Yesterday I completed my longest race/event to date, the 11.4km Hogsback Road Race, notorious locally for its very hilly terrain. It started at Loosely House and the course soon climbed up onto a ridge known locally as the Hogsback. Piggy #1
My aim was just to complete the course in one piece, my 10k time on the flat is usually 75-80 mins, so was really chuffed to clock a sub 90 min time. The medal is in the shape of a piggy #2.
Three ladies had dressed up as pigs, in pink outfits complete with piggy ears. Piggies #3-5
The route maps out the shape of a pig (how cute is that?). Piggy #6
A friend on FB commented that his back legs are misshapen, he is an arthritic piggy and I thought that was a very good description of me struggling up the hills. Lucky piggy #7
