I had planned to punching out a quick 6.5km dash back home after my nephew's party on Saturday night, but I forgot my shoes, probably subconsciously, so I didn't get the run in on Saturday that I needed to try and play catch up with the distances.
During one of the wake ups of new kid, I checked my phone, saw a donation and thought it was a dream, but no it was real, I had received the most generous donation from a genuinely kind-hearted kooky old digger adding a lot of kilometres to my total. For many, many reasons, he is really a beautiful human.
This is one of the special things about raising funds for different charities, knowing how generous everyone is throughout the year for many different and very worthy charities, as well as continually supporting Beyond Blue, I am still very humbled by the generosity that this place shows. There are things that we are dealing with in our own lives, some big, some small, there are some people dealing with coming second on a countback again, but still fronting up and being a real winner.
Thank you to all who have donated so far, I am genuinely humbled and blown away that it will be likely that I will reach my target before half way through the month. Thank you. This does then mean that I was certified crazy to expect to be able to run the distances that I thought I could do. It will be tough from here, my hips and knees hurt and I know I have a long, long way to go, but by jingoes I am going to red hot crack.
