|Daveyton Stop Abuse 10 km - 21 Dec (CGA)
|Does anyone know if this race is still being held? I can't find a flyer anywhere!
Will be trying to contact the organiser this week also.
|Orlando Half Marathon & 10 km - 14 Dec (CGA)
|Parking was easy to get into but it was quite a long walk to the entries. I hadn't pre-entered, which was a mistake! There was a huge queue for race day entries and only one table taking them, so it was a little chaotic. The lady who took my money wanted to give me a temp licence as my race number - she seemed a little confused by these hoards of impatient runners!
However, the race itself was great. It is a relatively tough route - particular that one monster hill that goes on for about 1.3k ...

|My dokter het gesê as ek 'n lang gesonde lewe wil hê moet ek drank uitsny.
Ek het nou al amper 3 plakboeke, vol prentjies van drank.
As jy ook wil drank uitsny, die pamflette van Makro het lekker baie prente van alle soorte en geure!

|RIP Louise Buys (Nortman)
|If anyone knew Louise Buys (ex Nortman) who ran for Nedbank in Pretoria in many years, she sadly passed away yesterday at the age of just 53.
She was diagnosed with Breast cancer in 2012 and later brain cancer during 2013. She was forced to stop work due to her illness earlier this year.
Although I didn't know Louise well, she worked for the CSIR for 27 years and I often teased her about running for Nedbank when we had a perfectly good running club attached to the CSIR - especially when I ...
|Longtom Marathon is back - 2015
|I see LongTom is in the race calendar book! Exciting!
|Soul City Half Marathon & 10 km - 7 Dec (CGA)
|There is really nothing wrong with this race. We arrived just after 06h00 and found parking a breeze, pre-entry collection a breeze and despite a much bigger field than last year, marshalling and water points were first class, although the water could have been colder.
But .... and this is a big but ... please, please, please start this race at 06h00. A 07h00 start is just too late in mid-summer and for us slower guys it was nudging up towards 30 Celsius by the time we finished.
I've never ...
|I eventually did my first Parkrun this morning at the Voortrekker Monument in Pretoria.
I would'nt have been able to run today as my son and I were going to a Mountain bike birthday party @ Groenkloof Nature reserve - but my son fell ill yesterday and with all the anticipation and then the let down (for both my son and I), I went to my nearest Parkrun venue to let off some steam.
When I arrived - just five minutes before the start, there were already quite a healthy crowd of runners/walker ...
|Who's been training
|Wow - really humid this morning. Felt like I was running in KZN. Very pleased that 5km was all that was planned today, done at the December pace - 32:20.
