We did it!

Sunday 10th Oct
Today Michael and I donned our Stroke Foundation singlets and headed out for our races. The last 10 weeks of training have been tough but we gave it our all and both managed to hit PBs.

We would like to extend our deepest thanks and gratitude to all of you that have donated and helped us raise awareness in some way. We are so grateful to have had your support.

Halfway point!

An update from Jess:

Today Michael and I ran the final run of week 4!

We have been following our training plans closely. Weโ€™ve worked through some scary speed runs, a few long weekend runs and lots of recovery runs in between.

We are yet to hear whether the Melbourne Marathon Festival will be postponed or cancelled but we want to assure all of our generous donors that we will go ahead on 10 October regardless.

Getting out for a run is a great way to reduce your risk of stroke and comes with a ton of mental and physical health benefits. You donโ€™t have to be the fastest or fittest, you just have to show up!

Once again, thank you for all your generous donations and support. You are making a huge different to an organisation I have reaped the benefits from firsthand. As always, please familiarise yourself with FAST and share with your friends and family.

Face - check their face. Has their mouth drooped?
Arms - can they lift both arms?
Speech - is their speech slurred? Do they understand you?
Time is critical - if you see any of these signs, call 000 now!

Thank you to my Sponsors
