For Beyond Blue

I’ve created this page to make a difference in the lives of people affected by anxiety, depression and suicide. I want to reduce the stigma and break down the barriers that prevent people from speaking up and reaching out. Beyond Blue is here for everyone in Australia – at work, home, school, online and in communities across the country. Support me now in my participation at Blackmores Sydney Running Festival to help all Australians achieve their best possible mental health.

29km this morning and I had a sore Achilles after it. It is about time to retire my ASICS running shoes and go back to Saucony’s, so I bought a new pair this afternoon. I also did a reasonably quick 8km on Thursday afternoon, and 8.2km at 20/20 on Tuesday night. At 20/20 I run with a group, and the aim is to run for 20 minutes in one direction around the river, and then try to get back in less than 20 minutes. You also try to go further each week. When you run the second half of a run quicker than the first half it is called a negative split.
