16th July 2011
Today i am participating in the “Race2Glory” a challenging race being held for the first time here in Kiltimagh. It involves a 10k run to the top of our local “mountain” followed by a 23k bike ride over and around the same “mountain” followed by a 7k run which includes a short distance in the Glor river. During the runs there will also be some detours to make us run through bog! As I type this I wonder “why” it just seemed a good idea at the time!! And notice I said I am participating not competing!! The only person I will be racing is myself!! Still there are expected to be over 200 people and it should be a good event for the town. My biggest concern while training was the weather, the race starts at 1pm, I thought that might be too early on a hot day in July, but I should have known better, it is rain and gale force winds!! I am posting a picture taken on a nicer day in mulranny a couple of weeks ago.
