The 6th Febraury, was not only the day we commemorate The treaty of Waitangi, it was also the day, I ran along side Ebony, Jorja and Madaline in the Kaponga Lions club fun run. There are two distances, 5 and 10km that start from the the mountain gate or for the 5km it was from Hollard Gardens ( A beautiful place to visit with your family and friends) . The morning started out with bright sun and a warm wind, after taking a bus to the Mountain gates in Kaponga for the 10km run, reality started to kick in, I was about to run 10 kilometres. Before I knew it, I was 5 kilometres down and had five to go! Thanks to the lions club, I happily hydrated and then suddenly, I was was crossing the finish line in a blaze of glory. This event was such an amazing and well organised day and with a very successful outcome in people, great weather, loads of spot prizes and the best thing of all, was it all being for a good cause.
