That is dad in the 1985 Comrades Marathon. He loved the cake but then didn’t want to cut it. Eventually he gave in and did the honors.
If you might wonder about the name “Pille” on the cake...that is a nickname that he has had for as long as he knows. “pille” is the Afrikaans (our home language) for pills. So he’s been Pille (Pills) since he said at school he is going to study medicine.
Other news is that work is very busy with me moving to a new project at a different customer next week. Handover and finishing off some tasks are keeping me busy, but I’m excited about the change and looking forward to a new challenge.
Running is going well and my training for Comrades is still on track. I’m running a marathon this Sunday and this will be my first road marathon in a long time. I’m treating this as my long run for the week so the marathon will be a LSD run at the end of my normal 6 day training week. I’m getting used to the long runs on the road but I miss the trails already. I’m running the Pick ‘n Pay Marathon. This was my 1st marathon in 1985 so I always enjoy going back to run it.
Have a wonderful day and rest of the week everyone!
