Highveld Stereo's weeknd breakfast show host Brad Brown will hit the road again this year on May 29 for his second attempt at one of the most gruelling races of the year, the Comrades.
This will be his second attempt after he managed to run an impressive 60km in last year's race before he had to give up. But this year he is back stronger, leaner and more determined than ever.
Where it all began
In 2009 Brad weighed in at a disturbing 165kg's and claims that after endless attempts at unsuccessful dieting, he joined a local running club and began the challenging journey to fitness and health.
"Anything is possible. Dont ever give up. There will be times when you fail and things don't go your way, that is not the time to throw in the towel. That is the time to get up and try again."
