So this year I took part in the Tough Guy event on the second weekend it was offered in Rotorua. So the course had already been mud-ified the previous weekend.
Kieran and I did this together and we got off to a good start. Unfortunately his knee gave him trouble on our second lap to complete the full 12km. We still were able to complete the course in 1 hour 37 minutes. I was the 24th female in my age group which I was pretty happy with.
When you crossed the finish line we were given a Big Ben meat pie, and yes to everyone who has asked I DID eat it! I appreciate that pies aren't an everyday food and this was a once in a year event, so I must say I quite enjoyed my pie!! Anything warm after running through the mud and wading through ponds of freezing cold water up to chest level was going to be a winner on the day!
