Kiwi mum Sue Hardy will run the Jungle Marathon in Brazil during October held over 6 days and covering 256k. “This will be the most exciting adventure I have ever done and I am so excited” commented Hardy “But my biggest fear going into this race is being lost in the (Amazon) jungle on my own.”
When I started running at school I failed miserably. I was so much better at gymnastics. I could bend backwards, flip, somersault and do the splits in more ways than possible but I just couldn’t run fast. Always near the back and never in the front I decided longer races might be the go – I had more stamina than the average kid so the cross country team might be the place for me – plus they had sports days away from school – another good reason to join.
