A decision as good as any other,and don’t eat the blackberrys….

13 Feb

Yes..it IS a woman’s perogative to change her mind. I am (once again) not doing the Mota-bloody-tapu. The clincher was, the nearly two thousand dollar airfare to get us both there, via Christchurch, flying 2.5 hours each way! The extraordinary cost for a domestic flight  feels so wrong…especially for a run I have not trained for and Mr D cant even do.

This year so far is not in good shape. Two race’s I have not done. Hmmm, luckily it is early on and there is time for big improvement. I went for a run around the perimeter fence of Karori sanctuary. It was not a good run. I walked a fair bit through the two foresty downhill sections as it was pretty slippery. My gps shows the run is 9k, but I think it is longer because the gps loose’s sattilite through the bush sections. Anyone know exactly? (Gosh, yeah-I’d really love it if someone told me it was 15k…wahoo…). During the run, I listened to classical music, met a black goat (white hooves) and I scared a bunny. I also got massively scratched by blackberry when I hid in some deep thicket to have a pee…(do not eat the blackberrys..)
