Distance today = 41.91 km; Total distance = 1715.45 km; Location = Hamilton –  37 47.795′ S, 175 17.609′ E; Start time = 0937, Finish time = 1626


Today was different, as I was joined by members of Hamilton’s second oldest running club who came out to join me for the final 20 km or so of the run. I will report more on today’s run, either later tonight or in tomorrow’s blog. In the meantime, we’re off to have dinner and a few drinks with members of the club.

On a technical note, I forgot to turn my GPS watch back on after a short stop, resulting in me having to remeasure 740 metres of the run. This has been added back in, but does not show up in the Garmin records (which show 740 m less than the official distance for the day). Luckily, it is only the second time I’ve made this sort of mistake.

Finally, many thanks to June and Joe at the Aspen Manor Hotel in Hamilton for the accommodation tonight. Anyone passing through Hamilton should stay here. It’s centrally located, with everything you might need.
