This week I will be running on the Mornington Peninsula, one of my favourite places to do so. Thankfully, this is one of the rare parts of south-eastern Australia that isn’t directly affected by bush fires. In fact, it’s raining here today. Hopefully some of this rain will make its way to where it’s really needed and help alleviate the fires.

I’ve already chalked up 120 km in the first six days of the year, which is one of my best starts to a year. It should see me well placed for a decent showing in the King Island 32 km race in March.

Below are a few photos from this date in 2012, when I had only just commenced my run around the world. These were taken as I approached Dunedin in New Zealand. It was the most southerly point I ever reached during the whole world run.
