My run today was my first attempt on the Kokoda Walk. This is a steep trail in Ferntree Gully that consists of a 1000 step climb. The trail commenorates the battles undertaken on the Kokoda Track in Papua New Guinea by Australian and Japanese soldiers.

It was tough going and I ended up walking a lot of the way. It certianly gives me something to aim for. The real highlight of the run (or walk) was the number of people there. There were some obviously elite runners, but there were all sorts of people walking and running the trail.
