five years

when I headed down to Australind on Friday, when we set up the “Hearts Across Australia” base camp, when I went to the registration desk and got my race bib… I was completely oblivious to an amazing fact.

on the 20th January 2012, exactly 5 years before, I put this site and the Facebook page online (under the name “no more mr fat guy”), I posted the first blog entry, and I publicly committed to changing my life, and becoming capable of completing a marathon…

5 years, 4 marathons, 7 ultra-marathons, a whole heap of trail and road events, and a 5400km crossing of Australia on foot… so much has been achieved in that time, and it is entirely fitting that the 5 year anniversary of the start of this journey has coincided with the start of the next phase.

thankyou everyone who has played a part in this incredible adventure so far, your support, your feedback, your friendships and more… I wonder what the next 5 will bring?
