Today is my birthday, my 50th.
I celebrated with a run as I like to do on my birthday. It was awesome.
I ran through bush, bird song being the only other sound I heard. It was still. Cold. And almost raining. It was also straight up until I hit this spot beside Lake Dispute.
A big tough hill, but I ran all the way over it. I might be literally over the hill, but certainly not figuratively!
I found a cute wee musterer’s hut settled amongst the matagouri and bush. I preferred the musterer’s accommodation we had the other night, but this was authentically New Zealand..
Then an easy downhill track through a paddock of cattle beast, who carried on eating as I ran by.
Traversing Moke Lake, around the head and back along the shingle road until I met my support person. He had bananas and a peanut slab!
