Catherine Leetch

My Story

I was diagnosed with MS in early 2017 and once I had worked through the shock and panic I started to make some lifestyle changes that I really think have me in the best health of my life (ironic huh?). I have worked on my diet, mindfullness and overall wellbeing but continue to be quite sporadic in my exercise routine (which is a big part of slowing disease progression). I have therefore decided to take on a sustained challenge that i can work towards, and to keep me accountable I would like to raise funds for Kiss Goodbye to MS. Having worked with the team at KGTMS in the past and have seen how dedicated and passionate they are in searching for a cure for multiple sclerosis so I know that together we will get it done! My plan is as follows: From July 29 2018 to July 29 2019 I will run 1000km – for ‘runner runners’ this may not be a big feat, for me this is Everest! Some runs will be at official running events and some will be local runs tracked on a dedicated Strava account. I will try and tie in distance milestones with iconic runs/locations but realistically I also predict an occasional treadmill selfie to keep me on target once those Sydney rain storms hit! Hopefully I can rope some friends and other MS warriors in to join on the personal runs to keep the fun factor up! Keep an eye on this page for regular running updates, exhausted selfies and winning smiles when I cross the finish lines! If you would like to join me for a few km’s along the way on a neighbourhood run, please get in touch at catherineleetch@gmail.com but be warned for me this is about the distance, not the speed (picture a tortoise!) Please get in touch with any tips, recommended routes/events or some good old motivation Wish me luck Cat xx

I really want to thank you all for your generous support. I'm into the last 5 weeks so I can see the light but the pressure is on now! As most of you know I added an extra 100km to coincide with the KGTMS May fundraiser and amazingly that pushed me over my fundraising target with nearly $1000 raised on that extra challenge so definitely worth it! I absolutely curse you all when the alarm goes off for those early morning runs ;) and I am sick to death of treadmill days but for all my complaining i know I will continue running once this challenge has finished as I can feel how much it helps me. I am very tired and feeling the pressure but I'm into the 900s now so I'm on the home stretch and am getting excited for the final day! Again, thank you all so much.....Cat x

Good on you - I personally can't think of anything worse than running 1000km in less than 6 months but I'm very impressed you're doing it. Smash it, Leetch! Morris xx
