Day One

Happy to see so many friends and family rock up this morning at the MCG to see the start of the run.️

Especially fellow runners, Lynda, Darren,  Peter, and Duc Do who joined me for a few kms.

7Sunrise was there (cameraman Shannon made me look good on the day, and Billy with the pre-recorded vid), spoke live to Monique and Basil 

Set off at 10 (forgot to do vid or selfie).🥺 Obviously too excited.

Followed the Yarra trail- did some adjustment on the steering and took a wrong turn, going about 4km in the wrong direction.

Back on the right track; every now and then the steering let me down. Teething issues.

Running on foot paths is a pain/traffic lights/pedestrians!🤬

Had a free Maccas

Arrived Punthill Apartments at 5pm; 7 hour day, but 5:45hrs moving. Tweaked buggy and managed to get to bed around 11pm for a 7am alarm.

      Hey Russell
      Thank you, and sorry for the late reply.

    Saw Andre as he just left Surfers Paradise this morning and walked with him as we went through the ‘pit area’ on MacIntosh Island where the V8 Supercars have their races. I was out cycling, went home and caught up with him again, as he neared Helensvale. He was jogging along in a lather of sweat.
    Good luck with your run and keep safe.
