Six days to the 7th of October. What is the relevance of this statement you might ask? Well the second edition of the hugely successful event, #WeRunJozi by Nike, is happening. In March, thousands of Jozi residents took back the streets by running through the Joburg CBD. This time an estimated 20 000 runners will be running through the streets of Sandton and Alexandra in yet another 10km run.
My training is going swimmingly well. I’ve been participating in the #mediaruns, which is a great way to get social, get training and get fit. I’ve done two such events; one in Rosebank and one in Braamfontein and both were good. I’ve also been running a lot at gym. Yesterday I did a 10km on the treadmill, which is super boring, but I managed it and so I’m feeling quite good about the race on Sunday.
Have you registered? If so, how’s your training going? Come and run with us in Rosebank on Wednesday evening. We’re meeting at The Zone at 17:30. It’s fun, festive and you’ll be getting in some mileage while you’re at it. Plus, I know a few people feel like they deserve a good, hearty meal and a cocktail after their runs, so you can hang around The Zone afterwards.
Just as a side note, I was in Prague recently for a vacation and to see Coldplay (amazeballs I tell you). I walked into the Nike store in Prague and I saw the WeRunPrague picture on one of their walls. Their run took place almost a month ago, so I felt like I needed to take a picture and share it with our aspiring and excited Jozi runners. Check it out below:
