I’ve really been loving the running here in Devonport (northern suburb of Auckland). It seems that the newer the environment, the easier it is to run faster. I had no trouble today churning out 5:30 kilometres without even trying, despite a reasonably hilly run.

Five years ago today I was running with Kate Day through Cootamundra. The second photo sees us running into the town. Kate had also run with me the day before and the day after, and also a couple of times nearer the finish. All up she clocked nearly 100 km with me during the world run. Kate was also my support crew two years ago when I did a 12 hour run in Centennial Park.
