I am a 58 year old teacher from Rotorua, New Zealand. I am married with four grown up daughters. I lived in Gisborne for around 23 years and on moving to Rotorua in 2009 I began a new phase in my life, which involved a new teaching job and beginning competitive walking. This blog is my ‘exercise journey’ since moving to Rotorua. I hope that it can inspire others to undertake challenges which they never imagined they could achieve.
