Albert Park is my favourite walk

(Walk took place on July 19th 2011, 53 days before the Mt Kili Climb)

Training is a breeze when your practice walks take you to the beautiful Albert Park. The pictures speak louder than words! How lucky am I to have experienced such a beautiful dya and such a beautiful atmosphere as I powered around this park.

 

The swans were out to play.

The sun was shining.

The city acted as a beautiful backdrop and contrast to the natural setting.

The lake was sparkling.

 

This may just be my new favourite training walk. I did 2 hours from door to door, which included a lap of the lake and a few laps of the various sports grounds. The great thing also is that it’s a dirt track and there is lots of grass so that I can vary my training and experience different terrains.

 

Albert Park is just 10 minutes from Melbourne City. It’s got this amazing lake, tennis courts, AFL grounds, cafes, restaurants, a rowing club, the very modern sports and swimming complex and the bbq and park areas. You can get lost in this enormous park and be spoiled for activities for an entire week!

I will be taking on my biggest Adventure yet, Climbing Kilimanjaro for Alzheimer’s Australia NSW!  I will Climb Kilimanjaro in honour of my Grandpa who passed away from Alzheimer’s in 2008. I was in Africa when I found out and I said at the time I would one day do this for him, in his memory! We are raising money for Alzheimer’s Australia NSW to raise awareness and the necessary funds for prevention of the disease that affects so many. Dementia is the third leading cause of death in Australia, after heart disease and stroke. We must prevent and find a cure as it’s not a normal part of aging, and does affect 100,000’s of Australians.

 

Help me reach my $10.000 target by donating to my online fundraising page:
