My Bucket List of Half Marathons for 2023

To date, I’ve run nine Half Marathons with my ninth resulting in a shocking Personal Worst (PW) time in Mogoditshane.

What ‘Bling’ Did I EARN in 2022? | Part 2

I am so happy to be sharing all the bling I earned in 2022! In 2020, I only ran three races before the pandemic hit and the rest of the year was filled with virtual challenges; in 2021, Botswana’s race calendar was empty, and I only participated in two virtual challenges.

On Sunday 27 November 2022, I participated in the UB Marathon (10K race) in celebration of the University of Botswana’s 40th Anniversary.

Goals

How I Plan to End 2022 with A Bang!

When I look at them now, I don’t think they were overly ambitious, in fact, unlike previous years, they were quite achievable. But this year has just felt off for me, fitness-wise. Admittedly, I’ve… Continue reading How I Plan to End 2022 with A Bang!
