T-1 to Comrades!


The wait is over. Tomorrow I get to experience the ‘Ultimate Human Race’. The worlds greatest ultra marathon!

It is not going to be easy. My marathon qualifying times made sure of that! :-). In hindsight probably a good thing. Kept me motivated and made sure I worked hard and stay focused on the goal. My goal is to finish the race. I am ULTRA confident that the hundreds of kilometers and hours on the road will see me through.

If everything goes according to plan I should finish in about 11hrs 30mins…


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!
