VAL WATSON

Sport of Choice: Running

I started running in 1992, my husband did Two Oceans and that’s when the bug bit . Decided if you can’t beat them join them!

When my dad was alive my running was for him, he was my best supporter ever. Nowadays I run to make my husband and sponsors proud. I am not competitive, I run against myself and what happens at the finish line is a bonus

My favourite thing about running is the freedom it gives you and all the wonderful friends you make on the road. Runners are very special people.
