In 2016 I won an entry for the Discovery Triathalon through a competition in The Woman’s Health Magazine. I did not know at the time that it was for a Triathalon!
Nevertheless I started training as at that time I could not run, cycle or swim, I know it sounds weird, but that is how it was. Discovery paid for all my lessons, and I just had to go along. Halfway through I decided that I did not want to participate in the swimming so I opted out of that and they then transferred my entry to a Duathalon.
I started training, but half through my Husband took ill and was hospitalised. I eventually completed the Duathalon and Modern Athlete ran a story about me, as I was 68yrs of age at the time.
Sadly my Husband passed away at the end of October (31st) and I went into total depression and hibernation. I did nothing for 2017.
This time I have decided, once again not having been involved in any sport, but am going to tackle the Duathalon only doing the 2.5km run…10km cycle… 2.5km run. I have to now train on my own but have now entered.
I have entered and will be doing it in memory of my late Husband as it takes place on 12th February, and his birthday is 14th February, Valentine’s Day.

Cape Kidney Association
The Cape Kidney Association was founded in 1978 by a group of Nephrology Doctors and Nurses who saw the need to assist the Indigent kidney patients. Patients travel from afar as there are no dialysis units close by. We serve majority patients in the Renal Unit at Groote Schuur and Tygerberg Hospitals. Most of the patients are unemployed and some of them receive disability grants.
