A swim, a ride, a run and a race. AND A HILL!

It’s been a busy week, but the headline news has to be about the race. (Read about my cycle ride, and my discovery of “coffeeneuring” here).

The White Horse Gallop, described as a “quad-burning” 8 mile off road race basically runs up and over the Westbury White Horse. And then down again. As predicted it was hard, as someone said to me “when you’re walking in the first two miles of a race, it’s not good” this was said as we walked up the first hill, in the first two miles.  To cut a long race report short, here’s the moment I spotted the White Horse:-

Grr!

Now that you’re all scared, here’s me safely back home complete with finishers’ rosette:-

HILL!
HILL!

 

Impressed yet? Cause if not, I’ll have to do my scary face again.
