What did your last 24 hours look like?

The past 24 hours was a good one. A fairly typical one and a good one as many of them are…

29th of the month is sunrise day of course and on that day I took a long run into work to view it. But sunrise day should be about nice breakfast, reflection and a good spot so did it again on the 30th and 31st!

  • 6.00am wake up (or almost-sleep in for me with the late sunrise just before daylight savings)
  • 40 minute / 15km ride towards Williamstown for a seaside view of the sunrise
  • two Vietnamese cold roles (dumpstered from 5 days previous), apple pie slice (donated from week before) and pre-bubbled bottle of soda-stream for breakfast with a fine mist of rain, truck noises and pollution (see pick)

    the sunrise

  • ride towards work via an old favourite dumpster spot that produced many fruits of bread, rolls and buns – sample and taste test to make sure safe! yum…
  • a lovely day of work – finalising presentations and hearing wonderful stories of new presenters delivering the 1.4 Billion Reasons for Youth and getting that magical feeling of enlightening others and contributing to the end of extreme poverty…
  • lunch of date and apricot bread from 2nd floor bin (in paper bag) where I refill my water bottle; two day old sushi and dumpstered sandwich toasted so lettuce and tomato was a little less ‘tangy’
  • ride to South Yarra and meeting with web developer for amazing new facebook app
  • ride towards Belgrave… stop off at back of bakery for half cold mini sausage roll (dumpstered) and fuelled me up for the ride through to Ferntree Gully – feeling good so pushed onto Belgrave in the mountains and topped up a hungry body after a 50km ride with a special spot I know there of hot-cross buns, London bun and a little biscuit (dumpstered)
  • great RESULTS meeting about micro-finance where 670 million people have been positively affected by micro-finance in the past decade
  • we were also fortunate to have a visit from former federal MP Jason Wood who gave us some great insights into how to interact with MPs on matters that matter! Earlier in the day I also set up a face-to-face meeting with my federal MP Kelvin Thomson next Wednesday
  • cake and water bottle fill up and back on the bike down to Upway train station where I got as last little snack of a yummy half lamington and quarter magnum in the bit next to the platform
  • hour train ride back into town and then a 10km trip home to Coburg

Overall – ended some poverty, ate like a king for free that would have all been wasted, rode 80km and went to bed very happy and content as I usually do everyday! (sugar free day today though after soooo many buns and cakes!)
