Six running goals that aren’t Comrades

What Annette has to say about her coaching experience

Annette FNB 10KM 2016

I started on my running programme with Staci in August – one of the best investments in time and money I have ever made!   From the first gentle run with Staci in Rivonia I felt that I was with someone highly professional, organised and also warm and always encouraging but also realistic as to my abilities and potential.

In the last two months I have done five 10 km races, as was my goal; the first being the FNB Jozi 10 km.  My daughter Melissa and I ran with Staci and some others, and it was a wonderful and affirming experience.  It was great to have Staci and Ian there to share the fun and sense of achievement.

I then did the Chamberlains race in Pretoria, again with Staci to show me the ropes – these huge events can be rather intimidating!  I really enjoy the different venues, the Union Buildings being the most recent one, where the Tom Jenkins run started.

Apart from the benefits of feeling really great after a run, and losing a few kilograms, I have found running has helped me cope better generally with stressful situations, especially work-related ones.  I highly recommend Staci as a coach and feel the last few months have been really life-changing, in an entirely positive way.
