My Activity Tracking


My target 400 kms

This October, I'll be running 400km to raise awareness on suicide & help support people in Australia living with mental illness. 8 people die from suicide every day in Australia & this number has significantly increased with the current pandemic.

Did you know that 1 in 5 people experience symptoms of mental illness each year?

In fact, every day in Australia, 8 people will die from suicide.

Mental illness can be debilitating and can have a devastating impact on not only those living with it, but those around them. 

This October, I’ll be walking to make a difference to the lives of people touched by mental illness and suicide!

I'm fundraising to raise money for life-changing research into treatment and prevention of mental illness, as well as vital support services. 

It would mean so much to me if you'd support my walk this October.

Chasing a clear break ☔️

Saturday 24th Oct
Late afternoon run today. Chasing a break from the rain. Finally got there....x

Hit the wall

Thursday 22nd Oct
Woke up tired & fatigued with no energy this morning. Was hoping the cold morning air & movement would stir things up until the the runners high kicked in, but it didn’t come..

Today’s run was very challenging for me. I struggled mentally, physically & emotionally and felt so defeated, especially after yesterday’s high. 

Taking a rest day tomorrow...
