Two Oceans Marathon

April 20, 2014

The reason for my trip to Cape Town waste run the Two Oceans, 56k. The marathon is called the most Beautiful Marathon in the World and I fully support that their must not be another to rival how amazing it was. The elevation was indeed a challenge but the scenery and spirit of South Africa. I had no idea how athletic this country was, there are cycling events and marathons every weekend all over the country. No wonder the Two Oceans always sells out. Below are photos from the race on a perfect day to run in Cape Town.

I met Sasja while Ken and I were running along and all of the sudden I see a women running with the Texas flag shorts that I had planned on wearing. As it turns out she and her husband were visiting from Houston so was fun to have a running buddy from home. We all went to a nice dinner after in Camps Bay and saw the magnificent sundown. Below are a couple of the after pictures including one funny one after Conor and I had a few too many.

After all I have seen of Cape Town I look forward to seeing more tomorrow for my last day here. I highly recommend anyone who would like to try a overseas marathon to come to here and experience all that was the Two Oceans.
