Photo: FELICITY REID By LISA HONEYBONE Visit www.westernleader. co.nz to follow my blog and comment online. I m a quitter. Well at least when it comes to diets and exercise. 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 train- ing 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 motivation to keep going. So I thought that by volunteering to write this blog I might have found my new motivation -- 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) progress from not being able to run to the letter- box (okay, that s a slight exag- geration) to running Round the Bays on March 18. The Ports of Auckland Round the Bays has been an annual event in Auckland 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 runners and an estimated 70,000 participants. Today the event is a joint collaboration between the Auckland Joggers Club and Fairfax Media parent com- pany of Suburban Newspapers and the Western Leader. The course starts in Quay St in the city and finishes on the waterfront 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!
