Any other advice for Ultra and Half Marathon runners this year?
I’m pretty excited and a little nervous about my next half marathon. In nine days time, I’ll be tackling the world’s most beautiful race – the Old Mutual Two Oceans Marathon. I’m not quite ready for a full on marathon, let alone an ultra, so 21kms will do just fine. I’m running in aid of the Put Foot Foundation, a organisation dedicated to putting @ShoesOnFeet on the youngsters in our society. Often so many children will have to walk several kilometres to get to school and many of them are doing so barefoot. With winter coming up, you can understand the need to get shoes on their little feet and so I’m very happy to be helping them out alongside Old Mutual.
The team set me a challenge of R10,000.00, which I’ve already raised. SUPER STOKED about that. In fact, I’m now sitting on R11,670.00. That’s about 58 pairs of shoes. I have 9 days to go and hopefully I’ll be able to raise a little more. If you’re keen, click here. It’s quick, easy and it really is for a good cause. R10 is good. A little bit goes a long way and I would be very grateful too!
If anyone has done the half marathon and you have some tips for me, holler. I’m no pro, so your tips/ tricks are most welcome 🙂 If you’re running, I’ll see you on the road!
On the 19th of April, I will be participating in the 2014 Old Mutual Two Oceans Marathon… The half one that is. It’s known as the world’s most beautiful race and I’m totally excited to complete my first one and get that medal. This year, I’ll be doing it for team at the Put Foot Foundation. The aim is to raise R10,000.00, which is around fifty pairs of school shoes. I’m already on R6200, which is amazing and I want to thank the people below who have donated so far. If you would like to help me out, here’s a link to the donations portal http://bit.ly/NNgVmX
