I’m sorry to take such a long disappearance from writing – I’m not even sure what the topic is. Between starting a new job and other stuff I’ve been absolutely swamped.

And to top it off I’ve volunteered to join an Oxfam Trailwalker (http://www2.oxfam.org.au/trailwalker/Sydney/) team due to a drop-out. I don’t know if any of you have heard of the trailwalker but it’s a 100 km walk (straight) through the Australian bush that needs to be completed in 48 hours. It’s an amazing test of endurance. My toes hurt from the training, and it’s only 3 weeks away. I did 35 km of the track last weekend and that was amazing on its own.

I’m pretty excited but also scared. I’m scared my body won’t hold up, or that my mind won’t hold up or my emotional/stress level won’t hold up. But I’m also looking forward to the challenge.

If any of you feel so inclined to donate, it’s for a great cause.
