#whywerun - Adam Murphy
“I run to get out and challenge myself both physically and mentally, to get out into nature - to disconnect from technology and spend time with like-minded legends. Whether it’s running 5km at parkrun or 100km at Surf Coast Century, the simplicity of running is what draws me in. There’s no cheating - you get out what you put in and I’m a lover of hard work.
I ran my first marathon at Melbourne Marathon in 2015, 1 month later I was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. For me this wasn’t all doom and gloom it was a lightbulb moment for me to get out of my comfort zone and see what I can achieve, broken pancreas and all.
My next few events include Marysville Marathon, Two Bays 56km & Duncan’s 50km.”
We love your work mate.. Keep inspiring others by pushing your limits, it’s great to see!
