    Has the NZ crowd already discussed that Costco is coming to New Zealand?

     

    I love their food court. Its junk food at super cheap prices, hot dog and soft drink for $1.50 plus some churros. Just love it. And who doesn't need a 50 pack of everything???

     

    Fred - couldn't you just have your son start at the same time as you? I assume its all chipped, so it shouldnt matter? Or does he want to race the others?

      I can probably give him that option.  My guess is he'll want to start with the rest of the 10k racers.  He's a bit more of a conformist than I am (more like his mother in that regard), but he may surprise me.

        It's like 10 minutes from my house.  The queues on opening day were apparently ridiculous.  Amusingly the power went out in the store apparently too.  I might check it out once things settle down a bit.

              Good luck, Steve!  You'll start before my 5K (between 6 & 6:20pm Eastern, depending on (dis)organization), but if you finish before I do, either you'll be very happy or I'll be very disappointed.

                  My week done and dusted... very sluggish for the first half of the week but starting to improve by Fri/Sat.  Hoping for more improvement this week.  My club (Takapuna) won the Masters Men at National Road Relays yesterday too... I think the club's first title in 35 years?  Very happy for the team (and also happy that my absence did not cost them) but obviously wished I could've been there.  Oh well... there's always next year!

                    I did a Lady Gaga challenge today and just passed. Averaging only 21 mpw last 8 weeks all easy obviously isn't the best.
