Hagley Park; sun, rain, hail, or even snow is perhaps Christchurch’s best asset. Back in June we experienced two weeks of brutally cold weather, Christchurch had definitely turned down the temperature gauge. For me and many others,or passion for sport don’t stop even in the worst conditions. You might think it’s madness, i think it’s just plain fun.
So here’s a quick video I made, showing off Hagley Park in its wintery glory.
The 2011 New Zealand National Road Relays were held early September in Auckland. The course was a savage 77km loop around the outskirts of the Auckland region. Long flats, gut retching hills, and epic descents were some of the treats which made this race so interesting.
I was racing for New Brighton’s Senior Men’s A team. After achieving 3rd place last year (2010) in New Plymouth, our relatively mixed ability team needed to step up. We had a huge range of runners, from a 65+ year old campaigners, to a 16 year old newbie. Overall we placed 7th, which was a great result considering the team’s make up.
As I drove around following the race, I managed to stick my arm out of the window here and there to capture some footage… Enjoy.
Amy, you were stupid and dumb, but boy could you sing. I’m going to miss the huskiness of your soulful voice. RIP.
10/10 for the voice
