Last road races for a while

It’s Friday!!! This weekend I’m running two races; the 25km Jackie Mekler on Saturday and the Colgate 15km on Sunday. Both will be slow training runs with distance the main focus. I need some longer back to back runs and doing that in races make it a lot easier.

This will be my last two road races for a while (about 2.5 months). From next week my races will change from this…


to this...



I’m really excited about the trail races coming up and just as excited to do some training on the trails. Here in Johannesburg the winter is starting and the winter is dry. That means winter time is great trail time. But first I need to get through the two races ahead. Will keep you posted!

Have a wonderful weekend everyone and good luck to all of you running races. A special good luck to Anne (Asthma and the Gift of Running)  for her first race!

You have been on a roll with lots of races. Enjoy your last effort for a while. I love the look of that trail--should be a great break for you.

Trail races in SA must be awesome! Are you excited for the World Cup? Or are you more rugby or what?

Good luck in your races. Will love hearing more about the trail races as winter comes. That is so strange writing that.
