Hi Travis, Here is my Run Down Under story, it’s a bit emotional and I actually wrote this for my own personal reasons. I’m not sure if it’s what...
Nery Lewis this morning became finisher number 33 at parkrun Australia. A few weeks back when I asked Nerys about her impending finish she told me: I’m just planning to keep walking until I have finished, and am really happy with a low key finish. Des has let me know that he will be happy to meet up for the last few km if we can make it happen" (which he did)! It has been so important for me to be a part of Run Down Under. I am a carer for both parents who have dementia as well as a bunch of physical ailments, and when I do work, I work with kids from backgrounds of family violence and homelessness. So plenty of stress all around! Run Down Under has kept me moving, and I am a much healthier, more patient person than I would be without it. I am so grateful that you allow walkers to be part of it. I had started running the year before I found you, but injured my foot just after joining and was really bummed until I realised that I could walk. I have always enjoyed walking, and have really stepped things up, especially as a result of taking part in Run Against Violence last year. I would never have thought I could sustain walking 20km a day for almost 20 days – and felt so good as a result. Looking forward to going around Australia again once this map is finished. Thanks for all that you do to make it possible.
