Sunday 11th June 2023, you might be in Pietermaritzburg. Yes, at the 96th Comrades Marathon, the 2023 edition. The down-run to a new finish line, at the Kingsmeade Stadium. Imagine that! Actually it’s the power of imagination that brought you to this point in life. (And a few months of run training but who’s counting). If you consider the race’s origins (and it’s all there at http://www.comrades.com under the ‘History’ tab) they lie in honouring the sacrifice, endurance and fortitude of those ‘comrades in arms’ who fell in “The Great War from 1914 to 1918”. World War I was one of the deadliest conflicts in history, and set the stage for another world war just 20 years later. You and Vic Clapham have something in common. You both imagined making that Comrades dream come alive.
So Vic Clapham had envisioned a future. And look the 93rd event. Now tell me dear listener.
What does it mean to envision the future?
Often we make goals, but life distracts us and we forget about those plans. We’re then surprised, and sometimes frustrated because another year has passed and we’re not any closer to where we wanted to be just a few months before. 2 Timothy 4: I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Keep the faith, enjoy the run, my name is Heiko God bless you and remember, take it easy.
