He turned on a magnificent day for us and took us around some of his running tracks. There was a great turn out of runners and walkers. Gary not only turned on fantastic weather but made sure we were well catered for with a cold drink and ample food afterwards.
Here are some photos of what we saw on our travels on the Kapiti Coast walkways and beaches.

|Time to take in the view for a moment|
|and catch our breath.|
|How about a group photo to show our grand children if they are at all interested.|
|I managed to get into this one [on seat 3rd from the left] Obviously it was very warm!|
|Some of the boys are feeling frisky.|
|Another team photo|

|Was worth the effort!|
|Time to head home.|
|A good spread was waiting for us.|
|Plenty of food and drink to replenish lost energy.|
|Telling a few stories of past glories|
|and sorting out the problems of the world.|
Thanks Gary for hosting a scenic and enjoyable run. Everyone enjoyed the challenge under sunny skies and the after match function.
