New Zealand, here we come!

I've been waiting for thirteen long weeks to give you the news: We're off to New Zealand!  Will has been there - finalising a job offer and getting everything else in place - since the end of June, and I can tell you one thing: Thirteen weeks is long time...  A very long time!  But what a privilege to have been able to spend it with Grandpa and Grandma in the Kalahari - an adventure we'll never forget.     



On Monday we completed our last Kalahari run in style: A whopping 2.42 km at a blistering 7:54/km in what must have been the windiest conditions we've experienced here to date.  It howled and there was dust everywhere.  But my heart sang: I knew that my next run will be in beautiful New Zealand.  


And, despite the prospect of a 14-hour flight alone with two toddlers this weekend, I just can't stop smiling.  Because yes, you've guessed it: I know who's waiting for us in Wellington...    


And I can't think of a better place to be.

See you on the other side!
