About a month ago Paul came up with the wild idea of entering a family team to run the Great Lakes Relay in February. We all got excited/deluded and commited ourselves to running sections of the entire length of Lake Taupo. What was I thinking??? I'm not a runner. In fact I hate running. The last time I took up running I gave up after three months because my toenails fell off, I got shin splints, approximately 1,078 blisters and perpetual foot cramps.
Anyway, I guess I just got caught up in the hype of it all. So far our team consists of Paul, Nakita, Tania, Kim, Nigel, Sam, Jonthan, Me and a few others I'm not sure of. Come February 19th at 2am Paul will begin the first leg of the 155km course around Lake Taupo.
On a good note - I do happen to own the best running shoes in the world which have changed my LIFE! I love them. Asics Gel 1250. Training has begun and so far no shin splints, no foot cramps, no blisters - and I still own all my toenails.
