Hands up everyone who enjoys running? Ok you two freaks at the back of the room can put your hands down. I mean seriously it doesn’t seem too smart especially when technology has saved us from the bone-jarring, sweat-inducing past-time known as jogging (or is it yogging, maybe a soft ‘j’) – apparently you just run for an extended period of time, wild huh?!? But that’s exactly what thousands of happy campers will be doing early Sunday morning, 29 March 2009 for the annual City to Surf. This is a 12km run from the Christchurch city square out to QEII. There is a shorter 6km option for the smart ones leaving from Porritt Park. I wonder if Kings of Leon will be there, after their gig the night before??
I know Sunday morning for many consists of a lazy lie-in and cups of tea in bed but not for a bunch of fierce amazonian women out to prove a point early Sunday morning.
