|But on the 78.4km Heaphy Track – always an intimidating prospect, Nike Air Max 90 Dames made worse by the fact that we started six hours later than planned because of a tortuous overnight drive – the wheels nearly fell off.
My right knee mutinied less than a quarter of the way in, and I had to drag my leg like a dead animal for 60km. With our drivers having begun their 654km journey to the opposite trailhead, my only option was to continue onwards and upwards, in the hope I could run it off. I couldn’Nike Air Max 90 Womens t.

I finished 30 minutes after Ben Nike Air Force 1 Damenand Luke, but time was digging its heels in and we couldn’t reach the start of Nike Air Max Command Damen the Abel Tasman Track, run its 55.2km length and make the afternoon inter-island ferry. Instead, my knee got some rest and we tackled one of the world’s greatest coastal trails the following morning – even then, only making the ferry with one minute to spare.
