Two Very Special People

Anneri troue 035


Today I dedicate my post to my wonderful parents. They celebrated their 57th anniversary on 1 May. They are my heroes and the two most special people in the world. Congratulations on 57 wonderful years. Thank you for the wonderful example you set to all of us. Lots and lots of love to both of you!


I’m running a 10km club run with breakfast on Saturday and the Randburg Harriers Half Marathon on Sunday.


Have a super weekend everyone!
