Bigger Than The Running

It’s been a big one.

For Brewsters Running, this week has held a lot of excitement for a number of reasons.

We’ve created new partnerships, taken on new clients with exciting running projects, seen current clients come to the final days of their big goals and we’ve even had a baby. Well… to be more clear, my wife had a baby. Yep, our 6th child and 5th son was born two weeks early. The good news is that little Solomon is trucking along nicely, as is his amazing Mum. His Dad is more than a little smitten with his new little trooper.

Most of you will already know about Donna Campisi and her incredibly inspiring story ( Well, it all comes to a head this Sunday morning with the Melbourne Marathon.  If you are planning on being at the Marathon, be sure to say come and say hello if you see us on the road or at the finish line and cheer on Donna.

Apart from Donna, I’ve been coaching or assisting a number of people in their preparation for the marathon and it gives me great pride to see these people find themselves at the start line of a long held goal of theirs. Each of these people, in fact, every person that will toe that start line, will have their own amazing story that could fill a book. I draw great pleasure from playing a small part in their story and watching it all unfold through a challenge that they have set, prepared for and executed.

This week also hosts the Great Ocean Walk 100km race and again we are very proud to have contributed to the preparation that will see someone potentially run beyond what they previously thought was possible. They say that in a race there can be only one winner…  I’m not sure about that. Sometimes there are winners before the race has even been run.

I sometimes wonder why the universe dishes up so much action in one particular week and then realize that this can only happen because we live a life that is full. Full with the activity that moves us toward and into the things that make us come alive. Both Chris and I love our roles in Brewsters Running. We feel very fortunate to be able to be involved in people’s stories, and to witness things that are bigger than the running and sometimes bigger than we can even imagine.


Run long my little Solomon,


Shaun Brewster.
