Great to see so many club runners today for our Run Club Invitational – the running community in Dunedin is great and by supporting the clubs you can also support the great events that they put on like the Dunedin Marathon, Hill-Free Half and Three Peaks just to name a few.

I was used to being active – walking, running and cycling were regular activities, but these were becoming more and more difficult with a rapidly deteriorating hip joint and debilitating arthritis pain. That same year I supported my daughter for…
