Aonach Mor – 1st January 2014

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


Results Set off from home this morning to achieve my 100th Hill Race recorded on Chris’s site since I started running in 2007 so very pleased to have had a great run.  Was a bit cool to start with but within 5 mins  was overheating us usual.  Conditions were perfect, lovely clear day with nice views

CAT – Cairngorm Adventure Triathlon

CAT  – Cairngorm Adventure Triathlon Manny & I were thinking of doing this event but we thought we would wait until after the Ben to see how we were feeling as it was the following Saturday 14th September.  Just as well we did not enter together as Manny came down with “Man Flu”, again……  Tried

Ben Rinnes Hill Race

Lochaber Cow Hill

Results My first race since Carnethy and did I struggle with it. Manny was not going to do as he was still recovering from the Corrieyairach Challenge on Saturday so I thought I would give it a bash as it was only 2 miles & 900ft climb. It was the 3rd race of the Lochaber

Meall a’ Bhuachaille

Results You’ve got to start somewhere, with no training & no excuses as Manny was on Maisy duty thought I better give this race a go. It was a bit cool to start with but I knew after 10 mins I would be red & puffing away. By the time I reached the top of
