I am Kelly and welcome to the “writings of this rambling mind of mine!”
The primary purpose of this blog is to keep me honest, give me responsibility and accountability, to post at least once a week the story of my journey to the Two Oceans Half Marathon (15.4.2017)
To fully understand the magnitude of this, you need to know that I am 44 year old suburban Momma considered morbidly obese. I live in the Southern Suburbs of Cape Town. Have 2 children that give my life meaning and add, in the most delightful ways, chaos, noise, love and laughter and just the right amount of madness! I have recently been put on blood pressure meds (wtf right?) I have (un)healthy relationship with food and exercise reluctantly!! Some things just have to change!!!
This journey is real! I don’t have paid coaches, dieticians etc.… the plan is to get a training programme off the net, follow a simple LCHF eating plan (low carb, high fat), as I know from past experience this is what works for me… provided I actually stay on course, and with support of friends and family, and a sh!t load of hard work, I will cross the finish line – Successful!
Full disclosure : I ran the race last year with my husband John, he was a fantastic “coach” and the best cheerleader a woman could ask for, while he is also relatively new to this running malarkey, he has excelled! He has completed two half Oceans and this year is running the Oceans Ultra 56kms race. John will be doing his 2nd Comrades Marathon in June ’17 and completed the 65km Ultra Trail Cape Town in December ‘16 and too many other races for me to mention now!! So, the bottom line is I am not going to have him gently coaxing me up the hills this time, its all on me!
Oh.. and I am doing this FOR ME!
