[MARATHON #181 / 10th Om Die Dam / 17 MARCH 2018]
Running Om Die Dam is a bit like having kids:
- Some people have one kid and decide that’s enough;
- Quite a few people have one kid, take a few years to recuperate before having another (and maybe squeeze out one more after that) – but then they’re done for good, knowing with certainty that that’s enough;
- Some people stick to “recreational running”, deciding never to have kids after seeing the haggard and traumatised faces of friends with kids and hearing their tired tales of endurance;
- But then there are those crazy people who just keep popping out kids year after year. I am one of those crazy people – having just popped out my 10th Om Die Dam.
