The Vodacom Country Challenge


Yes. What a challenge – I am back on track. Not exactly where I want to be but happy with the way the training is going so far. I have skipped so many training runs. Blame it on the cold weather. My morning runs seemed to have become something of a past life! HELP!

Well done! 2h37mins....

The Vodacom race was challenging, but I was on home ground and really confident and have been looking forward to this race for months! I did my first 5k here a year ago and look at me now, still thriving with passion. I cannot believe I have persist…even training for fo a 50k ultra-marathon race. I am so proud of myself. Just need to stay focus now – I am starting to get a bit intimidated by the distance from my next big race (I have not trained as hard as I should have!). I completely get it now when people say, running a 50k is not hard, but training for a 50k is….

My time for the vodacom was 2:37 – would have wanted to do a PB, but the HILLS of Midrand did not want that for me :-). Next time. I did the first 5km in 36:36, which I am extremely happy as the first stretch was not too easy.

All in all…Well done!

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!
