Just a quick note from Queenstown–adventure capital of the world. If you’re looking for adrenaline rushes, this is the place. The world’s highest bungee jump, jet boats, a giant hilltop luge. . .the people here are a little left of normal.
Even the endurance athletes here find ways to take it to the extreme. It’s not too often that I get the opportunity to tell others that their workouts are crazy, but after a few group workouts here, I’m beginning to feel like a total slacker! Ironman begins to sound a bit mundane when compared to the drama of adventure racing and insanity of ultra distance running, which seems to be the standard here. I must admit, it kind of has me thinking. . .
I have heaps (that’s the Kiwi term for “lots”) of pictures to post, but unfortunately I’m out of internet time! We are off to Milford Trek for4 days of backpacking adventure. See you soon!
