Cycling Race

Haile Gebreselassie once said: “No race begins at the starting line”.  And, in pure cliché fashion, mine was no different.  
On the 18th of July 2022, I was hospitalised due to excruciating leg, knee, back and neck pain. Buzz words, such as “meningitis”, “lumber punctures, “ankylosing spondylitis” and the likes thereof struck me with enormous fear and anxiety.  My anchor was, this is from the Decree of Allah and everything from Allah is Goodness.  With Allah’s grace, I returned to school a week later, with renewed hope and trust in Allah - fresh, determined and focused. 
Three weeks later, on the 13th of August 2022, Allah guided me to Mr Abdullah Sujee, who presented me with his detailed autobiography entitled “Teach and Lead” as a gift for my participation in the Grade 10 AMS Speech Contest.  Mr Sujee was incredibly accessible, kind, motivating and allowed me the privilege to rely on him for assistance and advice. This interaction together with reading his autobiography left me with a somewhat indelible mark.  So, when I realised that Mr Sujee was participating in the Tour Durban Cycling Race, I was immediately inspired to believe that this is doable.
