Simon Davie Husky Run for Isla and Jude

I've just decided to run the Marathon in Jervis Bay on October 29th (I've been training for a while but only just signed up for this event) and trying to raise as much as possible in the short time we have before it starts.

Zara led the charge to make a giant loom band to stretch across the entire Harbour Bridge for 'Loom for Sanfilippo' in 2015, and 8yo Leo ran 10km across the same Bridge last month for the SF Super Series, so I figure I should give the 42.2km my best crack.

We would really appreciate your help and financial support.

12 days to go.
I went into Athlete's Foot on Sunday for a new pair of runners. They'd put me on the flashy-walky-machine-analysis-foot-tester, then basically pointed me to the most expensive pair in the shop, and proceeded to tell me that I needed extra cushioned insoles too.
I was pretty sceptical, but decided to trust their wisdom (especially as his name badge was 'Trainee' so I figured he had to be the expert in trainers). Turns out he was spot on though - just did a PB for 21km.
