Realistically I can now see how marathon training has been used as an analogy for wealth accumulation you really do need time to achieve results next time I'll give myself more time to train!! Clearly the earlier you start the better the results, exactly the same with wealth accumulation (or debt reduction for that matter)
Fortunately I have come through unscathed apart from walking gingerly the whole time trying to recover in between runs.
I'd like to take this opportunity to ask for a few dollars to help the children, if you can spare anything please follow the link below. I feel that my wife Katie summed up why I am doing this quite well on her facebook page -
Sean's running in the Blackmore's Sydney Marathon on Sunday. He's running 42.195km (that's a long way). He's been training for 5 weeks now, which means some very early mornings starting at 4.30am, working super hard and often isn't home before 8pm, spending time with his crazy kids and helping me.
He's been doing this to raise money for the sydney children's hospital, as one of Coop's mates in his class, Hugo has Neuroblastoma stage 4. He was 10 months old when diagnosed, and he had 5 tumours each the size of a peach in his tiny little body. 1 behind each lung, 1 in each adrenal gland and 1 around his spine. He has had 8 rounds of chemo, numerous surgeries , lost a kidney and had part of his bowel removed .
The last surgery in,July 2015, to remove part of the tumour that has invaded his spinal column compressing his spine. He still has 5 tumours - you can't remove neuroblastoma fully - it isn't a solid tumour - it's like chewing gum and sticks to everything it touches.
I'd really appreciate it if you could donate even just a small amount to his cause. It would also boost his spirits a bit. I've inserted the link below.
