Adventure Time: Running Lower Hutt Fire Breaks

Lower Hutt, Wellington is small city surrounded by hills covered in regenerating native bush and gorse. The hills have wide tracks bulldozed in them to limit the damage of bush fires.

When it’s dry the fire breaks make great running tracks. The views of Wellington and Wainui are the best you will get. Photos from my trusty iPhone.

Adventure Time: Running up Mount Manaia, Whangarei

After a huge weekend at a Pedey’s wedding, Matt and I went for a run up Mount Manaia, Whangarei Heads, New Zealand. We were staying at a hired house which sat in a quiet bay just out of the shadow of Mount Manaia. This turns out to be pretty lucky, as local Maori believe living in the shadow of the mountain is totally bad buzz. The views from the top were out of control!

Check out the run data on the Nike Page.
