Event #10 & #11 Thank you!

The month of November has been a stunner! Central Otago has bought out the 25+ degree days, a bustling active community, knocked of two running events and I’ve been preparing to head up to Auckland next week for my final 12th run for 2018 – the Speights West Coaster Trail Run at Bethells Beach –…

#7 TRAQ Jacks Point Half Marathon

If you are looking for a challenge, this half marathon is definitely for you, the first 10 kilometers alone were hard enough!

Event #3 & #4, April ’17

Four events have passed and we’re almost at #5 !

Two months in preparation – since our last event, running/training almost daily, spending time with my friends, competing in other challenges such as The Mule (highly…

Taking four weeks out to do this is exactly what the project, and I needed. Always reminding ย yourself that you…
