I'm not a runner. I've always thought it was a bit silly to pound the pavements in search of some illusive endorphin high.
But - I'm becoming a bit of fan.
One reason is that it's stunning running here. We are lucky enough to have a palm-tree lined walkway that starts just near our house and follows the bays into town for about 6km.
My 30 minute runs have gradually extended and this gorgeous scenery was a great incentive to keep on running while I trained for a half marathon during the first few months of this year.
So maybe Noumea has turned me into a runner after all!
