I’m taking action for the end of hunger!
Completing a marathon has always been one of those things I've wanted to do. There has been a small problem though... I don't like running. Yip. I really don't like running - I ache, I moan, it's hard. But then so is a lot of stuff I’m taking on right now. It's uncomfortable, and running is just another one of those things that I'm getting better at being uncomfortable with. What I have come to love though, is seeing what I'm capable of.
Through training I've moved from not being able to run 1km in mid 2017, to taking on my first (and possibly my only) marathon in less than two weeks’ time! Furthermore, it's not a road marathon but a trail marathon in the mountains around Queenstown.Whaaaaat?!
And the best part is I’ve partnered with some really cool people to do it with who have made training all the more fun. I've also spent time outdoors, running on trails in this stunning country I call home and getting connected to nature again.
So whilst I’m still not 'feeling' totally ready, I’m going to give it a go anyway because well, why not. That's what we're here for right, doing mad and amazing stuff that connects us to what it means to be alive.
As I’m challenging myself, I'd love you to support me and the incredible work of The Hunger Project in our mission for a world free from hunger.
Why? Because hunger doesn’t need to exist in the world and I believe that a
world free from hunger works for us all. Together, we can end hunger in our generation.
Thanks for your support.
