I got SMASHED by Two Oceans Ultra 2018

Just last week, the 2019 edition of the Two Oceans Ultra Marathon sold out in a matter of hours. All the gees and excitement around next year’s event just made me want to share and relive the sheer EPICNESS that was my first attempt at what they call “the worlds most beautiful marathon”.


This year was my first Two Oceans Ultra Marathon. I can’t help feeling connected to this race as it’s basically where the Leave the Couch story began in 2013.


To be honest, I hadn’t planned to run the 2018 race. I was just over gambling to try and get an entry to the half marathon through their lottery process, so I guessed an entry to the ultra would be easier to score lol. Little did I know what I was in for…


Here is a vlog of my race experience:



Oh, and here’s a picture of the MASSIVE blister that I had on my left foot after the race:

I basically had 6 toes


I hope you didn’t have lunch while reading this bwhahahahahaahaha


Can’t believe I entered the 2019 edition… I’m a sucker for punishment

    Video looks great. Shooting footage while running an ultra takes some doing. Well done!
