Anna, a Survivor herself, is set to do a few more runs over the next few months, but I am sure that none will be as freezing cold wet, and challenging as yesterday’s run up the West Coast was. Anna braved freezing cold weather and rain to not only complete the 80kms, but to continue to run for the full 12 hours.

I am not sure how many of you are aware of the fact that on June 15 and 16 a few hardy athletes ran the equivalent of 2 Comrades Marathons and a parkrun (5km distance) plus a few kilometers more.
This was the PowerRun 2015 FB, a spiritual run about touching the whole community of Cape Town… organised by a group of Christians whose ideal is to stand for the rebuilding of all the communities of Cape Town and for fixing all the walls in our city.
The run started at midnight at Powerhouse International Ministries Durbanville and the runners had to contend with gusting winds, pitch blackness and torrential rain. Those who managed to finish arrived back at Powerhouse Durbanville around 3:30pm.
Of course our own little powerhouse, Dynamite Lady Anna Jooste was there to do her bit, but unfortunately had a bit of a problem part of the way through the course, but we will let her tell it in her own words…
Anna Jooste is a tiny package of dynamite! She is also a Cancer Survivor. She is also a Cancer Survivor that is giving back by running in aid of Little Fighters Cancer Trust to raise funds for Children with Cancer!
Tomorrow Anna will do her first run – an attempt to run for 12 hours straight, which is a feat in itself, and she will be more challenged due to the freezing, wet weather in the Western Cape at the moment. Anna will be running in Vredendal.
Little Fighters Cancer Trust would like to take this opportunity to thank Anna and also to wish her good luck for tomorrow!
