Biggest challenge for me EVER

Sponsored Links
I have entered for the NIKE SOWETO MARATHON on 02.11.2014 for the 21 km run.

Have only run 5km and a few 10km runs. This will be my first 21km run.

Difficult to train during the week so I train on a Saturday morning, running the Rietvlei Park 5km run.

To get myself fit for the 21km run I am now doing the 5km run twice on a Saturday.

Did my first this morning and felt great.

Finished the first run in 41 minutes.

Straight afterwards did the second run and honestly surprised myself, did it in 44 minutes.


Going to be a tough run for me BUT I KNOW I CAN DO IT !!!!

Of course you can do it! We're all cheering you on, you know that!

I think you're amazing to take up this sport as an older entrant, Ant, and I'm sending my very best prayers that you do well: you deserve it.
