I want to start positive here, and I WILL start positive here because it is quite a simple bottom line really. I went abroad to run in an international event for Scotland and came home with a medal.

A two minute rant before I go out my lunch run. It’s October 2016. Callum Hawkins sets a Scottish Half marathon record. Behind him thousands of people run their hearts out having trained for months.

Bless me Strava for I have sinned. It has been seven weeks since my last race. I didn’t actually quite mean it to be so long but after an overload of races in June and July the plan was to ease it back a couple of weeks then build up for a few track PB ..read more

I love these relays. Usually taking place at the end of January it’s a good wee guide to see how the winter training is going, and for the likes of me usually no pressure as I’ve tended to be Motherwell C or D team, at a stretch B, so if not much in the legs ..read more

This hopefully won’t be a long one, for your sake and mine. I’m sitting writing it on my phone whilst sitting getting some “fresh” air down on the Solway Coast and thought I may as well get my catch up done. Last time out I had got the bronze at the Scottish 10k for M50 ..read more

The hardest blogs I find to write are the ones where I have done well and achieved something. There I have said it. It is down there in black and white. Or maybe I’ll make it mauve as a limited edition, probably not though as I am not really sure what mauve actually is to ..read more
