  • I AM Paul! I AM Walking!

    DSC_9093A special mention to Paul Fairhurst!

    Paul! You were an amazing Fighter and Conqueror today! You completed your first ever 10km!! And without any STOPS!! I know that this is such a HUGE Milestone for you. You just kept making stride after stride count with great purpose and intent. You were a champion throughout the entire 10km course. I know you were relieved with each kilometer marker we pass as that meant that you were getting closer to the finish. You kept your focus on the end and not for one moment did you waver. You are an inspiration to many on and off the course and certainly to individuals with spinal injuries.

    Just so you know. It was truly inspirational and emotional to watch you reach and crossed the finish line. I will be honest, I was fighting back tears as you were approaching the Finish line during your last 50m. Words can not describe how proud I am of you. The joy within me was “bursting out” as I witnessed 1 year 9 months of courage, determination, hard work, perseverance, sweat, grit, and blood (from the occasional falls) take form for you to achieve your goal. I am so happy for you!!

    You have certainly shown that the pure determination of one’s mind and soul can conquer anything! Well Done, Paul!! Hugz! ~ Swee ~

  • Osaka Marathon – Race Expo

    This Sunday is the Osaka Marathon, so today I made my way to the race expo at the INTEX OSAKA to collect my race pack.

    It was a cold and rainy morning but when I reached the race expo, the atmosphere there was energising and the people warm.

    The expo area was huge and the booths were always filled with participants checking out the latest running shoes, running gear, hydration and energy drinks/gel. Really a buzz of activity and lots to entertain all those running the marathon. There was also a huge hall just for local Japanese food! Yummy!

    Spent about 3 hours at the expo, now to rest, carbo load & hydrate for Sunday.

  • Melbourne Marathon 13th October 2013 – Jenny & Karyn

    Jenny & Karyn completed the Melbourne Marathon in fantastic time!

    Jenny finished in 4hr 55mins and in the process smashed her previous best by an hour!

    While for Karyn, it was her FIRST ever marathon and she completed it in 4hr 50mins! Her previous best was a 7+hrs at a 30km race.

    Jenny & Karyn shared that that they had to deal with the elements during the last 7km. Rain started pouring, it was chilly, muscles were starting to cramp… But their grit & determination to finish strong (and under 5hrs) carried them on!

    True mental tenacity!

    Well done ladies!Jenny & Karyn

    Welcome back Sue!
