Safaricom Half Marathon

<p>Over the weekend I ran the Safaricom Half Marathon on Lewa Conservancy to raise funds for Tusk Trust.&nbsp; It was an incredible experience, but a tough run-6500 ft altitude, and some killer hills.&nbsp; I went up with Matt Brown of The Nature Conservancy (TNC).&nbsp;</p>

<p>My last few kilometers of the run I was struggling and ended up running next to one of the TNC team members who very sweetly coached me through to the end of the run.&nbsp; TNC had the amazing Scott Jurek running for them, I got to chat to him and TNC got me a signed copy of his new book &#39;Eat &amp; Run&#39;.</p>
