Ready to race ... mostly.


We are just two days out from com­plet­ing our first chal­lenge – the Heller’s Pe­ga­sus Fun Run.

My six year old son is ex­cited. He’s run­ning it with me along with my four year old daugh­ter and the baby – although he gets an easy ride. My son tells me he plans on win­ning it. I’m not sure where he gets that from...

It’s not over yet, though; we are still only 4 weeks into the Snap Fit­ness 8 week chal­lenge.

We had our team per­sonal train­ing ses­sion on Fri­day af­ter­noon, af­ter a busy morn­ing hang­ing out in the Hurunui. We’d been work­ing from the ex­cep­tional Lit­tle Vin­tage Es­presso cafe and catch­ing up with amaz­ing peo­ple. There were co­pi­ous amounts of hot drinks and quite pos­si­bly the best blue­berry and white choco­late muffins any­where. Not ex­actly great fuel for a work out.

It was a tough cir­cuit-type train­ing, and Ge­off knew how how to get the best out of us. He made us com­pete against each other.

We im­me­di­ately slipped into our roles. Emma, al­ways po­lite and in­dus­tri­ous. I just want to be first. And Shan­non threat­ened all three of us – Ge­off in­cluded – with DCMs (Don’t come Mon­day) although we did get fired fewer times than last weeks tread­mill chal­lenge.

On the whole though, we are en­joy­ing this. We are get­ting stronger, we are feel­ing fit­ter and we are hav­ing fun!
