IRVETTE VAN ZYL FROM NEDBANK RUNNING CLUB GN RUNS TO VICTORY IN DURBAN AT TOTALSPORTS LADIES RACE
The streets of Durban were teaming with activity on Sunday, 20 July 2014 when over 4000 runners and walkers gathered at the Berea Rovers Sports Club to participate in the annual Totalsports Ladies Race. Irvette Van Zyl (Nedbank Running Club) was the lady to beat, completing the 10km race in an impressive time of 33 minutes 49 seconds.
According to Van Zyl, the start was hectic. This is only my third race this year, having come back after six months of no running due to injuries. Wanting to prove that I can still run, I think I started the race a little too fast. I hit a bad patch between 3km and 7kms. My legs werent responding, and I was just overthinking things. I felt strong again from 7kms onwards.
I am really happy to once again finish under 34 minutes, continues Van Zyl. I am currently training for a marathon that is taking place in September. So I have had to be patient, not going too fast too soon. I am happy to run injury free. The atmosphere at the Totalsports Ladies Race was really nice. Womens Day is definitely a big deal. Its nice to support a good cause and to see so many women standing together. Rutendo Nyahora (Nedbank Running Club) came in second, while Jenna Challenor (Boxer Athletic Club) finished third.
Held in celebration of National Womens Day, the Totalsports Ladies Race supports PinkDrive, a Public Benefit Organisation (PBO) that is committed to improving breast cancer awareness, education, and providing and offering services to women across South Africa.
