New York Marathon 2019

NEW YORK NEW YORK - HERE WE COME...

New Yorck City is getting closer... sometimes it feels like we are running towards it!:

Sat 19OCT19: now its all downhill to New York - runners call it a "taper" but I call it "the descent" to New York starting with 16km of hills...

Sat 12OCT19: my best ever peak of a mighty 37km - only 5km short of the golden pize but it is another world after 35km - every km is "sooo long" !!!

Sat 5OCT19: what a day - more like a swim through 35km of downpour rain over the Harbour Bridge and Anzac Bridge...

Sat 28SEP19: completed a 19km "recovery" run...

Mon 23SEP19: Beat leg pain on Sat 21SEP to run a mighty 33km!!!

Sat 14SEP19: personal best distance of 31km!!!

Sat 7SEP19: "recovery" day of 18km

Sat 31AUG19 we completed 27km

Sat 24AUG19 we ran 24km

Sat 17AUG19 we ran 14km with hills

Sat 10AUG19 completed a half-marathon = 21.1km

I'm supporting cancer research and prevention with Can Too Foundation.

1 in 3 women and 1 in 2 men will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. This means that potentially someone we love may have to battle cancer, and that’s a statistic that needs to change.

So I asked myself, “what can I do to help?” That’s where the Can Too Foundation came in! Can Too provide professionally coached training programs for participants – of any fitness level – to run, swim and cycle their way to a healthier lifestyle and a cancer-free world.

In return, I am raising valuable funds that go towards innovation in the prevention, care, and control of cancer. Since 2005, Can Too Foundation have trained over 15,000 participants, raised over $21,000,000 to invest in 168 one-year cancer research grants.

It would be fantastic if you could sponsor me, or even better join me in a program!

Thank you for your support!

Thank you to my Sponsors
