You would think that I would learn - I don't train for runs and therefore when the application forms are being circulated I should politely pass them on but nooooooooo..... I signed up with a bunch of Hawkins guys to do the 2009 HSBC Round the Bays Run from the city all the way round the bay funnily enough to St Heliers...which is far enough in the car I can tell you.

Well actually its only 8.5 kilometres but after a bottle of wine the night before it seems far!!

I did manage to do it all without stopping and in a half decent time though and I suppose in retrospect it was fun - I especially like the BBQ and free wine part at the end!

Apparently 70,000 people took part and it was disorganised chaos which added to the fun. It was also good to have sunshine and a distinct lack of Arthurs Seat which helps immensely!!!
