Hi my name is Lawrence Mthiyane I’m 38 years from the Village called Embo. I have been running for over 21 years. 1998 I ran my first marathon, I even surprised myself when I performed well. Winning competitions inspired me to do more until one day I decided I’m going for the big one COMRADES MARATHON.
I ran my first comrades in 2008 and completed in 7.5hrs. This encouraged me to do more. Watching my heroes run and win races truly inspires me. I train rigorously dedicated and focused. I ensure that I run at my own pace and have the proper attire for the races particularly the comrade’s marathon.
My goal is to one day hold that gold medal in my hand, that will be a dream come true.
