Tell us a little bit about who you are and what you do for a living?
My name is Anathi Titi I am a final law student at NMMU. I am a very outspoken, adventureous person. Love the outdoors and I am a fitness fanatic

How do you balance your exercise regime and your professional life?
Well I wake up at 5 am everyday to go run and inbetween my lecture breaks I find time to go to the gym however when school is too demanding I give up gym but I always make sure never to miss my 5am runs.

When and why did you start running?
I started running in 2014. I didn't like my body & I hated the way clothes would fit in my body because I didn't have a waistline but 2 months into running it was no longer about weightloss I had fallen inlove with running.

What motivates you to go out there, when you do not feel like it?
I always think of the feeling of achievement I get when I am done running. The endorphins, the feeling of happiness i get from running and how I must not allow laziness to get the better of me because if I give in I will never get up and I go.

What is the longest distance you have ran?

What gives you the confidence to run in the streets?

My speed I always feel sexiest when I run.

What do you think about the lack of exercise among the youth?
Lack? Well everyone around me seems to be active, if its not gym, its running or some other sports so Im mostly surrounded by people who workout. I see school kids carrying their sports bag everyday at the beach in PE everyone is running. I think my city is too active, to me I have not noticed any lack of exercise.

What was your best running experience?
2 Oceans Marathon 2015

What was your worst running experience?
My worst are always when I suffer from shin splints while on the road.

How do you push through the pain?
I ignore the pain but when its too much I stop and do shin splint exercises and pace down and I continue running.

What advice can you give somebody who wants to start running?
You must start small. 2km a daily until you can run that 2km without stopping to catch your breath or needing water and you continue being strong in that 2km. When you can run 2km without stopping move to 3km. Distance covered is not really importance what is importance is smaller runs that help you get stronger, help you with pace training and you will notice when you move to 5km you will have endurance..
