T-10 days to Comrades 2013!


We are in the final stretch…a few niggles but I am feeling on top of this world!

Still can’t believe I made it this far. My ankle seems to be taking its own sweet time to recover. Had 4 physio sessions already! Not a very reassuring position to be in. Ran this morning and I don’t have pain, it is just feeling very weird and uncomfortable…but I am so excited now, can’t stop thinking or talking about the Comrades.

My bags are now literally packed. Sorted out my fuelling and hydration “stuff”.

Definitely planning for a 12hr event!!

I have no idea how on earth I am gonna carry it all. Will have to rely on some supporters…

Completely get it now when they talk about a journey. My training started last year already in Nov/Dec with getting reading for my qualifying race. I had a few hiccups with colds and flu and now the ankle problems, but overall an awesome experience. OMG! It is only 10 days to go but I feel like I have achieve a major milestone! Not sure how I am gonna feel at the start….and at the finish :-). So many highs!!

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!
