Determined to get that Bill Rowan medal, I religiously stuck to my programme. I documented all of my activities on a comprehensive Excel spreadsheet (don’t judge – I’m a scientist 🤓).
My hope was to run Two Oceans in under five hours, despite many people telling me that the first one should just be run for the experience. I obligingly nodded my head in agreement but thought to myself “I’ll show them!”. Boy, was I wrong!
