Last weekend Chelsea and I braved the weather and headed out to Ohaupo to participate in the first race in the 2017 Summer Series.
With a gentle fog settling over the countryside and excited running gathering the atmosphere was amazing. Being surrounded by like minded people and so much positivity is always a great feeling and a nice way to start the day.
It felt great to be pounding the tarmac and good to get back into the race atmosphere. It was that night that I went home and looked into seriously booking the New Plymouth - Mountain to Surf Marathon.
I don't know if it's a good thing or not but I have signed up and am planning on running my first marathon for 2017 in two weeks time.
The training has been going really well. Each week I have been increasing the distance with my first long run of 27km being completed yesterday. It was tougher than a hobbits foot but I did it.
Easy week this weekend planned then marathon the following.
