I did it, I ran my first marathon, a whole FORTY TWO KM’s, yup 42.2km’s. Before I tell you about the race, my first take away from my experience was to be thankful for the opportunity to run this race in Cape Town, the other thing that stood out when I reflected on the experience was that YOU CAN achieve what YOU set out to do. You have to work and work hard for what you want to achieve, but remember, nothing great comes from little effort. I believe that we all are capable, not of running a 42,2km maybe, […]

Here was an emotional point, I recalled making my resolution to run the OMTOM as my first half marathon, I flew to Cape Town and here I was at the start line. It was a feeling of accomplishment before I started, mostly because I worked hard at what I wanted and to that point I kept my promise to myself.
I finally managed to settle on a new pair of running shoes. It took me almost 3 months to settle on this pair and it was certainly worth the wait. We all have such unique feet and different running requirements that I don’t think that there is one best running shoe, but what I will try to do today is help you select a pair of running shoes that is suitable for YOUR feet.
