"I just wanted to do 100% - the best that I could for myself and for my body to be able to change that prognosis and that happened. Within the 6 months I was basically given to 'live', I changed that around and continued to really live."


Alan and Janette Murray wanted to inspire and motivate conscious lifestyle choices, to promote kindness and compassion for all living beings and to raise environmental awareness for a sustainable future. In 2013, they decided to run around Australia, 15,782km, running 366 marathons (43 km) each in 366 days, no days off. On January 1, 2014, they set a new World Record as the only couple over the age of 60 fuelled entirely on raw fruit and veg, wearing barefoot shoes, to run 366 consecutive marathons while Running Raw Around Australia.

Since then, Alan and Janette have created a documentary called "RAW the Documentary" and authored the book "Running Out of Time" documenting their huge accomplishment. In addition, Janette is also the author of "Raw Can Cure Cancer" which talks about her 6 month prognosis of breast cancer and how she was able to beat it by eating a raw vegan diet.

In this episode, I speak with this inspiring couple about their journey Running Raw Around Australia, what they ate, how to get into ultra running, and how Janette beat cancer.
