{ #WomanCrushWednesday Q & A | Carla Wasserfall }

I met Carla (along with her family) at a ride in the Cradle and have bumped into her at a few races along the way. Always striving to do her best (and then giving thanks to God when she does), this vibrant entrepreneur is filled with positivity and humbleness. Have a read about her triathlon… Continue reading { #WomanCrushWednesday Q & A | Carla Wasserfall }

Robyn & I have been following each other for a while on Insta. She is always posting such positive and supportive comments. I liked her before we actually even met. We bumped into each other one day at the Dischem Sun City Swim and the rest, they say, is history. I recently got to spend… Continue reading { #WomanCrushWednesday Q & A | Robyn Begemann }

You know how I am always talking about how amazing this sport is because of all the awesome people you get to meet? Well Monique is one of those people that I have been lucky to meet along this tri journey. We occasionally attended spin classes together and she had the same "This isn't sweat,… Continue reading { #WomanCrushWednesday Q & A | Monique Van Niekerk }

{ Always earned | Never given }

This morning I logged onto FB and saw that two of my friends did their first triathlons this weekend. I know it’s abnormal to get so excited about people doing their first triathlons, but it brings so much happiness to my heart to hear the proud words they post about their accomplishments. These posts got… Continue reading { Always earned | Never given }

{ #WomanCrushWednesday Q & A | Hanneli van Tonder }

“Dynamite comes in small packages” is a term they coined for Hannanannahha (as I like to call her). She is feisty AF and fast to boot. Any training session or race with her in, is fun from beginning to end. She is ballsy and loud and I love her attitude of "anything the boys can… Continue reading { #WomanCrushWednesday Q & A | Hanneli van Tonder }

{ #WomanCrushWednesday Q & A | Anine Kukard }

If you have ever done a triathlon, you know it is generally quite a tough thing to take on. Imagine doing a triathlon as a guide for someone who is partially blind! Tough just became tougher. And that is how I see Anine Kukard - one tough cookie! The first time I met Anine (also… Continue reading { #WomanCrushWednesday Q & A | Anine Kukard }

{ 5150 Bela Bela 2018 | Race Report }

The 5150 Bela Bela race has such a special place in my heart. In part because it was my first Olympic distance triathlon back in 2014 and also because it’s hard and after I finish it, I feel like I can conquer the world. I was rather nervous for this race. I packed my bags… Continue reading { 5150 Bela Bela 2018 | Race Report }

{ Ironman 70.3 Durban 2018 | Race Report }

This race was the last of the 3 South African Ironman races I had planned to do. It was hosted in my hometown of Durban and I had a few friends doing it for their first time, so it was very special before it even started. For those of you that didn’t know, I supported… Continue reading { Ironman 70.3 Durban 2018 | Race Report }

{ I am not FAT | I have fat! }

I have a confession to make. I sometimes call myself names while pinching my fat rolls and beat myself up when I see I have picked up a kilogram or two.  I think I am my own worst enemy.

I know I always say it, but I really want to write more. I also really like giving people advice. I think this is partly because I have have learnt many a lesson before (my dad always says that you never stop paying school fee's - no matter how old you are). So I thought… Continue reading { This Betty Loves | Funky Pants }

This race has definitely got to be one of my favourite on the race calendar. Hosted by the Pretoria Police Marathon Club, the route runs through the streets of Pretoria North with the start and end point being Wonderboom Junction.

World meet Riana.

I'm sure that once in your life, you must have been a victim of chafe. Be it from a bad bra, a crappy material’d shirt or just general sweaty mermaid thighs. I'm almost certain if you have ever swum, cycled or ran you will know exactly what I mean by the word victim. I’ve spent… Continue reading { Chafe | The athlete evil }

If you speak to triathletes, the one thing they have in common is how this sport has brought random people into their world. Esther is one of these people in my triathlon story.

This race was definitely one for the books. Everything about it was so magical and finally being able to complete a 70.3 distance race was a bucket list item.
