KKB has been following the progress of Deborah de Williams, who is attempting a world record run around Australia to raise funds for the National Breast Cancer Foundation.
We were both devastated to read on her blog last night that she has recently had to retire from her attempt to become the first female to run around Australia. Running between 20 and 50ks every day for a year is always going to take its toll, but about a month ago, Deborah tripped over her running companion Maggie, her border collie. She has soldiered on since then, but having twisted her ankle, she has had ongoing injuries due to changing her gait to compensate.
A gutsy lady, she's looking to start her second attempt in February and will continue her fundrasing effort for the NBCF.
Our thoughts are with you Deborah.
