Matamata Chronicle - - Your Paper, Your Place -

It has ac­tu­ally taken me a cou­ple of days to catch my breath af­ter in­ter­view­ing Mike Bos­ton. Ev­ery time I think about what he has just ac­com­plished or what the crazy man is about to em­bark on, I ac­tu­ally feel tired!

Some peo­ple pos­sess some­thing ex­tra­or­di­nary in­side of them and Bos­ton is one of them.

I think the fact that he is now train­ing (half a marathon a day) in prepa­ra­tion for his next hike which will be a world-first is proof of that.

He most cer­tainly has crazy com­pany to push him on but isn’t it in­cred­i­ble know­ing that our coun­try is speckled with this sort of zest for life?

In a place like Mata­mata we have a guy, dressed in uni­form most days, just itch­ing to test his phys­i­cal bound­aries – in fact to say test is a gross un­der­state­ment.

He al­most en­joys knock­ing on death’s door and kick­ing through it! Gasp. What a hu­man! All the best Bos­ton, Mata­mata is root­ing for you.
