Photo: FELICITY REID Fun run -- here I come By LISA HONEYBONE Visit www.waiheke marketplace.co.nz to follow my blog and comment online. I m a quitter. Well at least when it comes to diets and exer- cise. I m one of those people who thinks it s okay to have that chocolate bar or takeaway on the weekend because my diet starts on Monday. Every diet starts on a Monday. Trouble is they end by Tuesday. So when the boss asked for a volunteer to blog about training for Round the Bays I stuck my hand up all too quick. I ve been wanting to get into shape for ages but I can t seem to stick with anything. I want instant results to get the motivation to keep going. So I thought that by volunteering to write this blog I might have found my new motiv- ation -- shame. If I don t stick to a weekly training schedule and get into shape to run that 8.4km then I m not only letting myself down but all you readers are going to know about it. So over the next few weeks I hope you ll follow me as I progress from not being able to run to the letterbox (a slight exag- geration) to running Round the Bays on March 18. The Ports of Auckland Round the Bays has been an annual event in Auck- land since 1972. It has grown to be one of the world s largest fun-runs with nearly 40,000 registered run- ners and an estimated 70,000 participants. Today the event is a joint collaboration be- tween the Auckland Joggers Club and Fairfax Media, parent company of Suburban Newspapers and the Waiheke Mar- ketplace. The course starts in Quay St in the city and finishes on the water- front at St Heliers Bay. Entry is $15 for adults and $10 for children 16 years and under. So to those of you who might also be training for Round the Bays, good on you. Hopefully I can share some useful tips and information along the way and likewise feel free to share any advice you might have with me! Visit www.roundthebays. co.nz for more information on the run. Arrest after cannabis cultivation Police have arrested a man for the cultivation of cannabis. The 29-year- old Oneroa resident was arrested on January 24 and appeared in court last week. He will reappear later this month. On January 27, police arrested a 16-year-old Rocky Bay youth for unlawfully taking a motor vehicle. On the same day, a 21-year-old Oneroa man was arrested for assaulting a woman after a domestic incident. He was held in custody in the Auckland police cells and appeared in court the following day.
