After a long week waiting in anticipation, Athletics Australia yesterday announced the marathon team selected to compete at the Commonwealth Games at Glasgow. I am over the moon to be selected, along with Jess Trengove, Sarah Klein, Martin Dent, Michael Shelley and Liam Adams. It is a great honour to represent the country, and I cannot wait to do so!
What an amazing past 12 months it has been for me! I have had so much success with my running already, and under the guidance of Coach Telford, I am continuing to see improvements week after week. Being selected for the Commonwealth Games is an amazing achievement in itself, and it really is exciting to know that I have so much more ahead of me.
A big thank you to my sponsors On-Running and Adidas Eyewear, coach Dick Telford, and all my friends and family that are so supportive!
With only 10 weeks to go, I am in full training and loving every step of the way to Glasgow!
