One more week till #myfirsttri just starting to use a swim cap and ear plugs. #BrickToday #GrowingGrit

20 years ago I was scared of bicycles. #GoodSweat #MyFirstTri #GrowingGrit

I was petrified to dream a dream this big but my heart is so thankful for all the amazing people who have gone before me, and paved a way of wisdom, for me to follow in their incredible footsteps in attempting to run the Comrades Marathon.
I know not to be arrogant and assume I'll make it just because I entered- this race has a reputation for humbling even the softest soul... I am so blady amped to try though: being on the cover of @runnersworldza magazine gave me that little extra mental boost to be as fearless as the legends who have appeared on the cover before me ;) #RWComrades #growinggrit #dreambig #alive #getthefoottapping

Research suggests the best predictor of long-term success is good old fashioned grit. Here are 5 ways to encourage #perseverance and #resilience in your child. See our blog for more details. #qtime #eqtainment #qwunder #growinggrit #educhat

We made it!!! We made the base camp summit in the afternoon and were the only people there. It was a dream! We played so much in the snow... It was painfully obvious that we don't get this at home.

Waking up above 4000m in negative conditions with a positive attitude. An amphitheatre of Himalayan peaks outside ready for us to admire them. Wow... Special moments are created at 5am in the morning.

Top of Poon Hill this morning. 4am start to see the sunrise.
We have officially completed the Annapurna circuit.
We are supposed to relax now but Bri has challenged us to do Annapurna base camp.

So, we start for Base Camp today. We are doing a 10 day hike in 6 days.

Sometimes we go off the track when we see waterfalls. We managed go get to the bottom of this bad boy and enjoy the fresh water. By this time we were already drenched in sweat so hiking in cooler wet gear seemed like a fantastic idea!

This is a pic from yesterday. We are so happy to be here but we are constantly humbled. We struggled with a combination of elements yesterday: - boiling hot sun
- freezing cold wind
- mini dust cyclones - lack of water availability
It was a tough day. If we get through this, I rate we will look back in 5 years and be very proud. Right now, we are just suffering.
But like Bri always says, "We didn't sign up for easy, we signed up to trek mountains"

Today-Day 4- things got real.
Honestly, we were perhaps a little arrogant in our abilities. We are okay but we saw four different people who had to turn back because the elements were too much for them to cross the pass that sits at 5 416m (we cross this, hopefully, in two days). We also saw a helicopter air lift people twice.
Our diet tonight was garlic EVERYTHING and ginger tea, where we ate the ginger afterwards.

There is no space for flu- even if we don't particularly agree with the effects of garlic. The positive, in the mountains, outweighs the negatives.

The animals own the road.

My favourite is watching the chickens run the houses. Literally chickens, goats and ducks walking in and out of homes. They are like Cape Town dogs- in charge.
My heart is so warm. We literally just sit and chill with the cows. Here they are called something that is pronounced like 'nguys'. #nepal #annapurnacircuit #annapurna #lifereallyisthisgoodrightnow #livingincolour #getthefoottapping #growinggrit #best #travel #journey

No wifi or electicity yesterday and wow- it was one of the best days of my life.

Wilderness Woman and Mountain Mad-Man lit life up. Simple living personified. Stories, dreams and a whole lot of adventure. We are still alive :) #day2 #annapurnacircuit #annapurna #nepal8thwonder #wilderness #simplelife #outdoorguru #growinggrit

Day 3. Today things got hectic. We have seen many people turn around or unable to complete the day. We have managed the physical part but whether we will survive food/ water poisoning and altitude sickness is a factor we are doing our best to control. Food poisoning has sent most people home... It's only day 3 so that's bladey terrifying... #gettinglegit #growinggrit #day3 #lastofthewaterfalls #getthefoottapping #annapurnacircuit #nepal #trail #alive

Crossing steal bridges. There is NO room for fear. Vasbyt en stap. Honestly feel so alive... I cannot take a step without knowing what a blessing it is to be here. I never knew it was possible to say "Ahhhhhhhhh" so many times in one day.
