Don’t Dream It; Train It!


creating-yourself-picture-quoteThis is a very exciting time in my life. I feel blessed with health and strenght to do what makes me happy. No doubt the next few months ask for HARD work, COMMITMENT; SACRAFICES will have to be made. There is no easy way around training for Comrades. Guess what…I don’t need “easy” anymore. Just need “possible”, the rest is up to me. It is all part of my journey…it is what makes My Million Miles!

make-the-moment-perfect-picture-quote93 days to Comrades!

My training is on track. Damn, I never felt as confident in myself as right now!! January (195km) and February (165km) training went amazingly well – now for the real hard work in  March and April; 2 standard marathons (Rome and Paris Marathons) and an ultra marathon (still to decide which one). What more can I ask for? I means seriously…an opportunity to run in Rome and Paris? Just thinking about how far I have come gives me goose bumps; thinking about where I want to be keeps me going. I feel like Martin Luther King “I have a dream” 🙂



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!

  1. Wow…good on you…you have a new fan, besides Adam 🙂 From the little I have read since the comment you left on my Paris Marathon post, i know that you will make it to Comrades. Good luck with finding the SA Vest and with the rest of your endeavours.
    BTW, if you have any trouble finding a vest, you are welcome to borrow mine. It’s a medium.
