Last week I ran my second Diacore Gaborone Marathon, two years after the first. I was worried that I hadn’t done enough long runs during training to perform well, compared to how I remembered training before my first attempt, but I managed to knock 9 minutes off.
So, for the benefit of anybody who is thinking about running further and outside their comfort zone here are a few notes on my preparation and anecdotal evidence on how to survive.
Woke up this morning to a good old Twitter storm, seems like a couple of young South African rappers Nasty C and Emtee were booked to perform at a Skyy Infusion gig at Stanbic Bank Piazza in Gaborone, Botswana. Neither of them showed up, and Nasty C claimed that something went wrong with his flight arrangements.
