Dave (running) and Tim (biking) join the challenge from Mike Greer Homes in Christchurch. Dave lost a bet, and having already pawned the children he really had no other option. We're told his hobbies include stamp collecting, chess, and scrap booking the Royal Family photos. Life of the party we're sure! With hobbies like this you wouldn't normally predict that his main running experience was evading the police in Ashburton (during his delinquent days). Tim meanwhile decided the biking was a good way to get out of the house away from his wife (NOTE: his words not ours – please spare us……). His training highlights (when he's not enjoying other one-off hobbies like underwater arc welding) apparently peaked with a few trike-a-thons back at Waimate Kindy. Let's hope the absence of the third wheel doesn't put him off! Get over to their page and show your support!
