According to Phalula, it was really nice running at home.  “There was a very nice vibe on the day.  I was surprised by the support.  Everyone seemed to know my name and shouted for me as I ran past.  Taking part in a Women’s Race on National Women’s Day is very special.  This is Ubuntu, power to the women.  On Monday I will participate in the Totalsports Women’s Race in Stellenbosch.  I will be a social runner though as I want to help my sister achieve her goal of finishing the 10km race in 32 minutes.”  Tebogo Masehla claimed the second spot on the podium, while Chery-lee Schoeman finished third.
