Sand to Mud

The 40th annual Sand to Mud race took place today. We raced through heavy showers of rain to board the bus and chug out to the start line at Kariotahi. Thankfully, apart from a couple of showers, the rest of the day was fine. It was great to see some of the children from Te Whenua at the start line, and to chat with Miss Sixsmith and Ms Davidson. My sister and I enjoyed walking the first 5 or so kilometres; after that it was definitely a case of … are we there yet?? Those sausages and hot chips at the finish line were delicious 🙂20160403_093358 20160403_093812 20160403_093900 20160403_094814 20160403_100743 20160403_101751 20160403_102352
