On Sunday, 14 January, 5 dedicated young people from Chester Hill High School reaped the benefits of 6 months of consistent hard work as they completed their first half-marathon at the Cadbury Marathon running festival in Hobart, Tasmania.

Smiles stretched from ear to ear as the boys relished their accomplishments, post-race. It was an achievement that did not come easily, with all of the boys struggling to complete training runs of less than 5km when preparations commenced back in July, last year!

Commitment and resilience fuel the achievement of ambitious goals

The boys didn’t give up, though the task loomed large ahead of them. They made the commitment to give their time to training each week and they did so consistently.

As the weeks went by, their fitness improved and runs that once taxed them immensely soon became the norm. The bar continued to rise.

Quarum ambarum rerum cum medicinam pollicetur, luxuriae licentiam pollicetur. Quod autem in homine praestantissimum atque optimum est, id deseruit.

Equidem e Cn. Quid enim tanto opus est instrumento in optimis artibus comparandis? Verum esto: verbum ipsum voluptatis non habet dignitatem, nec nos fortasse intellegimus. Si verbum sequimur, primum longius verbum praepositum quam bonum. Inde sermone vario sex illa a Dipylo stadia confecimus. Hinc ceteri particulas arripere conati suam quisque videro voluit afferre sententiam.

Ergo id est convenienter naturae vivere, a natura discedere. Eaedem enim utilitates poterunt eas labefactare atque pervertere. Quae similitudo in genere etiam humano apparet. Istam voluptatem, inquit, Epicurus ignorat? Eaedem enim utilitates poterunt eas labefactare atque pervertere.

This is a call to action. Nisi autem rerum natura perspecta erit, nullo modo poterimus sensuum iudicia defendere. Non laboro, inquit, de nomine.
