Personal Message:

My first attempt at Comrades was mediocre by my own expectation. In a conversation with my dad earlier that morning I told him that everything I had done for the last 2.5 years prepared me to finish. This was not the case - I only made it halfway up. Nothing was more demanding and exhausting than the desire to keep running further and further when everything within me was crying out for relief. I pushed but failure was inevitable. John Maxwell writes “Fail early, fail often but always fail forward”. In other words we should see our failure as an opportunity to project us forward instead of it just being an event that displays our mediocrity. My father reminded me in his own way that the end of one race is just the beginning of another. There’s nothing wrong with going halfway but building a house at the point of failure is not in our God given DNA. My second attempt was more successful. This year I’ve decided to run for charity.Please make a contribution of any amount and help me raise funds for CHOC.
