With the Christchurch City to Surf happening in just under 2 weeks I’m hoping that either your training programme is well underway or you’ve decided to drive the 12km instead. The latter is my preferred mode of transport but there’s…
Well, it’s official. We didn’t learn from last year and so history repeated itself with more aching calf muscles, stretched hammies and bad cases of the stitch as we pushed ourselves to the outer limits of sanity with a 12km run from Cathedral Square to QEII as part of the annual Christchurch Star City to Surf.
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.
