Hi, I’m Stacy Harsh. I have always loved exercise and how it makes me feel both physically fit and mentally strong. Challenging myself to train for events has always got me through the hardest times in my life, so earlier this year I set myself a fitness goal to nurture my wellbeing.
However sadly, every fitness event that I enrolled in got cancelled due to Covid-19 restrictions. Determined not to give up too easily and to keep my goal, I’ve created my own HALF IRONMAN!
However sadly, every fitness event that I enrolled in got cancelled due to Covid-19 restrictions. Determined not to give up too easily and to keep my goal, on the 26th of September, I completed my very first Ironman 70.3 on a track mapped out on the Central Coast! It consisted of a swim 1.9km at Terrigal Beach, ride 90km towards Swansea and back, then run 21km from Terrigal to Bateau Bay and return.
With the help of an amazing volunteer support crew, we did it!
But we are not stopping there... I am continuing my conquest to inspire people to stay mentally and physical fit through these uncertain times.
On Sat 14th Nov we are hosting a run event with 42.2K Marathon, 21.1K Half Marathon and 10K distances.
If you would like to participate we would love to have you on board, please DM me for interest.
Please follow my journey online, share and donate if you can!
Supporting the Mental Health of Central Coast Families
Taking my wellness goal one step further, I’m raising funds to help support the mental health of families on the Central Coast. Please help make my challenge even more impactful and sponsor my event by donating to Central Coast ARAFMI.
Central Coast ARAFMI is a local charity that supports the mental health of whole families, including people in their mental health recovery journey, and carers of people affected by mental health issues.
Central Coast ARAFMI is a community organisation that welcomes everyone, relying on the generous support of individuals and partners to do this work.
About 1 in every 2 Australians will experience a mental health issue in their lifetime. This number is on the rise during these unconventional times with so many Australians being impacted by the Coronavirus global pandemic. Any donations will be kindly appreciated to help Central Coast families in need.
