colour run family

We are the GudLanges, or more to the point David, Avalon and Marla Lange and me, Kelly Gudgeon. As a little family we have made the bold (or mad) decision to take our two girls, now aged 5 and 3, on a trip around Australia in a tiny pop up caravan.
We started this journey just after Christmas 2015 and have no real time frames or travel plans, at the moment we are about to head across the Nullarbor to where we will spend a couple of months in Kalgoorlie as a first work stop.
This blog is to share with anyone interested in the amazing, the madness, and the trials that such a trip presents. I also write about my experiences training for various events. I recently completed my first ultra marathon and am now just trying to get back on track before I start training for my first road marathon.
So if you are interested, jump in and buckle up.
