Run Happy

Meet Kim and Dawn

Kim

Who am I?

Friend, daughter, sister, wife, teacher, outdoor enthusiast – from running to cycling, rock climbing and hiking. I love to be outdoors in any form it may take. I passionately adore trail running. Firstly, because of it’s simplicity and the places that it takes me. Secondly, it causes me to become more aware of my best and worst character traits.

This year I decided to run the Comrades Marathon. It was an amazing experience and I felt like a superhero. However, I am now back on the trail and have avoided the road like the plague.

Trail is my happy place, bounding along stony paths and gasping for air up steep climbs. I can’t wait for the adventure leading up to UTCT with my kindred spirited friend! It’s going to be one hell of a ride! Or rather, trail run!

Dawn

I love adventure. And what better way than to spend it with another like minded human!! My background is road running – completed back to back Comrades (tick) and then decided that I needed a change of scenery. So invested in some trail shoes. Oooooeeeee!!! Yes!!! Loving it.

The adventure.

The dirt.

The occasional face – plant. And the challenges. And this is what Ultra – Trail Cape Town is about. Sharing this adventure with Kim, the training, tears, laughter and pulling each other through 65 km of Cape Town trails. Bring. It. On.

Adventure awaits

We love to have fun. Matching shirts have been made for our UTCT adventure and our theme on the front is to “Run Happy”.  #keep smiling is our moto from the back. It doesn’t mean that we will always be happy or it will always be easy. It will, however, be good. We will be trailing together and making memories and adventures. Celebrating the journey with the destination! Bring on Cape Town. Wahoo!

Oh, the places you’ll go!

Congratulations

Today is your day

You’re off to great places!

You’re off and away! … Dr Seuss

Trail running is a passion of mine that I want to share with others. I am blessed with an amazing husband and two gorgeous kids which keep me on my toes. As a Physiotherapist, I want to share my knowledge of how our bodies work and have this space to discuss everything trail!
