On the Bloody Long Walk & Four Little Rockstars

I’m getting ready to pull out my hiking boots again. It’s been two years since I trained for the 100km Oxfam Trailwalker with a group of friends. We raised a lot of money for Oxfam & had a whole heap of fun along the way. Our next challenge is the The Bloody Long Walk which is a 35km walk in September. The event raises funds to support people living with mitochondrial disease.

Training for the Oxfam Trailwalker, 2017

On Friday night our team met at the Dandaragan Club armed with our training programs, diaries & monthly planners. Given that we have previously trained for a 100km event, we are feeling quietly confident that we can handle 35km once we’ve gotten back into some good training.  Training walks have been planned for the next few months, scheduled around hockey, golf, football, birthdays, school holidays etc…  so that by the time that the event comes around in September we will be prepared & ready to go.

I absolutely can not wait to get out there & start walking again! If you’re interested in the event then check out the website for The Bloody Long Walk.

My Saturday was spent working in the morning & then attending the Moora School of Music Concert in the afternoon. There were some fantastic performances by our local young musicians, including four of my own little Piano Rockstars who totally nailed their piano pieces.

Emily, Georgie, Gus & Hayley I am so very proud of you all.

In other news, there are only two more sleeps until Frida will be back home with me in Moora. Thank you to everyone who has asked about her. Her paw has healed up nicely & she is ready to be scampering around muddy paddocks once again but this time with waterproof/prickle proof booties. It will be good to have her home – the clinic has seemed a bit empty without her. Have a great week everyone! ~ Love Allie X
