The Kangaroo Island Marathon will be my 9th marathon on 5 continents, in the quest to join the '7 Continents Marathon Club'. But my daughter has become my real inspiration.
I'm a triathlete from San Diego USA who travelled 'downunder' with my wife Laurie to run the 2016 Kangaroo Island Marathon.
I am a member of the 'Friends of the Parks' volunteer group who hosted one of the drinks stations at the 2016 Kangaroo Island Marathon & Half Marathon.
Three weeks to go and my friend Rhi and I can confidently say that we are finally ready to take on the Kangaroo Island Marathon.

I'm proud to be the Founder and Race Director of the Kangaroo Island Marathon. But I'm not sure what's more challenging, running a marathon or organising a marathon?
The Kangaroo Island Marathon is one of Australia’s newest long-distance events and is gearing up for its second running in late August.
Majestic Hotels CEO Eoin Loftus will run 189km across Kangaroo Island to raise awareness for Aboriginal foster children in South Australia. The marathons will be run over four consecutive days, with the Kangaroo Island Marathon acting as the final 42.2km. Learn more about Eoin's journey and this worthy cause here.

My husband and I recently entered the Kangaroo Island Marathon #myrunningmate competition. We thought if we won wouldn’t it be amazing to finally get a Honeymoon after 7 years of marriage. We are still shocked that 1400 people voted for us, but so utterly amazingly we won! And so the training begins.
I distinctly remember my first reaction when a colleague of mine declared that she wanted to run a half marathon. It was more of a scoff than anything. Before this madness entered my life, I proudly wore the mantra of "running is for emergencies only".
