Jemma Griffin: The passionate pillar of strength for Nedd Brockmans 4000km run across Australia The Compeat Waffle

    • Health & Fitness

Meet Jemma Griffin, the passionate pillar of strength and support for Nedd Brockmans arduous journey across Australia.

A journey that spanned 4000km from Cottlesloe in Perth through the Nullarbor Plain all the way to Bondi in Sydney, in an effort to raise money for We Are Mobilise. A charity that aims to unite the youth of Australia to develop solutions and provide assistance for those experiencing homelessness.

And ultimately this incredible feat raised 2.5 million dollars!

As an exercise physiologist and an incredible runner herself, Jemma is no stranger to the trials and tribulations of running, exercise, and marathons. In this ep of the waffle, Jemma speaks eloquently about what it was like to organise, support, and experience this run, in an incredibly isolated place in Australia.

Days upon days of long straight roads, a skyline of sparse bush, no trees, and little access to food and water - She speaks about how her relationship with Nedd, food, and body changed over the course of this journey. And how communication with her partner, the rest of the team, and most importantly herself was the key to this run's success.

It's an incredibly raw and vulnerable account that we adored being able to listen to and bring to you.
