Two Breweries 2014

Never mind a certain Marathon taking place of a similar name, this was the Baxter’s Two Breweries Hill Race, the first without our Elsie…or was it? I arrived several hours early in clear blue skies and Traquair House and grounds were a stunning place to prepare, and at registration, for the first time in 30

Bennachie Hill Race

Another new race for me and what cracker! Despite the perpetually sore Achilles these days I ran ok at Ben Venue last week, had a good run during the week and then had a wee5 mile flat loosener on Saturday in the rain. A very big field had gathered for this exceptionally well organised race

Mugged!!!

Rumour has it that social standards in Inverclyde have dipped to an all-time low?! It seems that the days are gone of only getting your wheels nicked if you where daft enough to stop your car for the Larkfield “lollipop” man in Greenock. Now it is reported that hoodies in the mall are sporting ever
