My Activity Tracking


My target 300kms

Its a wrap!

Hello All,

Sorry its been a few days, we had a couple of family commitments & then I was whisked away to Boomerang Beach with a couple of girl friends for some mush needed R & R.

Incase you weren't able to work out what our little surprise was, I decided with only a couple of days to go that I would raise the activity goal to at least 400km in the month just to show my appreciation to all of you that have been on this journey with me & have shown your support in one way or another.

So thankyou to all the family & friends who walked, jogged or rode their bike along with us. We managed to complete a massive 409km. Most of you would of always of known me as quite a strong determined individual that likes to tackle things head on & rises to a challenge, well that has & will not change!

I've been told that my Stride4Stroke link remains active until the end of the year so if you haven't had a chance yet & were wanting to donate, please feel free & you can of course share it amoungst your own family & friends.

So thankyou again to everyone that has supported me & my partner in crime. We've had a lot of fun over the past month & I get the sense there will be more fun to be had! I hope you all have a Merry Christmas & a safe, happy New Year!

N & Jaz xx

Thanks to the rain I’ll be here getting my 10km done here this morning!

Gotta get it done before Speech Therapy....

Day 24 & 25 - 24-25/11

So today I had the last Parkrun for the month of November, I had an extra teaspoon of sugar in my cup of tea & I think it paid off. Unofficially I beat my PB by just over a minute!

The rest of the time was spent hanging out with a good mate of mine who had been stranded due to his flight home being cancelled! His families pain was my gain. Coffee, surf, dinner & outdoor fire made an awesome time of catching up! It was great to see you TL & KR look forward to seeing you & your little people next visit!



Day 19 - 19/11/18 - 23/11/18



Another massive thankyou to everyone that has supported, donated & tagged along for the journey so far 

And thankyou to the lovely ladies at Stride4Stroke that helped me to remove the extra 0s I accidentally added to Saturday’s tally... Ooop’s

Day 18 - 18/11/18

What a fantastic Day!

So a girlfriend of mine organised a walk today for the Novemeber Stride4Stroke. The walk was a walk around the Lake followed by brunch at a Cafe overlooking the Lake. We managed to get 18 of us there as well as some of our fury four legged friends..... It was such a great way to start the day & I wanted to thank each & everyone of them for coming along! I'm sorry we didn't get a photos of us all before some of us left..... Feel free to send me a selfie & I can add you in :)

I was then dropped off at the beach to where the family & anoher family were enjoying a surf & lying around at the beach. I can't tell you how many people stop to talk to Jazy:)

Then we enjoyed pies & sausage rolls before a stroll at the local markets. Then home so my daughter & her friend could get some cooking done!

We are off to the local Pizza joint for dinner with our mates, so I'll enter my distance once the day is done! 


Day 16 & 17 - 16/11 & 17/11/18

Come on mum, lets get going...... Look out beach, here we come!


Oh yeah! FYI I didn't do 1000km, I accidently added too many 0's :/

Day 15 - 15/11/18

Today I got to meet up with a friend who has been traveling around working at the Commonwealth Games, European Championships 2018 & the Invictus Games 2018. It was wonderful catching up, lucky I had committed to 10km a day, other wise there wouldn't of been enough time to catch up :)

Day 14 - 14/11/18


Day 13 - 13/11/18

SO the day has arrived, my friend & I are heading into collect our works of art!!!! Then off to IKEA, the only place I know where you can actually walk 10km without actually leaving the store!


Mission accomplished!

Day 11 & 12 - 11/11-12/11

Another couple of lazy days.....Coastal walks for me & my girl! This is how we feel at the end of most days!


Day 10 - 10/11/18

Today is a fun day & a day I've been looking forward to.

Two of my good mates & their families are coming over so we've been up early to get our kilometers done before a lazy afternoon hanging out with good friends. A walk around the lake did the trick!

Day 7,8,9 - 7/11-9/11

So i've been abit lazy with my blog, but not me walking. These days were pretty much walking the lake, the beach & the headland with Jaz! Her foot is on the mend & she is back in action.....

Day 6 - 6/11/18

Tuesday's I have a class that a good mate of mine takes me too. It's a place where I get to practice some of my rehab in a creative way. But when I get home I know someone who will definately want to get out & about. I think a walk around our beautiful picturesq golf course could be in order.


Day 5 - 5/1/18

So today I am a little bit excited. I'm going to attempt an excursion by myself into the city to have lunch with one of my besties! So should definatly get my 10kms in today! Look forward to see you soon SH xxxxx x

Day 4 - 04/11/18

So it's been a busy few days so today we are just taking it easy today. Managed to fit in a few laps of the beach while the family, Jaz included were swimming.

Day 3 - 3/11/18

A very good friend of mine recommended Parkrun Australia events. They are open to everyone, free and are safe and easy to take part in. I have decided to complete a parkrun each Saturday in the month of November. Today was a hot one but a good way to log up the kilometers early and even though its called the parkrun, you don't have to run!

Day 2 - 2/11/18

So today is a hot one, it’s just down to a local gym & onto a treadmill for today’s walk! My side kick Jaz is still out of action! But 10km I will walk!!

Day 1 - 1/11/18

Well I kicked off my month with a visit to see Sculptures by the Sea, Bondi with my gorgeous sister-in-law. Unfortunately my side kick Jaz was unable to make this walk due to a little accident, so she had to sit this one out!

Bondi was at its best, a chance run in with Jethro from Bondi Rescue where my sister-in-law returned his stray Football was quite the buzz when retelling the story to the kids that evening...

All in all a beautiful day, 10km done & dusted!!

I am taking part in the Stroke Foundation’s Stride4Stroke to help Fight Stroke!

Hey everyone, did you know that 1 in 6 people will have a stroke in their lifetime. That's not a statisitc I was familiar with until recently. The reason being that I unfortunatley had two strokes......

Stroke attacks the brain which is the human control centre, changing a perons life in an instant as well as those around them. The impact of stroke can be devastating for the individual and their family. 

So, I was hoping you might be able to help me raise money to help Fight Stroke. It’s going to be a challenge, but I'm up for it!

Please donate, support &/or join me throughout November while I make a committment to walk at least 10km a day with my side kick Jaz!

Your donation will help the Stroke Foundation support those affected right now and fund research to help prevent stroke, save lives and enhance recovery. 

Thank you so much, Nx

Thank you to my Sponsors
