Delirious West - 200 and 100 miler 2024

One of the joys of my job as a physiotherapist and running coach is getting to work with trail and ultra runners of all abilities!

For the past 4 iterations of Delirious West 200 and 100 Miler (yes miles) - I've had the pleasure and honour of coaching, volunteering and crewing. It's been an incredible experience at any end of the spectrum. A whole week of the South West stretched between Northcliffe in the South West and Albany on the south coast. Karri and Tingle forests for miles and some of the most spectacular and iconic beaches in Australia.

This year, not only do I get to see two of my coached athletes Karin Ridley and Shannon Wakefield take on the beast that is the 200 miler, along with the wonderful Willah Sewell on her maiden 100-mile adventure - I get to participate in a new modus. While I'm so excited to see these incredible women smash their goals, I'm so excited to join The Ultra Series Australia crew on the Event Management team.

This year, I'll be joining Event Director Shaun Kaesler as a Race director.
Needless to say, this is new territory for me, it's been a while since I've been in an event management position, but I'm certainly looking forward to the challenge.

There will be an event tracker so that you can follow along at home. I'll be checking in over the course of the week on The Long Run - Stories. So follow along for updates and an inside look at what goes into these events.

Event details here: https://deliriouswest200miler.com.au/

I have some appointments open on Monday Morning (5th of Feb). Then I'll be back in the office from Wednesday 14th Feb.

Rob and Belinda are available as usual next week and the next.
See you on the other side!

Becoming: Mind, Body and Soul

It is with much excitement we can finally announce, in collaboration with Sarah Kaesler (Counsellor and Psychotherapist ) and Belinda Neo (Accredited Registered Dietitian), we will be bringing you our very first women's retreat in January of 2024 (17th-21st).

Our focus for the retreat will be a journey of self-discovery, and self-reflection while moving and nourishing our bodies and uplifting our souls. If you're struggling to find the right balance in your life or struggling with body image, self-love, and acceptance, or feeling like you are just plane faking it in life and career, this weekend will be a guided experience to help you break past some of those barriers and move into life with the skills and confidence to accept everything you already are. 

We have strictly limited spots available, so don't miss out.

Retreat costs and a breakdown of what you can expect can be found over on the Bookings page.
Come and join us for an uplifting weekend that will leave you feeling ready to tackle everything 2024 has in store.

We'll release more details as they become finalised. 

Rob now offers Dry Needling as part of his services

Remedial Massage Therapist Rob recently completed his studies in Dry Needling and is now delighted to be able to offer this as part of his services.

Dry Needling is an advanced practice that is very effective and beneficial in helping to relieve the ache of tight and sore muscles. As an invasive practice (the insertion of very fine acupuncture needles in the muscle belly) it isn't suitable for everyone, so please declare if you have any blood-borne illness or bleeding disorder, are taking blood thinners, or believe that you may be pregnant. *Unlike acupuncture, Dry needling is a therapy and not a philosophy.
