One Big Jog

Who am I...? 

Hey guys, I'm Brooke.

Kiwi, nurse, demanding child-number-four, lover of all things outdoors, born with an incessant need to max out every day, and recent addict to peanut-butter pretzels. 

(Oh and owner of an inserted cardiac pacemaker since age 23).

What am I up to...??

(I've kinda started asking myself the same question recently!?!)

In one week today I will be setting off from the Northern-most point of New Zealand, aiming to run/climb/kayak/hobble/navigate my way down the full 3000km of our beautiful wee country, from the top to the bottom.

Am I crazy?? The other five members of my immediate family definitely think so...

I am no athlete and I have no spectacular track record in the running world. I am just a regular Kiwi, with a dream to explore. 

Whilst my biggest motivation for this run has just been to enjoy the adventure, my plan also involves covering roughly 50kms a day, for 60 consecutive days. If I am successful with that target, it would mean recording one of the Fastest Known Times for a female over this trail. 

I will be fundraising for HeartKids NZ as I go. Please check out the campaign if you're interested to know more...
