Update 15 July 2015

Hello ‪#‎TeamRich‬. Sorry we’ve been quiet. It has been a rather intense time again for Rich and his headaches. We seem to go in patches and the last 10 days he has had a 10/10 headache.

I did want to let you all that that we continue to appreciate your love and support. It’s a comfort knowing how many people have Rich in their prayers.
If anyone wants to visit, please do. He would love to lie and watch a movie or hear stories. Please inbox our page or message Mum to arrange.

Sister of the Mister – training update

Hello ‪#‎TeamRich‬. Pips here… Fun story for you all.
I had a “meeting” with my trainer & legendary brother Richard on Sunday. Me, the lazy sister is facing the 2 oceans half in just a few weeks time, followed by the Knysna Half in July and I wanted to make sure my training was on track. I’m currently running / training 3 x per week and getting a slow but consistent time for a 5km run around 33 – 35 mins…
Rich horrified with my time for a 5km (he was a 5min / km runner) swiftly blinks out this response “Pips, you need to be doing 5 runs a week!”. “5?”, I say. “5?? I mean I can’t run 5 times per week, are you sure Rich?? He looks up for yes.
“What about my social life?” He laughs…
Clearly the sister of the mister is not quite the fit sister she needs to be. Onwards to the prom to get more runs in… PS. sorry friends, but you won’t be seeing me for sundowner cocktails for a while…

Running 2015km in 2015 for Rich

Keep track of Russel and his Brother who are running 2015km for Rich in 2015 on the website: http://www.runningforrich.com/. Incredible support from an incredible family.

There is also a Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/RunningforRichHolland to stay up to date.

In 2014 Tammy La Grange, a close family friend of the Zim Hollands took it upon herself to raise funds towards the Back On Your Bike campaign. Tammy humble in her persona managed to raise over US$3000 and covered 2014km in 2014.

2015 sees new challenges, hurdles and mountains to climb, so Russel set the challenge once again with thanks to Tammy, by running 2015km in 2015 for the Back on your Bike campaign. With great support and encouragement Russel’s twin brother Ryan will be running as well taking on the 2015km in 2015 challenge together to raise awareness and funds towards Bike On Your Bike.
