Running the Abel Tasman Park Coastal Trail

My friend Liza was coming to New Zealand for a visit and to watch Ironman N.Z. A great athlete, who I met through the TriCats Triathlon Club, I suggested that as part of her tour she visit us near Nelson and either go sea kayaking or join me for a run of the Abel Tasman Park Coastal Trail. In the end she opted for the trail and my wife Lis organized a great day. Liza, Gary (who was travelling with Liza) and I would run the 32 km from Awaroa to Marahau, while Lis and our other friend Anke would hike part of the trail. So at 9:30 we boarded a water taxi at Kaiterteri on a perfect day for a visit to the park. Anke got the photo of us below before boarding.
