Talking to Ursula Hurworth. Daily Loop No.6

I got up early on the 6th of September, meandered down to the Fox's Pantry and filled my cup with a steaming wake up call, shortly after, I headed to the The Event Crew's Gold Coast Running Festival. I was there to shoot photos, soak up the atmosphere of the first Covid-normal mass participation event in a long time and just generally mill about.

Talking to Corbin Harris. MyMarathon Daily Loop No.5

Corbin Harris is like no other person I know, he carries himself with an energy that is both positive and ever present, he's a realist and an optimist simultaneously, part enigma, part public figure, a balance of world beating confidence and the work ethic of a Mallee Bull. He's stamped his mark on skateboarding globally, on and off the board

Corbin Harris a planet ? for our future generations ?. Sick read, loved it ?

Talking to Céline Di Lauro. MyMarathon Daily Loop No. 4

This is a tale of a person who doesn't consider herself to be very active at all, a regular homemaker who loves dogs more than most people, but peeling back the layers reveals a person who makes a load of conscious decisions about the way she keeps herself buoyant, mentally and physically. Céline Di Lauro is a good mate, a fo

If there was one person who has played the lead role in the story of my life, it is definitely my wife Sarah Archer. A rock for our family, solid through everything that life can throw at us, ups and downs and absolutely steadfast through every twist and turn my heart condition has hurled at myself and my daughter Minnie. Sarah is a strong and pow

Cracking start to the day, nice to get out and stretch the legs and incorporate a call with @Damien Dau and @Trent Allan while at it!

This habit I’m developing is one of my best yet. At this rate I’ll clock up my 1,000km goal for 2022 in no time! #strictlywalking #musing

I wish we have places like that here and all the other awesome places you go to! 
You inspire me to exceed my goals! Cheers to you Troy!

I needed running water over rocks, bird sounds and light breaking through trees, so I went and got it, and I’m bloody thankful for it. Today’s walk was a short one, but my favourite this month so far!

Great day so far! Saw a rainbow, logged some k’s, even found out what it feels like to lose my credit card... turns out modern technology makes it very painless! 🥳

A short walk, a downpour and a haircut. Today’s kilometres were overrun with distraction...

How good are walks around your neighbourhood! Crackin’ afternoon to grab some kilometres! Saw plenty of normal stuff worth taking photos of... 🌿

I’m not one for NY’s resolutions, but I’m a sucker for goals! So I’ve committed myself to clocking 1,000kms of walking this year. That might sound like a small goal for most but for me, not so much. Expect to see plenty of photos of the random stuff I encounter along the way, and I’ll be sharing my podcast secrets with you too... Today I’m learning about Roswell! Super excited about this goal, and about 2021 in general! 🙌🏼🙌🏼

How good is Summer!!! 🙌🏼👏😂

day. Sweating has mostly negative connotations, however, very few people
realise just quite how important sweatin
