I started running late 2018 with barely any focus but just the mood of the moment. After interacting with other social runners, my interest grew. I invested more time and worked towards improving my racing time for various distances. I always start the race knowing the effort I've put in and am about to commit to.
I am happy with the progress so far and have managed to achieve personal bests as follows: 5KM - 17:25; 10KM - 35:53; 21.1KM - 1:20:32; and 42.2KM - 2:48:04.
Take Away: don't dream of winning, train for it!
The route is called the Nyathuna Loop and starts at Gathiga Road junction along Getathuru Road on your way to Wangige (at the This N That Business Park).
Look out for cars/trucks as the route passes through Ndenderu-Kikuyu by-pass still under construction.
I chose this route because it's gradually Hilly, 70% trail, minimal human/traffic disruption, and superb altitude. All are welcomed to explore this marvelous route.
