FRUITLOOP FINISH! - We Fruitlooped our way through a really unique path, enjoyed the stunning scenery, and finished where we began. This was my first Fruitloop experience, but I will definitely make it an annual event. It was GREAT fun!

New Zealand Sheared Sheep - It's impossible to drive around either island without constantly gazing out the window... since there might not be any other spot on earth with so much diversified beauty per square foot. Majestic vistas are what New Zealand is known for. And as you soak-up the scenery, be prepared for multitudes of eyes staring right back at you.

PRACTICING TO WIN - There was no way I was going to beat REAL runners at this year's Matakana, who finished the 7K run in under 30 minutes. FAR OUT! That really is Fruit Loops!
