Its that time of the year again already! I wanted to take the opportunity to say thankyou to all of the Runlab Coaches for delivering professional and personal quality run sets throughout the year. Taking a real interest and concern in your running and training is a part of what makes them special and its evident to me by what I here and see in you as runners. So thankyou team Cheryl, Justin, Adam, Renae, Hailey, Mitch, Mike, Erika, Anna, Phoebe, Scotty, Lucas, Peter and Luca who have all been involved in our 2017 sessions. I look forward to working alongside you next year with a few more Coaches hopefully too.
2017 for myself running wise was underlined by the word ULTRA! This was both on Road and Trail where I competed in many iconic events including the GNW100 and Comrades marathons. My GOALS for this year was 10 wins at large events. I got 8, so that’s an 8/10 for me. I have many lasting memories from a solid year of racing, training and coaching. Standouts include the warm-up hall for the Elite runners 4:30am race morning in Durban when one of the teams entered in full war cry together with attire (the internationals including me were momentarily taken aback – but we were in fact all competing against each other – its big prestige and money and the pressure is on for all).
So RUNNERS its up to you now. Personally thankyou so much. I have shared a special moment with so many of you that I regularly Coach and for those that I don’t see often, the care and effort to ensure you get a great set is just as important to me. It’s December of course and 2018 is FAST approaching. Many of you like me have events planned and booked already. It’s a fantastic time to train and I encourage you, whilst maybe requiring a break form the normal routine and structure of training to put in the solid work right now. Summer Sessions, Runcamp18 and term 1 are just around the corner. Achieveyourimpossible!
