After brilliant Easter break and excitement of Livingstone, I am struggling a little to get back into my school routine. Goodbye to late nights and staying in bed until midday. Hello 05:30 wake up calls, school and homework. This is depressing. I am already looking forward to summer holidays.
However, not everything is doom and gloom. In fact there, recently, there has been a good splash of colour in my life.
Last Saturday, Dad and I have signed up for Isuzu Ultra Marathon and guess what? I actually have won!!!
OK, I must admit, I didn’t actually run a Marathon distance but I have chosen a less challenging option of a three hour colour run. All I had to do is to run as far as possible within 3 hours whilst spectators were throwing colour powder at us. It was brilliant fun.
I have managed to cover 19 kilometres in 3 hours. Dad decided to avoid colour throwing crowd and therefore managed to go a bit further and has managed 28 kilometres. I could have gone further but Dad was finished. He was almost crawling. Can I just add that we were running in 27 C heat. Not easy.
I have actually gone further distance than anyone in girls and boys category group! I have received a trophy and a shiny medal.
Tomorrow, I am off on a school trip to Kafue National Park, which is the second biggest National Park in Africa. We will be staying for two days the New Kalala Camp, and I am really excited!!! Hopefully we will see some nice animals!!! Photos to follow up after the trip so keep checking the blog!!!!
