NZ In A Month

Just a month to run the length of NZ!
No mean feat for anyone...let alone a 19-year-old. This week Victoria Taylor from the Hutt Valley completed the 2200km Cape Reinga-Bluff trip in only 34 days.
She even ran on a treadmill while crossing Cook Strait aboard the Interisland ferry. And as icing on the cake, she ran across Stewart Island too.
Victoria's efforts raised more than $9,500 for child cancer, and beat the previous record by nine days. She also wore out $750 worth of shoes in the first week, had her support driver quit after the first day...and unexpectedly, put on 6kg in the process!
Her next goal is the 2014 Commonwealth Games.
Selectors, keep an eye on this girl: she's got guts!
