Comments In NZ for 3 months Miyuki decided to look for races to run, allowing me to train and her to regain some focus and motivation .
Kawerau being couple of Km away from the place we had plus having a transportation , we decided to give it a go as the entry fee was very reasonable.
Online registration was smooth . We received a Confirmation by EMail . Time to train for some Hills .
We had rain night before but on D day if rains had stopped it was chilly and trail promised to be muddy .
On morning the atmosphere was very friendly yet competitive as a Full team came all along from OZ.

Race :
The 4 km uphill killed my quads but a very good training
if the downhill was muddy yet manageable with some slippery parts .
A good fun race , Winner had a killer time sub 1 h something
I was happy with my 1h 32

Yet it confirmed to me that one can run fast without any excuses .
Just train 😉
