FOR OUR CHALLENGE

May 30 Walk

Although it was light, the rain started within minutes of the beginning of this walk. Despite this I decided to press on to Frankston, specifically 'Waves' restaurant on the beach. As this is probably the last walk for the challenge, I rewarded myself with a coffee and muffin from Maccas and continued on my way. Some more sightseeing included Kananook Creek, the Dandelion at Peninsula Link and Little Boggy Creek behind my house. It's been a wonderful challenge for me, now completing more than 250kms while raising money for this very worthy cause.

May 29 Walk

This morning was overcast and very chilly when I started walking, but by the time I was one third the way in on my walk the sun started to make an appearance. It's almost the end of May and I've completed over 220km. I feel fit and have enjoyed getting out into the fresh air. The walks have also given me the opportunity to see things in my neighbourhood and beyond that I would never notice if I'd been driving. Glad to have seen my world from this different perspective. 😌 πŸ™Œ

May 27 Walk

A chilly, but beautiful sunny morning. Hubby and I had a walking date down to Frankston Pier and back again. Needless to say I was quite sore in the lower back, hips and legs for the walk back after doing 16km last night as well. Somewhere along Beach Street I hit the 200km mark of the total of accumulated May kms. I've doubled down on my km commitment. Really happy with what I've achieved. 😁

May 26 Walk

Late home from work. dark and cold. πŸ₯Ά A quick dinner then on the tready for the kms in front of the TV πŸ“Ί to pass the time.

May 23 Walk

A beautiful afternoon for a walk. This time I stayed in Langwarrin. I decided to go through the Langwarrin Flora & Fauna reserve.

May 22 Walk

A very chilly day for walking, but no excuse to hide from a good walk. Coat on and off I went, all the way to Oliver's Hill Lookout and back again.

May 21 Walk

A wet start to the day, but I still managed to squeeze in a quick 5kms once the sun came out. Then off to Alba Hot Springs for a soak and a rub. πŸ˜ŽπŸ’†β€β™€οΈ

May 15 Walk

I finally got my target. 124.92km in the bank. Over 27km today to get me over the line. Feet and hips are sore, but I feel mentally good that I was able to walk that far. I'll keep going until the end of May just to see how far I get. 😁

May 12 Walk

Home from work, dinner, then a 6km walk on the treadmill. Almost hit my 100km target.

May 9 Walk

More unsettled weather today. Another day in the treadmill. Another 15kms. Bigger strides today, less steps. must be getting fitter. πŸ˜„

May 8 Walk

Too cold, wet and unpredictable to pound the pavement, so tready it was.... and 'Silverwater' on Netfix to pass the time. Another 15km done βœ”οΈ 😁

May 6 Walk

A bit chilly today. Wind breaker πŸ§₯, cap 🧒 and sunnies 😎 on anyway to get those kms done. Lucky for me the dark clouds 🌧 were around me, not over me.

May 5 Walk

Another day at work meant another evening on the treadmill. Still managed 5km. Slowly chipping away at it.

May 4 Walk

It was a work day and an after hours class for me with no chance to walk the streets. ... so the 'tready' was a good way to cover off some kms. Albeit quite late I managed another 5kms and over 5000 steps. Routine is good for me. πŸ™‚πŸšΆπŸ½β€β™€οΈ

May 2 walk

Decided to just walk and see where I ended up. ...Langwarrin (home) to Frankston pier and back again. 4 hours 8 minutes

The First Walk

Decided that I would try to knock over a many kms as possible straight away. I surprised myself. I know if I can do the big walks on my days off I will surely get the 100kms done by the end of May. Fingers crossed 🀞 the weather just has to be nice to me.

Support our challenge to leave MS behind!

We are taking part in The May 50K challenge this May to raise funds for life-changing research into multiple sclerosis!

MS strikes young people in the prime of their lives. The average age of diagnosis is only 30 years old, and there is no known cure.

Please make a donation and support our challenge to leave MS where it belongs, behind us.

Your donation will support research into the prevention, treatment and finding a cure for multiple sclerosis to change lives.

Thank you!
