Christchurch Mail - - YOUR LOCAL NEWS -

Be care­ful what you wish for. Last week I wrote about the up­com­ing 8 week chal­lenge, which I’m all signed up for, and how I’m go­ing to be joined by a cou­ple of co­work­ers.

I hadn’t bet on the fact that one of those reporters is mad keen on the project, and it’s tak­ing on a life of its own.

So not only are we signed up for the 8 week chal­lenge, we’re also signed up for the Pe­ga­sus Fun Run on Oc­to­ber 1, which will be a warm up for the Summer Starter in Novem­ber.

I’m not sure if you re­mem­ber, but I re­ally, re­ally don’t like run­ning. I’m not built for it, I can’t do it, and I’d rather dead­lift my trainer than run around the block.

But I’m in deep now. So, expect to see some great wee up­dates from Kim, Emma and me over com­ing weeks - no doubt ac­com­pa­nied by very em­bar­rass­ing photos - of our jour­ney over the next 8 weeks. It’s go­ing to be fun, right? Be­cause mis­ery just loves a bit of com­pany.
