Chairman 

My Running Career:

II’ve been running since 2016, completed my first Marathon in 2017 and finished my first Comrades in 2019.  My love for running and our club is growing every year!

My Running Goals for 2022:

I have 3 very specific goals for 2022:

· Break 4 hours on a marathon;

· Complete the Half Ironman in      June 2022 (hopefully under 7  hours);  and

· Finish my back-to-back Comrades.  (Fingers crossed Covid does not interfere again…)

Anything more than that is a blessing.  😊

My Running Career:

I started long distance road running in July 2016 and completed my first half marathon in September 2016 (SABS). Thereafter my first marathon in January 2017 (Ottosdal). First Ultra Marathon March 2017 (Om die Dam) and then my first Comrades June 2017.  To date I have completed 3 Comrades up till 2019.

2020 dealt us all a blow proving to have been an exceedingly difficult year for races, although we had some special moments with garden runs. 

 

My running goals for 2022: 

Not sure what 2022 has in store  for us but I’m ready for it! 

I will keep on loving this sport, motivating people to start, and making more friends.

My Running Career:

As an MTB’er, I supported my friend with his 2018 Comrades and the running bug bit.

I started training and completed my first Marathon in 2018, the Jacaranda Marathon. I went on to complete my first Ultra,  Two Oceans and then completed my first Comrades in 2019. Later that year I joined the Skillies.

 

My running goals for 2022: 

To complete my back to back Comrades.

My Running Career:

I started running in 2014 with the intention to only run 5km (and to lose weight). With a very encouraging club manager and someone that believed in me I ran my first marathon in 2015 and never looked back. I've since done a few marathons and ultras but my first love and favourite is still the half marathon. I'm now addicted to running and the fellowship that comes with it. I also love trail running!

 

My Running Goals for 2022

I'm struggling with the longer distances (42,2km and 50km). It's a mind thing and I need to train my mind and get over my 'fear for open roads' (I made this up - I'm sure there's no such thing). I'm hoping to overcome this and sort of enjoy these distances too!
