Big Red Run Experience

What an experience! Part of the reason I did this was to show my daughter that she can do anything she puts her mind to. She lives with type 1 diabetes and she's often said to me "I can't do that because I have type 1" I don't have type 1 but BRR training almost broke me. I was convinced I was not cut out for it. My only thought was that she has type 1 for the rest of her life, she can't give up... so i kept on training, I didn't give up. I ran the BRR for her. To show her that no matter what if you put your mind to it you can do anything and to never give up. It's amazing what the body and the mind can do when it's has to. I've even proven that to myself. One day she will understand the enormity of it all. A week I'll never forget, my sister Tracy, David, the people we met... the Simpson Desert, Birdsville.... just awesome!
