Alex, Fit to Walk and Talk & how it all started.

After the sudden death of a work colleague and friend Alex decided to write his first book, and called it Fit to Walk and Talk … and Live!

To promote the book he decided to demonstrate creating a healthy habit, like walking every day for 30 days, only his 30 day journey was a long walk from Melbourne to Brisbane, approximately 2000kms, or 65kms a day. Helen joined him on the walk.

We completed the walk in 1999 and yes, we did it in exactly 30 days … 26 blisters, some torn muscles, many massages and some incredible moments along the way.

Below you can read the article from 1999 after the walk to Brisbane.
