Did you know that three million people in Australia are living with anxiety and depression?

My Story

Training Time

So I thought it was time to really get into training. I realised there was only 4 months left until I have to walk 30km for real. So yesterday I walked 12km from Stirling to Beaumont House. It was a lot of up and down and up and down with rainy weather thrown in to add to the challenge. But I am happy to say that I finished in just over 3hrs. Feeling very accomplished but hats off to the people who walked 26km from Hahndorf. That’s the goal for next year (maybe). Wow, am I feeling my muscles today. Looking forward to soaking in a nice salt bath. 

Another bonus of the walk was having some people who did Coastrek last year tell me that Adelaide Coastrek was much flatter than yesterdays walk. So that’s a bit more promising. 

Thanks again to everyone who has donated so far. I really appreciate it and I know Beyond Blue do as well. 

Keep on walking!!!!
