Mick - think it's neat that you have your Bonnie to ride when resting up a bit - still getting a blast in the great outdoors!
Busbar - great to be able to follow up your marathon with a very good half!
Columba - great description of the art you went to see and pleased that you didn't have to stay out too long on your marshaling duties!
Graham - not nice, but hopefully it was just the flu injection. I had one this year, and it didn't sit well with me either!
john bateman - have you had your eyes checked lately? I was having a bit of trouble working out levels before I had my cataract operations - whole new world!
Torque Steer - it was a case of having to be sensible or I wouldn't have been able to go the distance. Feel like I have run a marathon! Yes, thought I'd better spend the money or the voucher would sit in a drawer and that would be the end of it.
I know it was a very soft time to receive a prize for it, but I was happy to take it anyway!
It was a big event, nearly 10,000 runners from around the world spread over the marathon, half marathon and 10km.
I live in the North Island so not affected by the earthquake although Wellington was. Queenstown is very near the bottom of the South Island so wasn't hurt by the earthquakes either. I would hate to see what would happen if it did! It is the jewel of our crown as far as tourism goes - very mountainous and picturesque! You couldn't take a bad photo of the scenery down there!
