Thought i would shoot off a quick blog before heading out for a training run with a fellow Atacama 2010 competitor- Daniel. Deposit for rego has been paid, research into equipment has begun and training is underway. Essentially this means there is no turning back. Pretty excited for what i imagine will be an epic adventure.
Over the next two months i will be doing the Sydney half marathon & the Melbourne Marathon. Contemplating at this stage if i will run the Melbourne Marathon with a backpack as it would be a good chance to get closely acquainted with my backpack. Considering i am just under 5 foot tall i think carrying approx 9kg of weight on my back will be a huge challenge for me.
Anyway better head off to run with the kangaroos around Lysterfield Lake.
