Last Sunday I was up at Fort William for Eddie’s half marathon.  162 runners 90% of whom were local I suspect. Wet and windy, but Scotland in November so no surprises there.  Stunning scenery  in parts, running down the side of the loch with the misty mountains to look at.  Reminded me what a beautiful country we’ve got.  Managed 1 53 40. And a 5 hour train journey home to rest up on. It was a long day !!

You heard of the Jog Scotland 5k Santa Run in Strathclyde Park December 16th ? Brilliant fun day out if you want to be one of approx 300 runners wearing tinsel, Santa hats ect running round the loch.  There’s a team from my work going over and although not as exotic as a half marathon in Europe I recommend it as a fun day out.  Slow field as well.  Last year I was second female back.  My finest hour !
