Star Stadium Goal Complete!

Hello!

Very exciting news to announce...my Star Stadium goal target was reached! I am so grateful and humbled by the amazing support I have received with this venture. The funds I managed to raise will go a long way in allowing me to continue training full time toward the Commonwealth Games trials in April next year. 
The support I have received has motivated me to train as hard as possible so that I can represent Australia for all of my Star Stadium sponsors and hopefully do you all proud.

On the last day of the fundraising I promised 10 burpees for every person who donated that day...I ended up having to do 120 burpees! There's a short clip of it on my instragram account here: http://instagram.com/annelieserubie

In other news, over the weekend my Sydney Uni team mates and I competed in the NSW State Relays - and we brought the rain (literally!) Image

Almost completing a clean sweep of every open's race, it was a very successful weekend.
I competed in the 4x200m, Sprint Medlay, and the 4x400m events, we won all three and broke a few State and National records on the way too.

I was very pleased with my performances and we got a few rough times for my leg in each relay...it is safe to say I am on track to attain that qualifying standard in a few months!

In the gym this morning I also recorded a few PB's in my lifts (Hang clean = 62.5kg). Definitely getting stronger and faster for next season!Image

Thanks for your continual support!
