Last weekend Helen and I went up north with some guys from her work. They were going mountain biking and I was going for a run. My bike wasn't working and they needed someone to shuttle cars.
I did an out and back run from Whakapapa Village to Upper Tama Lake. It was just over 19km and I did it in about 2 hours 40 minutes. I ran most of it, but there were a few places where I had to walk – either it was too steep or the track was too rough. I felt pretty good the whole time and had an awesome run. On the way back I went a slightly different way, which took me past Taranaki Falls.
