Scuba Diving

I recently joined an Adventure group on the Gold Coast to meet new people and do fun adventure stuff. My first adventure was scuba diving. Something I always wanted to do. It was good fun, but not sure the Gold Coast Broadwater compares to the Blue Hole. Maybe I might try next time up the Great Barrier Reef!

Flash Mob Performance

I am wearing pink on the right.

As part of the Surfers Paradise Festival the Common People Dance Project were doing a Flash Mob performance and were looking for participants. Sara and I decided to join the bandwagon and spent the next three weeks learning the performance. We finally performed it in Surfers Paradise on Saturday and even made it in the Gold Coast Bulletin. Was heaps of fun and sad its now over.

RSPCA Million Paws Walk

The Annual RSPCA Millions Paws Walk was today and actually having a dog this year I decided to take Toffee along. Toffee dressed up for the occassion and off we went.
The Million Paws Walk is the biggest fundraiser the RSPCA has. It costs $12.00 to enter and you can do the 1.5 or 3km walk. Toffee's little legs managed to walk it around the full course and we had so much fun with all the other puppies!

Toffee wasn't the only one that dressed up though!
That guy in the white shirt, third from the left, Lincoln Lewis aka Geoff from Home and Away
All pooped after our walk, what a great day!

Mothers Day Classic

Earlier in the year I decided to set a few goals for myself and one of them was the 8km fun run in the Mother's Day Classic.

I had been running about 5km's on average on the treadmill and only managed to do two 8km runs, but I was still hoping to run in a relatively good time.

A week before the run, I got the Chicken Pox so I couldn't do any more preparation for the run, so fingers crossed.

On the day, I was feeling less itchy and less spotty and was really looking forward to the run and doing it in a good time.

The run went relatively well, luckily I ended up running with another girl who ran at the same pace as me, because otherwise I don't think I would have made it. Being sick and not training and also with my dodgy ankle was making my life hell.

I did however manage to finish the run and was pleasantly surprised that I managed to do it in under 1 hour which was my goal.

I don't think I will do another 8km run as my ankle was just not coming to the party and due to my ice skating injury doesn't work the same any more. I have however signed up for a more manageable 5km run in July which I am hoping to do in around 30 - 35 minutes.

I really want to thank everyone below and was stoked to have raised $140.00 to help breast cancer research. Thanks heaps guys xoxo

Raised so far: $140.00
