Well done Colin - great that you enjoyed it too!
Ceal - I think we all want to see you race again - you do some awesome training!
Mick - I love the autumn colours too - here in Auckland, our seasons aren't as dramatic, but they are so noticeable overseas.
Diana - it is also a good thing that you have started your running in later years - so much to look forward to and see just what you can get out of yourself.
I went for a long walk on the Hilary trail yesterday with husband, son and Mae. Took a stick this time as I didn't want to fall. It's called a trail, but there is much scrabbling over trees roots, streams, mud, and holding on to things so you don't fall down a cliff!
The boys carried drinks and a few snacks for halfway where we reach a stand of huge Kauris - they used to use them for the masts of sailing ships. It is an awesome spot - very beautiful.
Came home and spent the rest of the day with the grand children. Avery beautiful sunny day - lovely start to summer though there was still a little chill in the wind.
I have cataract surgery on my right eye on Tuesday so am hoping I am going to see a lot more clearly afterwards. My driving might improve
