My target 42 kms

I’m taking part in the Premmie Marathon Challenge

I am a premmie myself born 6 weeks early as a triplet with my brother and sister.

In recent years my nieces came earthside earlier than expected, Lilah the energetic pocketful of sunshine was born at 27 weeks 5 years ago, and this year in February Mahlia at 24 weeks, Mahlia has needed much more care, I have been lucky enough to have a short burst of cuddles before she was admitted back into hospital for complications she has been a little fighter smashing every challenge, we hope our little ninja will be home by Christmas.

Please help us raise much needed funds for hospitals to receive life-saving equipment.

42km in a day done and dusted

I set myself a challenge to complete 42km in a day, I set my sights on walking the coast to vines from Marino Rocks to Wilunga which was 38km and I was determined to keep going at the end towards Roger and Danis house in Aldinga until I hit 42km mark.

Friday was going to be 18, overcast & no rain,  perfect! After going to bed at midnight I  woke up at 5am and heading out the door within 30 mins to catch the train to Marino Rocks. After scoffing my breakfast on the train and downing a red bull my walk started from the station at 6am as the sun rose. 

The walk for the first 30km was quite lack lustre cruising along a paved bike path behind houses and along the express way due to an accidental detour. 
Afew nice spots along the Onkaparinga River it was into the vines that there were some pretty views of the hills in the distance over the vineyards which boosted morale a this is where my legs began to ache, the first 30km were cruisy, the last 12 my legs got heavier and heavier

With the accidental detour off course getting back on track I ended up making up the extra 4km and finished at 42.3km when I got to Wilunga Rose Garden where I was grateful to get a ride from Roger and Lilah,  I don't think I would have made it to Aldinga... by the time I got to the train station to head home I was walking like a T-Rex

I'm really proud of this achievement as it's the furthest I've walked in 1 day,  hats off to those able to run this far!!

First km down

I'm not a runner but I chose to run my first km round the block,  I paused to momentarily walk and catch my breath every 300m as my lungs were burning, but I did it!!
Funny how I can walk all day but can't run 1k, let's see if I can get around the block with no rests by the end of the month!!
Mahlia and Lilah are pushing many of their loved ones out of their comfort zones.

Thank you to my Sponsors
