Justine Babitsch's inspirational marathon campaign came to an end yesterday after she crossed the finish line at Lake Weeroona.
"It really good to finally complete it and I am really, really happy with what I achieved," she said.
"It was a little better than what I expected and I paced myself but I did hit a wall at 36km mark and start cramping and it a wall," she said.
"But I managed to get through that okay and pulled up really well so I am thrilled really."
Justine's goal was not only to complete the 42km marathon, but raise money for a cause dear to her heart - Reclink Australia, a non-for profit organisation that provides sport and art programs to disadvantaged Australians to create socially inclusive, life-changing opportunities.
Justine hoped to raise $1000 for sporting equipment for children with a disability, the total is now sitting at $1156.
"It has blown me away with how much money we have raised and I want to thank everyone," she said.
"This has all been fantastic really."
Justine said she also received an unexpected and inspiring phone call from Australian long-distance runner and physical health consultant Steve Monegetti wishing her luck the night before.
She said the support she received was overwhelming.
"I got lots of local support and I am really appreciative of the community and support I received and had an amazing crew and I couldn't have done this without them, it was a team effort really," she said.
"I really want to thank everyone that was there, I had people run and ride it with me and I had fantastic support when I got to the lake."
