Not many people understand why I participated in the Melbourne Marathon in 2013. Sometimes I even struggle to explain to people who ask me today. It is a bit cliche but it has been said and that running a marathon will change your life. It changed mine because I wanted it to. Its not to say my life was bad at the time, but there things I was unhappy with.
Signing up was the easy part, but the training for the big day was a challenge in itself. Stupidity you might say, but it felt good spending those hours on the track and pushing my limits while I thought about life and concentrated on all the good things I had. The completion of the Marathon on October 13 meant the completion of my ‘7 Pounds’ commitment which I made, and this told me I could achieve anything I set my mind to doing.
