Photo: FELICITY REID By LISA HONEYBONE I m a quitter. Well at least when it comes to diets and exer- cise. I m one of those people who thinks it s okay to have that chocolate bar or takeaway on the weekend because my diet starts on Monday. Every diet starts on a Monday. Trouble is they end by Tuesday. So when the boss asked for a volunteer to blog about training for Round the Bays I stuck my hand up all too quick. I ve been wanting to get into shape for ages but I can t seem to stick with anything. I want instant results in order to get the motiv- ation to keep going. So I thought that by volunteering to write this blog I might have found my new motiv- ation -- shame. If I don t stick to a weekly training schedule and get into shape to run that 8.4km then I m not only letting myself down but all you readers are going to know about it. So over the next few weeks I hope you ll follow me as I (hopefully) prog- ress from not being able to run to the letterbox (okay slight exagger- ation) to running Round the Bays on March 18. The Ports of Auckland Round the Bays has been an annual event in Auck- land since 1972 when the Auckland Joggers Club initiated it. It has grown to be one of the world s largest fun-runs with nearly 40,000 registered run- ners and an estimated 70,000 participants. Today the event is a collaboration between the Auckland Joggers Club and Fairfax Media parent company of Sub- urban Newspapers and the Nor-west News. The course starts in Quay St in the city and finishes on the water- front at St Heliers Bay. Entry is $15 for adults and $10 for children 16-years-old and under. So to those of you who might also be training for Round the Bays, good on you. Hopefully I can share some useful tips and information along the way and likewise feel free to share any advice you might have with me! Visit nor-westnews. co.nz to follow my blog and comment online.
