Dr. Caroline Pule
I’m a Medical Scientist (PhD) who is passionate about global health, medical research & ensuring we have a disease-free nation; philanthropist, founder and CEO of the Caroline Pule Science and Literacy Foundation (CPSLF) and a fitness inspiration. Besides being a scientist; I am a passionate runner, advanced hiker & gym fanatic.
My love for running started when I was in primary school where I did more cross country, relay (400m) and 800m. Athletics was my nickname and grew with this passion until now.
I love running because it is liberating, inspirational, encouraging, easy yet so challenging. I also love inspiring others through my running adventures and journey; through other fitness activities I do, including kickboxing, hiking, swimming, gym cross-fitness and skipping rope. Biggest running achievement to date.
Completing my first ever Comrades Marathon 2019 “The Ultimate Human Race” at 11:30:33. Tears of victory! Nothing can explain that feeling; it was a long day of running with many hills from the start, yet inspiring and humbling. I’m so proud of myself; this made me realize how strong I am both physically and mentally! I have a fighting spirit no matter what I face as one needed to be motivated. This is really a special race; I still don’t believe I ran all the way from Durban to Pietermaritzburg.
