The Biggest Challenge So Far

I originally entered this event in February after being diagnosed with breast cancer in January. It was planned for May and I thought it would be a good goal to help me through my treatment plan. 
Two things then happened. The event was postponed because of Coronavirus and my treatment plan was extended with a 16 week course of chemotherapy.
I have done a few long distance challenges in my life but the chemotherapy has been the biggest and I have needed to draw on tactics previously used in training to get me through.
I still have some treatment left but now need to get my anaemic bottom off the sofa and get going so need a goal to spur me on.
The fund raising is for cancer research but also dedicated to the amazing breast care and oncology nurses who have been the mainstay of my treatment

My Updates


Saw a post on Perkins saying their aim is is to prevent breast cancer deaths by 2030. What an amazing aim! But if you think about the progress with cervical cancer in the last few decades maybe it is possible. The treatment I have had over the last few months has blown me away. The progress with symptom control and the amazing technology involved with radiotherapy just mind boggling. Would just be great for our daughters generation if this progress was made!

Getting there

Well crash course training going on at the moment as anaemia sapped me a bit then tropical weather in Broome made long walks tricky.
But back on track now. Started radiotherapy last week and did 53 km on top of that as well as work so know I can do 35km in 1 week..
But working towards 35km on Saturday 26th..
Did 20km yesterday so think is possible now.....
