This is not an event. And we are not event organisers

I believe that for the Unogwaja Challenge, union, giving and involvement are indispensable conditions to carry out the journey. Once we are part of a chain all the links have the same importance, otherwise the whole process is not possible. I understand that besides anyone has it’s own support, all the members of Unogwaja Team will be responsible one for each other and two for the challenge as a whole.

How do you think you will deal with adversity or things that don’t meet with your expectations?

Because I am a positive person, every time I face adversities, even getting little nervous, I always think that we solve everything with affection, love and a big deep breath. One of my characteristics is to be calm. I believe I am strong enough to support pain and difficulties. I think that my mind is stronger then my body and I always push over my capacities. When in group, I try to put myself in the others people’s place and I try to find a solution.

Why I am ready for The Unogwaja Challenge 2017:

I am a runner for seven years now, I ran eight marathons and seven ultra marathons. Besides the two Comrades. I normally follow training programs seriously and I am very disciplined. I started to cycle two years ago.
