Hey everybody, today I am resting as my body got pretty destroyed from the run. I would again just like to thank everyone who has supported me during this sea2summit attempt and followed my story. Tomorrow I will be heading up the mountain so I will be out of touch for the majority of the time, so this is my chance to call for some donations towards the cause that this is all for.

Together, the Mental Health Foundation of New Zealand and Movember are working to create awareness of depression and anxiety, and to break down stigma – which can sometimes prevent men from speaking up and getting the help they need.
Facts:
One in six New Zealanders will experience a major depressive disorder at some time in their life.
One in seven young New Zealanders experience a major depressive disorder before the age of 24.
Depression increases the risk of suicide by 20 times.

Below is a link to a fundraising page set up to keep track of donation over this and future adventures. So if you have shared this journey with me please help get the ball rolling and give with your heart.

I am going to leave you with the Robert Frost poem that got everything started for me.

The road not taken

TWO roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth; 5

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same, 10

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back. 15

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference. 20
