So this is Mel. We're the same age and met at @achilles_sydney . She has some vision ๐Ÿ‘€ in the day but definitely benefits from having a guide to help her out. I had no idea she suffered from chronic disease that affects how her body uses energy and her digestive system just doesn't really work... she runs with a pack and glucose and does stomach or tube feeds ๐Ÿ˜ฑ.
.
Mel is such a happy and down to earth person - and never complains. We found out that we live very close to each other so we're going to start doing some longer runs together & experiment with different ways that I could guide her. We're also the same height ๐Ÿ™Šand we're both comfortable at similar paces - which makes guiding and teetering a lot easier for both of us.
.
I'm so incredibly humbled by Mel and I've found a new friend of the same age with similar interests . She doesn't even realise how awe inspiring she is- she has that mega watt ๐Ÿ’ก smile most of the time ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜ƒ.
.
If anyone's ever near Botanical Gardens on Sunday mornings, come say hello to @achilles_sydney or come join us every once in awhile. There are so many incredible people here who either volunteer or show up to get some sunshine โ˜€๏ธ & a bit of a walk/jog/social time. Love love love this community.

Catherine & I guiding Majella- who walk/jogged Sutherland2Surf. We had a great day out, though guiding is more challenging when there's lots of ppl weaving in & out/ can't hear us trying to clear a path! I've got so much more appreciation for what some of our vision impaired runners go through to just start a race ๐Ÿ.

24km in the bank ๐Ÿค—First there were two Squaddies then there were three ๐Ÿค“. Check out the mist on the water on the left of Andrea.... 4 degrees to start but warmed up beautifully!

FB reminded me of this photo from 5 yrs ago- when I had just retired from competitive gymnastics. I was so lean & had a furnace of a metabolic rate, but I was always injured, had strapped joints, something always hurt, competed with stress fractures, trained on torn ligaments - u name it ๐Ÿ˜ฑI looked strong but was not healthy inside ...
.
I'm definitely nowhere near as lean now - but I don't need a new wheel of strapping tape every week, I'm eating better now than when I was competing ๐Ÿ™„and my body can sustain longer workouts & is more fuel efficient ....I feel ๐Ÿ’ฏ % healthier & love where my legs and lungs can take me๐ŸŒฟ๐Ÿพ๐ŸŒฒ๐Ÿ„๐Ÿ(but let's be honest, I do miss being super lean ๐Ÿ˜‚- just not the cost it had on my body).
