Day break over "Death Valley"... aka my happy place.
I’ve watched the sunrise here more times than some people will ever see in a lifetime. If I’m not out climbing a mountain chances are I can be found here running through in the early morning hours (often in the dark before the sun even rises 😅). Of all the things in life you have no control over, the one thing you do is the consistent effort put into each day. Remembering the end goal and why you started something in the first place...
Never underestimate the power of a having a morning ritual.
On the start line I'd been told it was 'a steady 1km climb to start' and hence I'm still smiling. They omitted to tell us about the other 3km of hell. In spite of all of the above (and my facial expression in the second pic) I had an epic time on course. Great atmosphere. Thank you Albany @parkrunau! #IMoveMe#parkrun#Albany#WA#hillymountaingoat#tourtoiseandthehare#where 's5thgear?
Two books are hiding at Westfield Albany today for #BookFairiesUnwrapped . Find What Remains of Me by A.L. Gaylin by the cinema and By the Tracks We Leave by David Briggs on a seat inside the mall. Enjoy the early holiday treat! 🌲
About the Books:
What Remains of Me- 7-year-old Kelly Lund is jailed for killing Hollywood film director, John McFadden
Thirty years late, Kelly is a free woman. Yet speculation still swirls over what really happened that night.
And when her father-in law, and close friend of McFadden is found dead - shot through the head at point-blank range - there can only be one suspect.
But this time Kelly has some high-profile friends who believe she's innocent of both crimes.
But is she?
By the Tracks We Leave - Walking in the Otago hills of New Zealand, Rogan Fielding stumbles across the body of a dead man - JT Nielsen.
Intrigued, Rogan tries to discover more about the man, and to reconstruct the details of his life. As he does so, he is led ever more deeply not just into Nielsen's past, but the lives of the people who knew him - including neighbours, Jenny and her autistic son.
And as Nielsen's story unfolds, Rogan finds himself confronted by two irreconcilable versions of the man: local hero, international villain. Which he chooses to believe seems likely to affect not only Nielsen's legacy, but Rogan's own future and happiness. Yet as the story unfolds, the memories of others who knew JT Nielsen, or whose lives he touched, hint at a man Rogan will never really know .
Author David Briggs has also shared copies of By the Tracks We Leave with Little Free Libraries around the world. Mr Briggs says in his website: "I believe that books, like birds, are made to travel and sing." -
