NEW WORLD RECORD to beat CANCER!
RAW BEATS CANCER! Congratulations to a couple in their 60’s who have finished running a marathon every day for 366 consecutive days to set a new world record. Breast cancer survivor Janette Murray-Wakelin, 64, and Alan Murray, 68, ran 366 consecutive marathons with no days off, covering almost 10,000 miles as they ran around the Australia mainland. Janette was diagnosed with highly aggressive carcinoma breast cancer in 2001 and given 6 months to live. She immediately began eating raw foods and eventually wrote a book about the power of raw to cure cancer.
Janette and Alan started each day at 4.00 am eating 10 bananas, a grapefruit and a date smoothie for breakfast, then another 10 bananas at 8.00 am, a green smoothie at 9am, a fruit salad at the 19-mile mark, three oranges at the 23-mile mark, before finishing at 4pm and eating an avocado, vegetable juice and a salad for dinner. The pair broke the world record of 365 marathons in a year set in 2001 by a Belgian, Stefaan Engles. YOU MIGHT ASK – “WHY RUN AROUND AUSTRALIA?” WE ASKED OURSELVES – How can we share the information and experiences we have gained through conscious living during the past decade, so that others may make their own informed lifestyle choices that will make a difference to their health, the health of their family and future generations, the health of their community, the health and well being of the animals, and ultimately, the health of our precious Earth where we live? What can we do to inspire and motivate conscious lifestyle choices, to promote kindness and compassion for all living beings and to raise awareness for a sustainable future? THE ANSWER – We can lead by example, walk (or in this case) run the talk. By running a marathon distance together per day , every day for a year around Australia, we hope to inspire others to believe in themselves, to follow their dreams, and to achieve their goals through making more conscious lifestyle choices. We can be living proof of what can be achieved by making conscious life choices. While we are Running around Australia during the year 2013, we will have the opportunity to show that by eating raw living plant-based foods, we are healthier, more physically fit and have unlimited energy at beyond 60 years of age than in our earlier years, including when we ran the length of New Zealand 13 years previously. Inspiration is what motivates people to ‘Never Stop Pushing’ for what they believe in and for what they want to achieve. We also had the opportunity to raise awareness and funds for selected charitable groups instrumental in making a difference to the health and welfare of the people, animals and environmental sustainability within Australia and worldwide. We believe that the survival of our (human) species is dependent on our kindness, compassion and caring for all living beings, and that this is achieved by making conscious lifestyle choices. By doing so, we can make a difference. ———- SOURCE: Running around Australia
