See the red socks? They were inspired by 4 times Comrades winner Alan Robb, who always runs in red socks.
Alan is one of South Africa’s running legends. He has the most Comrades gold medals of all runners (12) which means he finished in the top ten 12 times, including 4 wins. Just as famous as Alan are his legendary red socks. I ran with red socks for many years in the 1980’s, inspired by Alan Robb.
Now for the best part…!!!
If you’ve been reading my blog for a while you will know all about Staci (Sandal Girl).
Guess who is Staci’s dad…? Yes, none other than Alan Robb! How cool is that! Read her post here to see some photos of Staci with Alan at this year’s Comrades Marathon expo.
