This week, the Runner In The Spotlight is Deon!!!
Deon has been running for about a year, and is rarely absent from our Tuesday/ Thursday/ Saturday training sessions. The title of this blog is: Run for a reason, or run for fun....and Deon's reason for running IS because it's fun! Along the way, Deon has PR'd at the Full Moon 5K with a 29:22 scorching, and knocked out the Aquarium Half Marathon in 2:27:10.
Deon ran these PRs in Adidas Supernovas, but has recently switched to Asics 2130s in the very cool black and silver!
Deon rewards himself with plenty of good food after a PR or a hard workout.
His favorite is recovery meal is Lucky Charms with Nestles Quick strawberry milk...and rye toast with melted gummy bears.
But I have witnessed him buying the fuel that drives him, loading up on the basics: Gu and Clif Bars!
