A little over 4 years ago, I discovered running as a remedy to dealing with the pressures and stresses of life. I'm now completely obsessed and passionate about it as it's something I do almost everyday.
I started running during a difficult time in my life when I had given myself over to my vices but running honestly saved my life. It started off as a hobby but quickly turned into a passion as the competitive nature in me always drives me to do my best to become the best at everything I do.
On track, I do the middle distances(800m to 3000m) and on the road I've ran 10km and 21km races. I've had some success locally as I've won the majority of my races(I've got the medals to prove it) , unfortunately, they're not nationally recognized.
The plan now is to dominate the local circuit, then reach national level, dominate that also, then take it all the way to international competitions.
Being from Bushbuckridge, mpumalanga, I realize that hometown lacks the facilities(gyms and stadiums) necessary to hone my skills accordingly, to reach my goals. If I need to do something meaningful with my training I'd have to go to either polokwane or nelrpuit and that has been costly as I do not have the support necessary to allow me to do high level training on a regular basis.
Its frustrating knowing the potential I possess and not being able to cultivate it how I need to. So here I am asking for your help:
I truly believe I can become one of the best runners(if not the best) in the world in my events, I just have to train, train, train.
And I am ready for the pressure and stress that comes with training at a high level. I am ready for the pain. I am ready to surpass my limits and unlock my potential.
I just need you to help me pay for the necessities(gym membership and sports gear) for this type of training.
