Running the annual Comrades Marathon is one great challenge that requires not only fitness of the body but fitness of the mind as well. It's a challenge that many are tempted to give up on very easilly, but not Kabelo Mabalane and Romeo Kumalo.
The two men ran the 96th Comrades Marathon on Sunday and it was all sweat, smiles, aching bodies but most importantly, it was a successful run for both men as well.
Kabelo celebrated his 10th marathon run since he started it back in 2007 and by the looks at how determined he has become at running the race every year, we have no doubt he'll be running the marathon right into his 50's and 60's.
Kabelo even ran his personal best of 8hrs10minutes. Although there were parts of the marathon that nearly got the best of him, he continued to soldier on to beat his previous time last year.
Romeo Kumalo also ran his personal best of 8hrs53minutes, just 43 minutes behind Kabelo Mabalane. And of course, his beautiful wife, Basetsana Kumalo and their kids were right there to cheer their hero on.
Basetsana even prepared lunch for her hubby to eat at the 30km mark where her and their kids were waiting.
A wife here to support her husband all the way, she even wore a t-shirt written Kumalo for her man, love it!
