Milk Run…NO COKE!!!


I did my first winter race!!! The Clover Irene Milk Run….YES, YES, YES! What a nice refreshing run. It was so cold, I think it was about 3degrees when the race started. Not sure what I was thinking, but I did not carry my gel with me and did not worry about it too much as the organisares normally give us coke. But this was the “milk run”…instead they gave us fruit juices.

Training for my BIG CHALLENGE!!!

They are 70 and 75 yrs respectively, remarkable...There is hope for me!!

Time is now running out, every week and training session count. I have to ensure that I stick to my objective for each session, so difficult with the cold, but I am slowly getting used to the gym again :-).

I will be focusing on speed training for the next couple of weeks and doing a couple of races. Have already entered for the Vodacom Country Challenge. This race in August will mark 1 YEAR OF RUNNING for me. So proud that I had the courage to stuck with the running, to the point that I call myself a RUNNER!

About Moerieda Mackay

Late to running and absolutely loving it! I'm married to my soulmate, Adam and blessed with 3 beautiful children. I am a Business Transformation and Innovation Professional and holds a MSc (Eng) in Industrial Engineering. Yip, a bit of a workaholic. I became addicted to ultra running whilst searching for that elusive “work-life” balance at the age of...40! I have no sporting background and with zero athletic ability running is by far the most challenging thing I've taken on but it has put me on a path of self discovery and serious transformation both physically, mentally and spiritually...and I love it!
