Experienced the true meaning of marathon racing this past weekend, taking part in the first round of the WP Marathon series in Tulbagh!
It was a long, dusty and rocky day with temperatures hitting well over 30’C even at 6.30am… The route covered 72km with only 1200m of elevation which in my mind didn’t look too demanding… but I was very wrong… I was feeling quite good and content with myself up until half way where the heat started getting to me and started losing momentum and eventually power, which made the last 15km the toughest 15km I’ve ever had to deal with, something I’ll never forget. 132 more words
