My go-to running motivational videos...

Here are some of my go-to running youtube videos that will get you/keep you inspired to run and smash out those running goals.

Top of my list is none other than the brave hearts Ryan Sandes and Ryno Griesel.

The Fastest Way To Cross The Himalayas | Lessons From The Edge Ryan Sandes and Ryno Griesel are always the top on my list. Creates some feel-good moments for me as a South African. Smashing out the 1504km run across the Great Himalaya Trail is always incredible to watch. This was a massive effort, overcoming a number of challenges including frostbite, injury and sleep deprivation to complete this journey.
