Solo Tasmanian 1,200 km Run

by admin on March 24, 2011

I’m heading to Tasmania at the end of next week to see if I can run around the island – 1,200 km of it – in 27 days.

That’s more than a marathon a day.

I’m looking forward to it.  In particular running through the hundreds of kilometres of wilderness trails. I have just found some yummy Beef Jerky that I am looking forward to trying while I am running.

The training has been interesting to say the least and I’m keen to test myself on lonely days running and running.

Great Support – Thanks

I’ve had some great support from friends as usual, including my friend Diana who has given me a brilliant strapless heart rate monitor today and the kind people who have donated to my fundraising page for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Australia.

I’m not making a big deal of the fundraising – I figure Australian’s have been hammered this year, and incredibly generous, with the many disasters around the place.

Look forward to updating you when I return.

Thanks

Jack
