Abel Tasman Inland Photo Journal

While the main MEC crew were burning up the roads of Onehunga I was down in Abel Tasman National Park with a free run pass (friends we were down with were in the official Coastal Classic run).

I used my pass to run an out an back from Marahau up the inland track to a turn around when time was up. Made it as far as Porters Rock. Gorgeous running conditions, though the inland tracks were a little more ‘backcountry’ than I had anticpated making for slow progress (many +10min/km).

I’ll only be a couple of hours, promise. In the words of Nixon “I was not lying. I said things that later on seemed to be untrue”

Log, log, it’s wet, it’s slippery, it’s wood
