My running career: I started running short distances in 2004. When I got chosen for the 2006 Fencing World Championships, I had to follow the national training programme, which included running, I only did 8km time trials and club runs, after that I kept on running and running longer distances – first 21km race was Loskop in 2007, first 32km Potties 5-in-1, my first marathon was the Wally, Loskop and Longtom was my first ultras, in 2009 I ran my first Comrades. Since then I finished 5x Comrades marathons, 3x Longtom ultras, 8x Loskop ultras and 6x Om die Dam ultras. I ran for Potties Athletics Club from 2004 – 2012, I joined Alpha Centurion in 2013 – marvellous club.
My running goals for 2019: Get back to enjoy running. This year I’m going to run as much as possible, Hippo runs, time trials, club runs and 21km races, a few off road runs, cross country and maybe 1 or 2 marathons. My longest race will be Loskop’s 50km.
