My running career: I originally started running about 7 years ago, doing short distances up to 10km, 3 years or so after socially running with friends every weekend (that was more of a catch up chat session), I started pushing my limits on the 21km and exploring ways to better myself, it was at that stage that the "barefoot running shoes" came in to trend and I was one of the runners that definitely felt the "free" light feeling of running with a 1mm sole that broke my PB's every weekend, and with such a awesome feeling I went to go do the Deloite 21km the one morning and it was that morning only that we decided that we were just going to do the 42km instead, after trying to run the 42km with a 21 km pace, walking in between sections... I ended up damaging the cartilage in my knees and barely walking the last 6km of the Deloitte (Managed to miss qualifying by 2min). I was out for 6 months and started mountain biking to regain strength in my knees, only returning to the track a year later stronger than ever, but also with allot more respect to an "un-natural" running surface. Determined to do the Two oceans Ultra I joined my first running club (awesome club) and from there on the Alpha's have given me more advise and support than anyone can ask for, and with a great training program I managed to do a couple of marathons, ultras and Comrades. 

My running goals for 2019:

Back to back comrades and golden gate challenge. 

Eugene Viviers - Vice Chairman

passed on. Now it is Karli the poodle.

and be kind to people and animals. Make a positive contribution, what can I

Linda Wood - Treasurer

Family: Married to Craig - an awesome husband and super partner for all adventures that life brings our way .  2018 will see us celebrating 20 years of married life. Our four-legged family members consists of two crazy boxers named Brinjal and Shadow and a not-so-sociable cat called Squeekles.

 

Interests: Mountain Biking, Hiking, Skiing, Triathlons, Camping, Reading, Entertaining, Cooking and Baking ... oh and Running

Life philosophy: Laugh lots and laugh often.   #Justdoit - never think or say “I  can’t”  -JUST DO IT 👍   Life is more than just about you - give back whenever and wherever you can. 

Favourite holiday destination: Every holiday I go on, becomes the new favourite destination.  Life is too short to visit the same destination over and over again. So I really do not have a favourite destination – each adventure becomes the new favourite.

Favourite Food.  Chocolate .. yes, that is food.  A lekker braai with a good glass of red wine. Brinjals yum yum 

Favourite Movies. When a man loves a women. Four weddings and a funeral 

 

My running career: I started out doing some morning runs with a bunch of friends a few years ago. Slowly but surely a weekly 5km run, became a 10km run and then somehow the 2 Oceans 21kay snuck its way into my diary.  For a few years, the 21kays was far enough for me.  Then, 3 years ago, a friend said that he was looking at doing the New York Marathon as this was on his bucket list.  And so the bunch of friends all entered for our first marathon.  What an experience! And so the running bug bit. Since New York, Craig and I have done the Berlin Marathon, Chicago Marathon and the Cape Town Marathon.  The long term goal is to do the 6 world majors.  Sadly, we have hit a wall for next year, as we were not lucky enough to get lottery tickets for any of the 3 remaining on our list.  We do however have our eyes on the Disney Marathon as the medal is really big, bright and colourful and the 4 days of running sounds awesome.  So it seems the running career will continue for the foreseeable future.
