Hill Head Hogs

With the Helly Hansen Challenge imminent Al and John seized the opportunity to put in some last-minute training for the dreaded 'run' section of the event. Meeting at John's they drove to Hill Head and ran the 2-3 miles along the seafront promenade to Lee-on-Solent and back. It was a clear, crisp, starlit evening and a rewarding location for a gentle run - the lights of the ships and the Isle of Wight in the distance reflecting on the mirror-calm Solent.

Having completed the circuit in about 40 minutes the pair returned to Johns for curry (provided by Al) and bottled beer (provided by John). In time-honoured fashion the pair sat down to a film well-worthy of a TCA viewing; the 2007 film starring John Travolta - Wild Hogs. At the very least it took their minds of the weekend's activities which were looming large in light of disrupted training regimes.

That film looks truely awful! it will make you want to go out and run a mile at the very least! Glad to see an evening Hill Head jog has now been added to the TCA regime.

I would urge you to watch the film before you jump to conclusions - John has seen Wild Hogs twice at the cinema and several times on DVD. In his opinion it is a laugh-a-minute film destined for 'cult status' alongside in a similar fashion to The Blues Brothers.

Have you not sat down and watched The Incredible Petrified World right through yet? I watched 3 movies in succession on Saturday - Walk the Line; The Bridges of Madison County; and Titanic. I have to admit I fell asleep in the last just as the ship was breaking up, it was 3.00am.
