I love to run to stay fit and happy, running gives me the space and time to think, plan and reflect on life.

I like to mix up my training: Zumba, Aerobics, Yoga, cycling and gym workouts. I am trying to improve my times after running five half marathons, I am determined to run sub 1:50.

Running my first marathon, the Melbourne Marathon on October 13, was the most amazing experience. Something I would not have dreamed about attempting before joining Tribesports, and being inspired and encouraged by some very special people!

Staying in town overnight to run the Tan, Alyssa's (13) longest run to date, she smashed the hills. Running with my daughter is so enjoyable and rewarding :)

Jane H Go the Extra Mile 50k Endurance Walk Challenge

Contributorgold Jane H Latest blog entry: https://www.gotheextramile.com.au/Vic/teampage.asp?TeamID=2662
Setting off an hour earlier we met at the finish line in Ferny Creek at 8:30am, ready to tackle sections 2-4. We knew this was going to be harder than last Tuesday; the elevation graphs are testament to that.

Leaving a car at Bayswater Park, we hit the track by 9am. This section is relatively easy to walk, the aim is to cover it as quickly as possible, but conserve energy for the hilly sections.

Crossing Liverpool Rd wistfully looking back towards home, we headed for the hills, making our way towards Doongalla Station for a bite to eat. Section 3 tested us today. We ironed out some glitches in our navigation and hiked some parts of the course for the first time. Interestingly, we had to cross a creek and face the two menacing dogs that have become folklore.

The 1000 steps seemed more challenging than ever today. I put this down to the fact that we had 24k on the Garmin already, our legs were hurting, and we knew we still had another 12k to walk. In addition, blisters had to be managed. But, this is a test of endurance, and that we have in abundance.

Up and over the mountain, trudging along lost in my thoughts, I was surprised to see a flash of white against the green backdrop. It was a pair of white deer, quite tame, peering out from behind the protection of the forest. For me this was the highlight of the day's hiking, that surreal moment that catches your breath.

It was almost dark by the time we reached the car at @6:15pm, satisfied that we hadn’t taken any shortcuts, and that we had achieved/smashed another training goal.

Expect to see a kangaroo, wallaby or even a koala, but a white deer in the forest in Australia?

I wasn't sure if I told you about it. It was fabulous. A truly perfect day. Saw two deers walking down the trail towards us and a snake. Not sure if I will be able to find that darn snake in the pic. Hard to see on the camera, but he was there rustling into the leaves and branches:) I am going to post them over on the Women on the Run Tribe wall as soon as I find the "thingy" (technical term there!)

Cool! My deer pic is a little blurry because I can't move and take a pic at the same time:)
