Last year, I ran and walked 3,879.3 km, about 2,410 miles. This is the equivalent of walking/running from:
Madrid to Paris to Istanbul
Sydney Circular Quay to Wollongong to Canberra to Adelaide’s Henley Beach to Perth’s City Beach
Singapore to Bangkok to Hanoi to Yulan
I walked and ran across cities, parks, beaches, forests and mountains. With friends. With family. With strangers. And alone. In 17 countries. Thanks to my walking and running companions. No wonder, I feel tired at the start of 2023!! I had hoped to get to 4,044 km but I fell a little short. Along the way, thanks to friends across the world, I raised funds for:
Support for isolated individuals
Cancer Research and support
Help restore sight to people with cataracts in developing nations
Projects against family violence
Thank you to everyone who gave and supported for those things.
I can’t work out what goal to make for 2023 or if I just go goalless and see what emerges! What about you? Do you enjoy walking?
