At average walking pace, I walked 12.8km around the Melbournian docklands. Just made it in under 2.5 hours – didn’t think I could do it! Especially at the 7km mark after we came off the freeway bridge, I was hot, dehydrated, and had a stitch. Thoughts of “why am i doing this, kill me now” were squashed when I looked up and saw the Royal Childrens hospital.

It became apparent quite quickly in mind, that if all those tiny humans can fight there respective illnesses and not give, I can’t and won’t give up. So with 3km left I put a rocket in my heels and slowly descended Parkville.
