A great way to start 2014 off, a wee uphill race Aonach Mor on New Year’s Day. We left Kingussie at 9am, after getting Maisy up at 8am after dragging her to a party & fireworks in Newtonmore on Hogmanay, well she has to get used to these late nights, lots to eating & drinking & no sleep…. No wonder she is grumpy, must take after her Dad……
Anyway it was great to see a few Westies at this race, although I thought there were 7, but on the results only shows 6 looks like someone is down as Lothain RC……. Is this correct?
Conditions were great & good turnout of runners. As usual I was well down the pack, at one point I was 3rd last & then I seemed to get my 2nd wind at the fence & made up lots of places at least 9, very unusual for me it must have been the soup & chips I was thinking about. I managed to be all of 10 seconds quicker than last year, how consistent am I……..
Anyway a great day followed by a nice journey down the Gondola & back to the Glen Hotel for a pint or 2.
