So like, from my contextual perspective the Comrades Marathon is the ultimate ‘marathon of marathons’. If you grew up in South Africa, I would call you a liar if you denied ever hearing about the Comrades Marathon (and Bruce Fordyce).
Be that as it may, as undeniably prestigious (and popular) as the Comrades Marathon is, it’s a 89km (translates to a whole day) marathon. A whole flippin day of just running! Seriously…. Oh goodness no…. I can just just barely manage 2 hours of running. Not for a damn second did I think I could manage 10 hours – never-mind the commitment and training beforehand to actually finish!
So as devastated (I’m not kidding – that was BAD), as I was when I heard that the Two Oceans half marathon in South Africa was cancelled due to COVID19, so elated I was when I heard that the king of Marathons in South Africa (Comrades) decided to have a 21km virtual marathon option (as opposed to their standard exclusive 89km 😖 😰 event)!!!!!!!!!
Hip hip hurrah hooray. Whoop whoop 🙌🏾💃🏽💃🏽💥👏🏾🙌🏾🤸🏾♀️🌸💥💥💥💥💥💥💥
Entered!!! I’ve entered a Comrades event! 🙌🏾I almost can’t believe it! As heartbroken 💔 as I was when I heard Oceans was cancelled, so exited I am about this event! Loving the universe. Simply loving it. Sending loving vibes to all. Namaste 🙏🏾🕉❤️❤️❤️❤️
