How is training going!?

This is what happens when you go for a run without considering your lack of fitness and the weather conditions. Saturday was hot. Too hot to run at 3pm. 

I'm running for Callen

What a year it has been. 

All people in the world are facing challenges and feeling out of place in the world. Its a world that is unfamiliar to us all, the isolation, restrictions and lack of social interactions. What if this was not an unusual year for you? What it is was more normal than not? What if the current circumstances the world finds itself in just intensifies those things for you? 

In COVID times, our most vulnerable people who struggle to participate in our community without support, are having to fight even harder.

I get to see that every day at home. And worse, in the last year I have been less patient and supportive because of the additional pressures. 

So despite not having run at all since I ran the half marathon 2 years ago to raise money for Autism, I have decided to sign up for this challenge and I will run for Callen and all the people who have fought hard this year with less support. 

I’m running for autism to help create a world where no-one on the autism spectrum is left behind. 

I've set my challenge of running 21kms over the 7 days between Sunday 31st October - 7th November, while raising much needed funds to support people on the autism spectrum.

People on the spectrum see, hear, feel and experience the world differently. For many, simply coping with the everyday can lead to confusion, anxiety and isolation.

By coming together and taking action, we can help provide opportunities for people on the autism spectrum to participate, engage and thrive in the world around them.

Help make my run challenge count and show your support by donating today!
