Andriette vd Merwe (49) ZA, 20 miles

6.54 miles in Riversdale Moditlo Estate (runner profile)

This fellow gave me a bit of a scare. Would not let me pass. Spoke to him nicely but he was obviously not in a mood for negotiations. Circled around me and chased me from the other side. Was scary to stand my ground but I did, and eventually, he decided to move away. First time directly challenged by an elephant. This was only 200m into my run of 2 laps. Shaky but finished my 10km (Fri 1)

3.04 miles in Parkrun Hoedspruit (runner profile)

My personal best on the Parkrun. Took 1 minute 24 seconds off previous best. Great way to end the year. Grateful for the hours of injury free training. I have come a long way from a traumatic injury a year ago. Thanks Run The World and all the awesome athletes for being such an inspiration. It has been a very emotional week for me. Doinf a best time on a 10k on Monday. 46 degrees celsius on Thursday, then 46mm of rain on Friday, after the morning run that took my total miles for Run the world over 150. So so needed as it was super dry. Then the Parkrun result. Inbetween it was Christmas, that was spend quietly at home with only my hubby and daughters. Could not have asked for more. Hope all have an injury free 2019 with the wind always in your back (Sat 29) / Total Miles 173.73 since 10/24/18
