Ironman 70.3 Race Report

Posted by Rogeema Kenny on Saturday, September 8, 2018, In : Triathlon 

It has become somewhat of the norm that my posts are super late, but I could not let another triathlon season start without getting my race report of the 2018 Ironman 70.3 Buffalo City out. The race was a life-changing moment for me, and my hope is that my experience can inspire others to go for their dreams and goals no matter what, because the Ironman slogan has been proven to be true over and over again… ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE. 

After all the formalities of registration and racking was do...

My biggest Ironfan

Posted by Rogeema Kenny on Friday, September 7, 2018, In : Triathlon 

She deserves a special post. To the best sister ever, the most awesome #IronFan that I could’ve asked for, THANK YOU for everything you did ❤️

She was initially going to fly up with me on Friday, but then after race dates came out she realized Redhill Marathon was the Saturday. She then booked another ticket to fly up to EL on Saturday immediately after running Redhill 42km, but then collapsed in the last km of the marathon and ended up in the medical tent. Being sick and not in a condit...

Modern Athlete magazine feature - March 2018

Posted by Rogeema Kenny on Saturday, May 19, 2018, In : Triathlon 
While I haven't written a post-race report of my Ironman 70.3 race day experience yet (and I haven't forgotten about it), I was featured in the Modern Athlete March 2018 issue. Modern Athlete is the biggest running and multi-sport publication in the country, so I am truly humbled to have had the opportunity to share my story in the magazine.

It's time to tame the Buffalo

Posted by Rogeema Kenny on Saturday, January 27, 2018, In : Triathlon 

So race weekend is finally here! After all those years of dreaming and months of training, I am now looking out onto the beach that we will swim at, and the road we will ride and run in.

It has been an incredible journey.



Done with registration and expo, and as I retreat to the silence of my own company...relaxing on the bed and looking through my window at the esplanade, I glance over at the backpack on the dressing table counter that says “IRONMAN”. Contemplating the magnitude of what it...

Two weeks until we tame the Buffalo

Posted by Rogeema Kenny on Friday, January 12, 2018, In : Triathlon 

So it's the start of 2018 and it's been 3.5 years since I did my first triathlon. It’s also 2 weeks away from my biggest sporting challenge yet. On 28 January 2018, I will line up at Orient Beach in East London for the start of the Ironman 70.3 triathlon, otherwise also known as the Half Ironman. It involves a 1.9km swim, a 90km cycle, and a 21km run

I’ve always said that endurance sport changes one. The person that starts their first marathon is not the same person that finishes it for ...

I TRI'd ... to SWIM, BIKE, RUN!

Posted by Rogeema Kenny on Monday, June 23, 2014, In : Triathlon 

It's November 2013, and a conversation goes something like this...


Rog: Jacques, don't you wanna do Impi with me in April?
Hoff: How far is it?
Rog: It's a 10-12km trail run with 18 obstacles in it
Hoff: Ja, that would be fun, but if I do Impi with you then you must do a triathlon with me.

Rog: Uhm *gets shocked look on face* But I can't swim!
Hoff: I'll teach you
Rog: Uhm...Ok

That little conversation would be the beginning of a journey that would change parts of my life as I knew it. 

Hoff is Ja...
