My morning

What did I do this Sunday morning?

Completely out of my comfort zone and something I don’t normally do, this morning I was coaxed into doing the Orlando Half Marathon, 21km, 10km, 5km.

I said yes casue I though I’d do the 5km. But this runner person that I was with tricked me into the 10km *sneaky & tricky*

Finally! I finished it, made it to the end!! Thanks to my trainer, motivator, inspiring, encouraging, friend spurring me on; I made it. I was exhausted, my face was lobster red. I know tomorrow some places and body parts are going to be stiff, I told her she better not phone me….there will be some name calling involved.

Already she’s coaxed me into another one on 13 January 2013 *scared*

  1. This is great. You were tricked into doing 10km ha ha ha ha. You are brave and fit. What a great way to start the day. I do a lot of the PTA ones because they are usually very early (6 to 7am) and on Saturdays.

    Didn’t know about this one. Might have been tempted to take part in it. I love love doing them. I think I did about 20 races (or walks rather) in 2012 – 5km, 8km and 10km. My favourite distance is 8km, but there are not too many of them.

    • Oh Pretoria? So do you do any races here in Jozi? This is new to me, it’s time for a ‘new life’ = exercising and dieting or eating properly for 2013. have to do something quickly and desperately looking like grey hippo from hippo ad on TV

      • Maybe we should do some together in 2013… I just need to eat well, I think on the exercise front, I am a bit (very tiny bit) good. Even if not Pretoria, there are quite a few in Jozi too. Though most of the Jozi ones I do, are mid year. We can make an exception for us to do one together earlier in the year 🙂

    • That’s the one. But I will only do the 5km not ready for the bigger one. One step at a time right. One race at a time. Will you lend me one of your littlle ‘hip bags’ please? Or help me tell me where can I buy one? 😉
