Quick as Thieves

I'm running to fundraise for the Fred Hollows Foundation

4:30am starts are a sinch compared to what people who can’t see have to deal with every day.

Currently 43 million people around the world are blind but 9 out of 10 don't have to be!

A simple procedure costing as little as $25 in most developing countries can restore their sight and change their lives and the lives of their families and communities for ever!

I run at the Quick As Thieves event with Mike Toner on 25th November and together we raise money for The Fred Hollows Foundation so they are able to continue train and empower local eye doctors, nurses and health workers and create a sustainable system of care in the communities that need our help the most.

Their work  has a very clear purpose: to make sure everyone, whether they’re rich or poor, has access to high quality, affordable eye health as we enjoy right here in this country.

Thank you for your support 

My Updates

Where I’m at

In 2014 I ran my first ever marathon (it ended up being 45k), I was 32 and thought: Awesome, I’m going to do more of these.

Fast forward over 7 years and my current tally for marathons stands at exactly ONE. That’s right, none since my bold declaration.

So when my mate Russ Macumber messaged me earlier this year and asked if I wanted to get involved with a fundraiser this year and run a marathon I was keen. Then he told me that they’re also offering up a 65k event and I figured ‘why not’.

For the last 3 years I’ve been in the gym, doing more high intensity training as opposed to anything cardio related. I’ve always loved running but it’s hard in a busy life to build in when you can fit a run in. I work two jobs, run a small business and own a farm. So there’s loads happening. But I also want to be fit, I don’t like a life that’s all coffee meetings, travel and sitting in front of the computer (that was the last 7 years). So I made the choice and I decided that I’d just start going to bed earlier and getting up earlier.

My alarm has been going off at 4:30 3-4 times a week for the last 10 weeks as I’ve built my running base back up. I feel great again and really pumped to start running longer distances to be prepared for the 65ks in November. Knowing that the training isn’t about me but as a small little effort to help a bigger cause is what drives me to get throw my legs out of bed when the call of the pillow is so strong. It’s not enticing to get up when it’s zero degrees, dark and wet. But knowing there’s a running community out there to go and meet makes it possible.

So if you can spare any money at all to help what the good people at Fred Hollows foundation do, I’d be forever grateful.
