Thanks for the support for a great run

Thanks to everyone for their kind words, advice, contributions, and moral support.  Together we did two things:

  • Raise nearly $1,200 for the NZ Breast Cancer Foundation
  • Help me complete my first marathon

Did I say “first”?  Yes, I did.  While many people have told me that 4:27 is pretty good for a first marathon, my goal is 3:59:59.  So, I’m running another in May.  May 5th is the Rotorura (Rotovegas) marathon.

Thanks again,

Get out there!!

OnOn!!

 

Oh, it isn’t too late to contribute to the NZ Breast Cancer Foundation.

1,000 Km This Year

Jan 26, 16 1,000 Km This Year

My goal of 1,000 km is on schedule.  As of 25 January I should have run 68.5 km.  I have run 67.6.  So, I am down about 800 meters; which really isn’t too bad.  the past two weekends, I had been running a 10 km route I made.  But I took Saturday off last week.  Since I hyper-extended my knee, it hurts a little bit to run.  Actually it hurts more to walk than to run.

In theory, if I run about 5 km after work one day a week, then run one of the Auckland hashes, then a 10 k on Saturday, I will have about 23 – 24 km a week.
