As a dedicated ultra marathon runner, with currently 5 Two Oceans Ultra and 3 Comrades medals, I had the priviledge of being the running guide for the well know South African blind runner Hein Wagner.
Hein was born blind and became a successful sales manager, extreme adventurer and motivational speaker.
I never guided a blind runner before and received the request just 5 days prior to the 56 km Ultra Marathon in 2013. I am glad I got the opportunity and took it – I learned a lot from it!
You can find more about this running adventure on my Ultra Marathon Website:http://ultra-marathon-man.blogspot.com/2013/03/change-of-plans-for-my-two-oceans-ultra.html
On April 8th I am going to talk about what I learned at the Social of my running club Atlantic Athletics Club in Cape Town. The name of the talk will be “We don’t see what we see“.
If you are interested in this talk for your own club or business, please get in touch with me.
