RUNNING 10KM AT WELLINGTON ROUND THE BAYS 2020
I’m back! I’ve still been running my training runs as per the plan, just that I haven’t had the time to write about each of them. Today however, I reached a personal milestone. It really put my struggle in perspective. Today also marks my longest run to date. Ever. Well… I’ve been logging my runs […]
The rain set in for a good part of the afternoon, but seemed to clear a little after 5:30 which I took the opportunity to sneak my run in. 20minutes non stop jogging. Vicky came as well, but only walked, as she only runs if she’s being chased! The loop around I did was my […]
The first of what I suspect will be many EVENING training run. Purely and simply, it was too hot during the day AND I had an after-work function. So it was easier just to run later than I normally do. Seemed to go okay. Definitely getting easier, but still only running mid 2km in distance […]

CLASSIC MINI LE 1980
I own a 1980 Mini LE, built in New Zealand. Over the time I’ve had it, I’ve nearly replaced every working part.
In 2018, I began the long and challenging journey of removing the A-series engine and replacing it with something more reliable. And why not go all the way and put in the best of engine conversions for the Mini – a Honday B16a VTec.
