We would like to thank those who have already expressed their interest in the event. This seminar is open to the first 40 people who respond to the event. For those who have already responded 'going' or are thinking of responding 'going' please ensure that you are definitely able to attend the seminar. A waiting list will be formed for the people who respond 'going' after the seminar is full.

I miss you al year around but especially right now with the tennis on. I was at the tennis in 06, 09, 12 and 15, it feels a bit wrong to miss 18. But life's new adventures have taken me elsewhere, Melbourne I'll be back as soon as Matilda is old enough to enjoy you as much as I do
Great post Matt! 🏃🏻♂️🏃🏻♀️
This post can belong to two groups, or both groups as one.
How good has running been for your mental health?
I almost do not know where to start. Is it the rush I get after a run, a race, a training session. Or is it the ability to discover things about myself on nearly ever run. The ability to sit with the pain and show myself how much stronger I truly am than my mind allows. Learning this allows me to put this into practice when my anxiety is at its worst or my depression comes to play. Running is another form of meditation for myself. You see with running it’s just you and your thoughts, you can allow yourself to react or you can allow yourself to observe and not play that game. It takes practice but overtime this has saved me from long winded anxiety or even giving up when running.
The confidence running gives you is one of a kind, whether you are chasing a time, a goal or having fun, when you step foot over that finish line 🏁 the feeling of accomplishment is immense. Apart of you grows. For me it was the sense of not giving up. On the running track or in life!
I, like many people owe a lot to running, I follow many people through social media who run, and I love reading your journeys and I love seeing and hearing you tick off your goals.
Thank you for this platform to speak up about my mental health. As a average joe runner who is hooked on ultra marathons, running with mates and having a laugh, I’m truly grateful I’m still here to enjoy such a simple pleasure of running. 🏃♂️ Matty -
Nice work Kat and crew! - Repost @runwithkat
7 of the 2XU Run Crew did Two Bays at the weekend so tonight’s session was conversation pace to get moving again, and a quality speed session for the rest of the group. Nice to look back at the pics and remember that recovery time is worth it 😃 Great work team 👊🏻 #twobays2018#twobaystrailrun#2xuruncrew#2xu#melbourneinstarunners

Running up hill on the Two Bays Trail last week! Such an amazing feeling to have this 28km race under my belt in 2:33, 10 minutes faster than my target! I was supposed to run it with my sister who decided to move half way across the world 2 months before the event 😭Not only is this trail so beautiful but the people you meet out on course and the support & encouragement from everyone involved is the best thing ever. One step closer 💕💕💕💕 #twobaystrailrun#struggleface#uphill
I got to run a short section of #twobaystrailrun with @runningthebluesaway as he completes the first of his 5 ultras in 5 months, raising awareness and funds for anxiety and depression.
Give him a follow and spur him on!
