Q. Who are you and what you do for a living?
Choene Rammutla. I am a husband, a father and I am employed full time as IT Project Manager at one of the Corporate and Investment Banks in Sandton 

Q. How do you balance your exercise regime and your professional life?
One word: Diary. I find that having a structured approach to training and professional life is key to maintaining a balance. Secondly, every session has a defined outcome.

Q. When and why did you start running?
I started running as soon as I could walk, as an infant, and seriously in 2015.

Because running (cardio) does wonders to one’s health, primarily the heart. Secondly, it was to test my limits as a human being.

Q. What motivates you to go out there, when you do not feel like it?
The running goals I have set for myself needs one to do the hours. Secondly, I tell myself that not feeling like it is part of mental training.

Q. What is the longest distance you have ran?
2016 Comrades Ultra Marathon (89.3km)

Q. What gives you the confidence to run in the streets?
Running the streets is freedom. It is the best way to explore the neighbourhood.

Q. What do you think about the lack of exercise?
It puzzles me that some people don’t create time to exercise. I believe exercise is one of the best and natural forms to neutralise all the bad things that are due to processed food we consume, the air pollution and air conditioned buildings, etc. 

Q. What was your best running experience?
I treasure every running experience and take lots of pictures. I love running in Groenkloof, Pretoria because one get a chance to sport rabbits and take a selfie with Zebras.

Q. What was your worst running experience?
None, running is delight.

Q. How do you push through the pain?
One has to have a toolbox of motivational philosophies then refer to when the going gets tough. I read lots of books, biographies and other people’s stories.

Q. What advice can you give somebody who wants to start running?
Same advice I give to Kagiso and Mohau. Have fun and build confidence, the rest will follow.
