At last I have found a big goal! As you all know I’ve been struggling for a while now to find a goal for 2017 that is big enough to get me excited and inspire me to get out of bed early in the mornings to exercise.
I had many ideas of events that would be great to do, but not knowing anyone who would like to do them with me.
Until a few days ago, when I casually mentioned to a few of my fit friends that I was looking to get together a team of 4 for COASTREK. It was just conversation, as I really didn’t expect any interest. Before you could say “Coastrek” again we had formed a team, held our first team meeting, and come up with a team name…. and even registered.
It is now official. We are team “NO BOUNCE HERE”. The name came about as one of our members is an Intimo rep and we are hoping that they will sponsor us. I wear their fantastic sports bras every day. Definitely no bounce here!
Our team are myself, Yvonne, Helen and Leanne. We will have our first official training session very soon, and of course, an official photo will be taken. Watch out for it!
Coastrek is a 30k team trekking challenge along the beautiful Mornington Peninsula, held on May 26 2017. The event is a fundraiser for The Fred Hollows Foundation, a great cause. Many people in disadvantaged countries are needlessly blind and sight can be restored for just $25. I am planning on a few fundraising activities over the next few months to raise money to help this cause.
