HSBC Round the Bays.

I woke up this morning and thought, “Hey, Fun Run.”

The latest in a series of running races was the HSBC Round the Bays, an 8.4k run that is one of the largest runs in the world. 40,000 registrants last year, and an additional 30,000 random runners (UPDATED: early count is over 45,000 runners this year). I’m sure they were fairly close to that this year as well. I did not do any fancy training or anything so it was bound to be a tough day and, accordingly, I brought a camera along to show you some of the route. This route is my usual Sunday run.

The video turned out okay, but only okay.

A clarification: at no point does Achilles Point actually appear in this film. So when I cite it, it is actually Okahu Point.

kinda like the filming of the Blair Witch project. I’m feeling a little dizzy right now.
