Anyway, I started the race 16mins late because honestly that is how long it took for the people at the very end of the line (me included) to start moving after the shot had gone off. I was determined to join some friends who were further up, but that ended up not happening. By some stroke of luck, while running on Grayston, I was joined by a young lady who went to the same high school as me. What a coincidence! She was so much fun to run with and I would not have performed as I did without her.

|can you spot me?|
|getting my walk on|
I went to the race with my best friend, who unfortunately did not register as stated before. While I was out sweating and killing my lungs, my best friend was sight seeing in the Sandton City Motor Show. Sigh! Some people and cars...
|I could not believe that this is a BMW lol|
Unfortunately I could not take the camera into the run with me, so I was not able to take the street shots I thought I would take before. Honestly, I romanticised the whole race. Being there, running in the middle of Alex was hectic! I was tired, the sun was scorching and it was just all human body running towards the finish line. I finished the race in 1h36mins and I am proud of myself. I have achieved GREATNESS!
Exhausted and sore...
