|An earth shattering 200m climb barely 1KM from |
the car soon dampened my enthusiasm for the great
outdoors but the view once
I'd caught my breath ... oh my!
Our local sports retailer doesn’t have a fantastic selection of running shoes at the best of times which is why I buy online whenever possible. On Saturday though I had no other choice given the trail running fervour coursing through my veins. Or should I say blazing through … Masahiro and Sage Canaday (my new best friend) at the Tarawera Ultra had inspired me and I’d planned my first trail run the next day.
At 10.5KM the Blue Lake presented herself to |
me in all her glory. I wish Masahiro had seen this
lake on a day like today. Now to run around it
just as the Ultra boys and girls had done a week earlier
Half way around. I'm enjoying this trail running.|
Lots of breaks whenever I want! Took this one
sitting on a bench when no one was looking
|7KM round the lake. 17.5KM done with the home trip |
yet to do. I feel great though with each corner
revealing something new. Shoot me!
I'm becoming a GREENIE!
|And the shoes I settled on for this final frontier. |
The Nike Zoom Wildhorse coming in at 8.4oz. Bought
with the full blessing of my wife sensing no doubt
there was a good chance I'd get lost
What a great week of running. I loved every minute of it and cant wait for the new week. I really hope you are all enjoying the journey as much as I am at the moment. Long may it last.
