I am absolutely thrilled, humbled, excited and pinching myself as today I am able to announce that I’ve been selected as one of the baton bearers in the 2018 Commonwealth Games Queen’s Baton Relay.
As the baton makes its way to the Gold Coast, I’ll have the honour of carrying the baton as it goes through South Perth on February 24th next year.
All I can say is “wow”. When I started on this journey to lose weight, get fit and run a marathon, little did I know I would end up crossing the country on foot, taking part in the World Masters Games, and now this.
Thank you everyone for your support and the part you’ve played in all of this, and a special thanks to those who nominated me for this incredible honour!
