Kia Ora Whanau. Fiona Hayvice was the second-ever guest on this-here podcast and this week Eugene and Matt have the pleasure of speaking to her again! Fiona has been busy since we spoke to her last time, coming fourth at the IAU Asia and Oceania 24 hour championships, fourth at the Tarawera 100 miler, fourth at the Tarawera 100km, Ultra Trail Australia 100km and recently setting a course record at the 50km North Range Trio. In addition to these amazing results, Fiona is heading back to the cauldron of 24 hour racing as a member of the New Zealand team taking on the world championships in Albi, France next month. We talk to Fiona about just how one trains to run for 24 hours around a track, the atmosphere of the events and how moving towards 24 hour racing, and 10 km road races, is a new and exciting facet in her journey as an elite runner. For our Wellington whanau, You can Help Fi Fly by attending her movie event on Saturday October 13th at the Penthouse Cinema in Brooklyn. Fi will be giving a talk beforehand, there will be prizes from YOYO Design by Kiwis, Tailwind, Crampfix, and Spring Energy. Link to the event in your show notes! Enjoy!
