Christer Malm, a contact of Ali's, took some photos of the ultra-long, in Boden. Don't I look like I'm having fun? I bet this was on the fourth lap =)
I entered, and got in to, the Mt Washington road race this June. I don't know why I was quite so excited to get in, because I have a niggling feeling that it may actually suck, a lot, to run up a 12% grade for 7.6 miles. Why was I so excited? Tell ya what, though, I am SO getting a Vermonster, and attempting to finish the whole thing on my own, when that race is over!
Totally unrelated, I was cleaning and organizing some stuff on my computer and found a cache of photos from New Zealand in 2005, and that place is so beautiful, I felt I should post some of the photos up here. Enjoy!
The Takitimu mt range.
Same view, different light.
Sunset on the Coromandel peninsula.
Rainbow over the mountains by Wanaka.
Looking inland at Kaikoura.
A beautiful place, but plenty of clearcuts to go along with the majestic views.
Boulders on moeraki beach.
The snow farm.
Franz Joseph glacier, or at least where it used to be 30 years ago.
