  • Pat,

    Banking a healthy/strong training campaign is often easier said than done. We're not bullet proof and other priorities often come into play. I was chatting to Ed Jan (Rob Schneider) on Sunday and he was appreciating the fact he's managed to "stay true" throughout his campaign and with 2 weeks to go he was healthy/injury free & pumped. This time last year Ed was a member of the walking wounded and was living on a prayer which failed to deliver. Chances are you're in the same boat (ok, no more clichés) as Ed and excited by the fact only 13 days stand between you and your Gold Coast goal.

    If your name is on this list I'll be collecting your race number.

    Options for collecting:

    • At PCRG during the week prior to the Gold Coast Airport Marathon. Also @ PatCarrollOnline.com booth at Gold Coast Expo (June 1/2) from 12pm Friday to 3pm Saturday. Also @ PCRG marquee Sunday July 3/pre race.

    Payment for the Motivational Evening with Steve Moneghetti is due by this Friday. Payment options here. Auction items required and please email me if you can assist. Donators of Auction Items will be acknowledge in next weeks Newsletter as well as during the Auction which will be conducted by one of Australia's most sort after Auctioneers!

    There're 210 PCRG members running at the Coast and with < 2 weeks to go PCRG's fundraising page involves 6 members rasing much need funds for The Australian Lung Foundation. I know we've had a tough year to date however there're so many great people in our community who're willing to donate to a worthy cause. I'll be sending out an email to everyone on my Newsletter list (4000+ subscribers) in the next day or so and I invite you to do the same. Mike Hansen (PCRG member) is encouraging PCRG members to get involved by (Insurance Broking Qld) donating $10.00 for every PCRG Member that registers on the everydayhero site.

    It's easy:

    1. Visit this everydayhero page
    2. Just to the left of the Hero Meter click on: Join this team
    3. Enter details on first page creating your own username and password
    4. On second page you'll be asked for a password: ACHIEVE
    5. You're done and it's just a matter of forwarding an email to the contacts in your address book inviting them to sponsor your Gold Coast run by directing them to your everydayhero fundraising page.
    6. 10min of your time could raise hundreds of $'s for The Australian Lung Foundation

    I went for a solo run this am and there's no denying it was initially brisk. 10min into the run I was warm as toast and setting myself up for a ripper day. Tomorrow mornings session will take pace in the Botanical Gardens. Stay TRUE and I'll catch you in the am!

    PCRG Silver Sponsor: Crust Gourmet Pizza Bar

    Pizza shouldn't leave you feeling greasy and ashamed. It should be a delicious way to eat when life's too busy or you simply just fancy your favourite. It used to be that you had to choose between a quality pizza or home delivery. Not any more.
