Are you preparing for your very first Two Oceans? Your first half? Your first ultra?
If it will be your first, I can feel with you. I remember my first Two Oceans as if it would have been yesterday.
On March, 31st 2018 I’ll join you, my fellow runners, wearing a yellow number, indicating that I’m on my way to my permanent, blue number for 10 Two Oceans Ultra finishes.
If you would have told me this 12 years ago, I would have said: „You are insane. Running a marathon is crazy, and what is an ultra marathon anyway?“
How times can change.
This flyer started everything…
Read my story about how I got into Ultra Marathon Running and about my journey from an occasional jogger to someone attempting his 10th Two Oceans Ultra Marathon in my post on the OMTOM blog: http://www.twooceansmarathon.org.za/blogs/dane/occasional-runner-blue-number
If you see me on the route – no matter if during the race or during my training runs somewhere along the Atlantic Seaboard or on the trails of Table Mountain – please say hi.
