Reality Check

With my Comrades entry secured and accommodation for race weekend booked, reality is slowly starting to set in... Phew, 89 km is quite far...! And training is quite intense - already... But, along with this reality check came the certainty that this is one challenge that I have to complete. I want to. I want to see if I am up to it. And most of all: I want to prove to myself that I can do anything I put my mind to through hard word and dedication.

So with that thought in the back of my mind, training is continuing and progress is being made slowly but surely. Most training runs still take place in a game farm outside of town; with every single sunrise and sunset regarded as a blessing to behold.

With five of my eight steps to Comrades already in the bag, the true test now awaits: Sticking to the training plan and successfully completing a qualifying race. But, for now, I'll just focus on tomorrow's training. Even an epic Comrades journey like this one starts with small, baby steps!
