Had a great little outing today at the Peak 2 Peak multi sport race in Queenstown.
Warming up with George, Frankton Arm
Start of the run at Queenstown beach, sorting out my tangled bib
Team Ferg Burger got off to a pretty good start, with Neil (who I never meet!) come 3rd off the ski and Marty quickly jumped into 1st place on the down hill mt bike down the Remarks road. Mike paddled hard to hold onto our slight lead over the highly fancied and defending champs the Outside Sports team. Continue reading
Actually the little guy loves it!
Yesterday day afternoon Tim, George and I got a quick lap on the west slopes off the back of Cheeseman ski area, it was pretty good. The sun was out and we got some fun turns.
Thanks to Tim for the video and photo!
I’m in! The hardest part of the Kepler Challenge is now behind me after I successful entered my self and Jane at 0630 on Saturday. Sounds like some folks had a total nightmare, with the Kepler web site freaking out and frezzing with all the traffic.
Now for the fun part!
Welcome to the ghost town that is my poorly maintained blog………….
I have been really slack with this lately, mostly due to being super busy with work and skiing when and were possible. I have also been running a little here and there. there has been heaps happening- Dynafit and ARVA sales are going off and iclimb.co.nz is also super busy, so work wise things are going great. Its been well over 2 months since I made a coffee, mopped a floor, or cleaned a toilet for wage. I am in no way above any of those things, but the little dream of being self employed is finally gathering some steam!
The skiing has been great for June. I won’t post any photos as I have been posting a heap over on the Dynafit NZ face book page- check it out and become a fan. Jane and I were down in Queenstown for the Dynafit co sponsored Skin to the Summit race this week. It was super fun, but had a disappointing turn out, but what do you expect for a race at 730am in a Tuesday?
Running has been ticking over. Big news on that front is that I will be running for Salomon this coming summer! It pretty exciting, as I am a huge fan of Salomon Running shoes, so it will be nice to get a few free pairs. I’ll post more details on this later, but thanks heaps to Salomon NZ and Holly!
Off to Wanaka tomorrow for the mountain film festival. Jane has some of her art on display there. I’ll hav ea bunch of Dynafit gear, so if by chance you read this and are in teh Wanaka area an dwant to demo soem gear get in touch.
We also have a dog- Gorge. We got him from the pound in Ashburton and he loves to run and seems to enjoy skiing also.
Until next time……..
