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 ๐ŸŒŽ for our future generations ๐Ÿ™. Sick read, loved it ๐Ÿ‘Š

Talking to Cรฉline 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

Talking to Sarah Archer. MyMarathon Daily Loop No. 3

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.

Talking to Minnie Archer. MyMarathon Daily Loop No.2

The thing that makes driving a potentially dangerous vehicle less scary is that you're the one driving it. Take yourself out of the drivers seat and your journey as a passenger immediately gives rise to a different level of anxiety. You don't have your hands on the wheel or your foot near the brake, so you just don't have the same level of control

haha, great article Troy Archer. She sure looks like a mini version of Sarah Archer.

I’m doing the Heart Foundation MyMarathon Challenge

I'll tell you why this is so important to me below. If you get through the whole story i'm hoping you'll help me fund heart research by clicking on the link."Since I was born, I have died more times than I care to recall."I sometimes say hundreds of times, but I don't really know exactly. To help you picture the frequency, it's happened 5 and 7 ti

Micro hikes

Sometimes you just don't have enough time to do it properly, and sometimes, not doing it properly actually becomes so proper it's not even funny! Today was one of those very days. A mountain of work to be done, but that mountain of work had to be put in the shadow of an actual mountain, for just a bit. Introducing... the micro hike of Tugun Hill C

Today marks the end of the Heart Foundation MyMarathon Challenge that I and 10,870 other people took part in. I'm really blown away by the support i've been shown, not just online, in real life too. I've learnt a few REALLY valuable things this month, most notably that I DO have the ability to find the time to be more active, 10 - 15hours per week on average, and my work hasn't suffered, nor has my family life, I actually feel like I just somehow found extra time... funny what prioritising can do! I feel awesome, and proud of what i've done this month. My knees held up and everything! Thanks for joining the journey, i'm going to keep walking and interviewing people, it's way too enjoyable not to! X Troy

Sarah Archer and I have been more active than ever, well, I have been, she's kind of always been on the move. Anyway... we're psyched about trying some Nosht to see how it helps fuel workouts and walks and whatnot! Looking forward to its arrival! ๐Ÿ‘

Thank you so much Robbie and Beth! ๐Ÿ™ How amazing are people! In the mail today, an envelope with $200 to contribute to the MyMarathon Challenge i'm doing with the Heart Foundation throughout October. Such a great surprise and an amazing show of support. Thank you sincerely. 
Update: I've completed 45km's of my 42.2km distance goal for October. My knee has been average at best, but manageable! With the help of some amazing people (like you!), together we've raised almost $3,500 of my $5,000 target! Plenty of month left to get there. DONATING IS EASY, copy and paste this link and help fund heart disease research and treatment, every bit counts:

Marley is 5 and Iโ€™m 43 and this morning we did a 10km ride together. If I had $1 for each time that he said โ€œis this the way home Dad?โ€ I could have bought him a new bike by the time we were done! Super proud of him doing his first big ride though, he actually did better than I thought he would. Sarah Archer ๐Ÿ”ฅ

Why is sweating so good for you?

Sweating;
‘eww’, ‘gross’, ‘smelly’, ‘embarrassing’, ‘unfit’. Here are just a few of the
phrases you may hear if you’re dripping with sweat after a workout or on a hot
day. Sweating has mostly negative connotations, however, very few people
realise just quite how important sweatin
