Before running a big race it's important to prep and train. The Outsurance Life Kfm Gun Run 2019 is happening on the 20th of October 2019 and Liezel van der Westhuizen is sharing her tips on how to get race-day ready.

Liezel says she's very big on running with a friend or in groups and shares her reasons why.

After a near attack incident on table mountain during a run alone earlier this year, I now always team up with a friend when I run. It's not only safer but also a whole lot of fun.

Running with a friend keeps me motivated and will keep you accountable, and make sure you (both) stay on track.

Having a running partner can help you fix any bad running habits or bad running form.

I spend a lot of time travelling and find running with my friends the perfect way to connect in this already rushed world. It's also cheaper than going out for drinks or dinner.

Find new roads or trails to run together. That way it keeps the training fun and interesting.
