So I’m now officially at the half-way point of my #Countdownto50. Holy! That came around much more quickly than I realised. We all say that though don’t we?
This time last Sunday I completed my very first run of 5 kilometres at the University of Queensland Twilight Run. I was running as part of the #ISeeDeadlyPeople team with some of the other Brisbane Deadly Runners crew.
I grew up with a very practical Mum – loving, caring, hardworking, realistic, no frills. I don’t really remember her as someone who would wear a lot of make-up or jewellery. She was a school cleaner for most of my childhood so she spent most of the time in ‘serviceable’ (her words) clothes.
My first trip to Lamington National Park was a nice adventure and I racked up a bit of a walking milestone – a walk over 15k.
It’s week 2 on the Deadly Runners program. Last week was 60secs run + 90secs walk x 8. And this week it’s 90secs run + 120secs walk x 6.
I’ve just returned from a quick trip to Adelaide in South Australia. My first time to Adelaide and my first trip ever to SA. The taxi driver I spoke to was stunned that I’d never been to Adelaide before. “It must not be a good place” if I’d never been before? I tried to explain to him that Australia is very large and it’s common that people do not get to every state in their lifetimes.
This month I turned 48. Holy crap!
That means I’ll be 50 in 24 months. Holy holy crap!
