I have finally made it to the end of my training! I had my two final training runs on Tuesday and Wednesday, a 50 km run and a 45 km run, both went pretty well and am feeling great today :D
I really want to express how grateful I am to everyone who has supported my running, particularly my up coming Brisbane to Sydney run. I want to thank every single person that has donated from friends, family to complete strangers that I have never met but are kind enough to donate to such a great cause.
The image above is from the Courier Mail website in the South East Advertiser section. This was from the photo shoot from last weekend! The article came out a couple of day's ago, I'm not over excited about the other photo that came with it, doesn't really look like me and also they got a bit wrong in the article. It states that I ran my first Ultra in 2009 (true) that was a race of the length of NZ (false). My first ultra was a 100 km race, the NZ nationals. I ran the length of NZ (solo) in 2010. Just a small mix up but never mind!

I also had an interview with the main Courier Mail Newspaper, that went really well and should be out in the next day or two.
I will try and post on here as much as I can during the big run that starts on Saturday, I may not be able to post when staying at camping grounds but should be able to when staying in Motels, Hotels etc. To keep up with where I am you can see the route here http://www.andrewhedgman.com/Brisbane-to-Sydney-Route.html I should however be able to make small posts everyday on my Facebook page located here www.facebook.com/andrewhedgman :D
I will spend today and tomorrow having a bit of rest but will still be getting things organized for the big run.
I hope everyone is enjoying their week :D
