Running On...

You may be well aware already that I am preparing to run my first Half-marathon in just over 2 weeks time - the Blackmores Sydney Half-Marathon. Since I only started running in January this year this is an exciting venture for me. My preparations have been going well. I can now confidently cover the distance of 21.1km, have a relatively good understanding of how to balance my energy intake and Blood Sugar Levels (BSL) and have in recent weeks begun to grasp what I need to do to pace myself well through the distance.

The other thing I'm really excited about is the fact that I'm over half-way to my fundraising goal of $2000. As I write my total raised so far is $1100.00, which is fantastic. The funds raised go to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation; a cause I'm supporting because a cure for diabetes is very important to me personally, and I support research in general as an important pursuit of humanity.

If you're able to help me reach my target of $2000 I would really appreciate you following this link to donate. Donations are tax deductible and a receipt will be immediately available to you.
