In just over a week I'll be running the Red Bull Wings For Life World Run in Melbourne, Australia. I've some great friends who I'm excited to be running along side with for such an amazing foundation, some of who will be running in different countries, but we'll be all running at the same time.

Coming from an events background I know all to well that volunteers play an important role in ensuring that events such as the Wings For Life World Run being a success. I've volunteered with Red Bull in the past on many events and can say first hand that it's a great experience and one you shouldn't pass up.

If you're unable to run at this years event but still looking for a way to get involved, they're looking for volunteers to assist in the Wings for Life World Run Melbourne event. To take part or for any enquiries please contact michaela.langsdale@limelightsports.com or call +61 473 536 451.

Beat The Winter Blues

One of the many ways to beat the winter blues is to spend time with good company, and I'm not talking about spending time with a furry friend in front of the TV, I'm talking about catching up with friends over a hot beverage and some delicious treats.

San Churro (my personal favourite place to grab a hot chocolate) is releasing their winter menu which features six new indulgent desserts and drinks on Tuesday 28 April. I've had a sneak at the new menu and I'm already thinking about who I'd like to share (or may be not) the Crème Brulée with. It's been refereed to of the star of the new menu. Given that it's freshly scorched with a blow torch to create a crisp toffee layer on top, and has been given a Spanish twist by being served with mini churros and vanilla ice cream, who could resist.

Then again, the other new menu items are the Banana Carmel Cup, Salted Caramel Volcano, Salted Carmel Tart - which looks amazing, Tiramisu Sundae and the Lamington El Grande Hot Chocolate, so their are quite a few deliciously indulgent options to choose from.

If like me you like the idea of spending time with freinds enjoying not just good company, but a great atmosphere and tasty treat why not ctach up and one of San Churro’s stores to indulge in the new winter menu items.

The Wings For Life World Run

Wings for Life World Run
I'm generally not one to participate in fun runs. Actually, I think the last one I participated in was the Run Melbourne in 2011 where I had run 5 kilometers. I do recall finishing it and thinking that I should of tried doing the 10 kilometers.

I think that's probably why I love the format of the Wings for Life World Run. The Wings for Life World Run is a unique race, where you run ahead of a ‘Catcher Car’, instead of running towards a finish line. So even though you can set your goal to run a certain distance, whether it be 5km or 50km, once the ‘Catcher Car’ overtakes you, your race is over. Which means you may possibly end up running (or walking, or skipping, or hopping) further than what you originally set out to do. Oh, I should add you get a 30 minute head start on the ‘Catcher Car’!

The event is a global event, with the whole world running at exactly the same time. People around the globe will be taking part in 35 cities across 6 continents, all running for those who can’t. The entire entry fee for the race goes towards Red Bull's foundation Wings for Life which funds research into making spinal cord injury curable.

The Wings for Life World Run will take place in Melbourne for the very first time on 3 May 2015. I've signed up with the aim of running between 5 and 10 kilometers. If I run over 10 kilometers I'll be very proud of myself. I've been training hard and am feeling confident that I'll hit my target of 10 kilometers.

Introducing 3...

I wish everyone a wonderful Easter Sunday to celebrate here are three facts about the Easter Bunny:

1. Germans who settled in the Pennsylvania Dutch area told tales of the "Osterhas," which refers to a hare, not a rabbit.

2. Pre-Christian pagans worshipped Eostre, the goddess of Spring, whose symbol was a hare.

3. The first story of a rabbit (later named the “Easter Bunny”) hiding eggs in a garden was published in 1680.
