Training Run Up Little Mount Peel

by Kelly on July 13, 2009

I thought I would get a little run in before I started my days work… just 20 minutes drive North of Geraldine lies Little Mount Peel, 4293 ft (1303 m) which is great training ground for my climb up Mount Cook!  I wove my way up the track and reached the summit in about 1hr 15min.  For those of you who’d rather a stroll it’s a nice day’s hiking in NZ.  Got some fantastic views of the Canterbury plains from the summit, as you can see in the pics above.  The track was a bit muddy in places, you really have to watch your footing when running and grasshoppers were jumping at me from all angles, very cool little critters!

If you haven’t read about my big mission to climb Mount Cook for Arthritis NZ in December this year, the TImaru Herald and The Press ran a great story on it the other day you can check out the article at www.bit.ly/peD5w.  If you would like to support this cause by making a donation to Arthritis NZ you can do by clicking on this link https://secure.flo2cash.co.nz/donations/arthritis/donate.aspx.  When donating,please select ‘Event’ under ‘Appeal’ and put ‘Mount Cook- Kelly’ here.

Anyway I had better go and do some more work on SRL’s social media marketing strategy, they are launching a uniquely New Zealand product (www.superrecovery.co.nz) which i’ve really enjoyed working with them on…. it’s exciting stuff helping an NZ company go global!
