I am training with Can Too for the Great Ocean Road Marathon!

Thankyou for checking out my page!

Can Too is a terrific organisation that supports individual early stage cancer research grants through the Cure Cancer Australia Foundation and the Cancer Council of NSW. Cure Cancer Australia identifies the research that they believe provides the best possible chance of finding a cure. Since 2005 Can Too has supported 145 research grants in a total sum of almost $17.5 million.

I have very much enjoyed the training program so far. The Group is very well organised. We have a great coach and the training program is well thought out. We have a long run every Saturday and during the week we have shorter programs – usually based around Kirribilli. I have learned a lot about the importance of hydration and nutrition during a long run and I have seen parts of Sydney which I would not otherwise have seen. Please feel free to look through my Gallery for some training snaps!

We now have one more long run of 38k next Saturday and then we "taper off" for the main event.

I really appreciate the support I have received so far and I look forward to any support you may be able to offer.

Hopefully I will be able to report on a good outcome after 21 May!

Here is a link to the complete list of research grants funded by the Can Too Foundation.   http://www.cantoo.org.au/about/our-researchers

So far. So good.

So far. So good.

On Easter Saturday I managed to complete 38K although I went a little over the recommended "turnaround" time from the coach. Luckily I was doing the run up at Scone and so coach Simone was not there at the 2 hour 20 minute mark to send me home. I also had a little mishap when at the 15k mark, as I was watching a car turn onto the Belltrees Road from the Stewart's Brook Road, I stepped off the bitumen and "knuckled over" on my ankle on the lip of the bitumen. I endeavoured to spring to my feet in order to show the driver of the car that no harm was done and then continued on my way although it was a little painful for the next few kilometres. Luckily, just after I had reached the 19k mark and had turned around I saw a familiar car approaching and it was my daughter Juliet and friend Eddy with a very welcome  drink of water.

I waved goodbye to them and continued back home and had just crossed the Hunter River when another familiar car approached bearing my daughter Hattie and three friends. They also came with the gift of water and in their running shoes and they accompanied me up the "Belltrees Hill" after which it was pretty much downhill and flat all the way home. A hearty breakfast awaited.

The ankle seem to be coming along well and I'm looking forward to the next and last 38k this weekend – after which we begin our "taper".

I am really grateful to all those who have supported me in this endeavour and I look forward to hopefully being able to give a favourable report after 21 May.
