge but at the same time also very social and fun when training and running with friends or doing races.
I am excited to be a part of CMIYC and join a community of woman empowering themselves and others, doing what they love and having fun at the same time! Looking forward to meeting all of you!
