Crazy Hair Day

So I can tell you from experience that it is NOT a great choice to go for a 27k run when coming down with a head cold…! It has taken me a good two weeks to get over it and I’m only just starting to get better.. Even thought I had lost my running mojo there for a while……!! Shocking… but back into it now and have spent the last couple of days in the gym doing body combat and hill/interval training on the treadmill. I’m not a big fan of the treadmill but for hill and interval training it is great and I’m definitely pushing myself a lot more that if I was to do the same outside…
It was crazy hair day today at school to raise awareness and important funds for the Leukemia Foundation. Such a great thing and the kids are loved it! Nathan had blue spiky hair and Cayla had some blue stripes and pink long hair clips thingys. All kids brought in a gold coin donation. It would be great to do something similar for cerebral palsy, maybe a colourful shoe day where all the kids are doing a walk/run or an obstacle course at school to raise awareness and funds for The Centre for Cerebral Palsy (TCCP). Cerebral palsy is the most common physical childhood disability in the world. It is a permanent physical condition that affects movement and often these kids can’t walk or run very well or at all. Did you know that in Australia, it is estimated that a child is born with CP every 15 hours… crazy…

Wheelie Big ChallengeLast year we raised money for TCCP and will more than likely do some more fundraising for this year’s Wheelie Big Challenge (2013/14). It all ends on with a fun day called The Wheelie Big Day Out at Burswood Park Foreshore on Sunday the 14th April. We will definitely be there and do the 1km walk with Cayla and enjoy the festivities.

If you are into running or cycling then you might be interested in The 2013 Walk Wheel Run for Charity (WWR). The Wheelie Big Day Out is a fun day and everyone is welcome to join us. Check out this video clip for more information:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d-yHtQ-oyAg&feature=player_embedded
