Good morning/afternoon/evening reader (delete as appropriate), and welcome to my first ever blog post. Before I start, let me apologise for a few things.....
Good morning/afternoon/evening everyone. As I write this, I know that in 9 weeks time I will have finished the NY marathon (touch wood) or at least the marathon will be finished. It is starting to get serious now in terms of the running - since the last time I posted I have done the following … Continue reading 9 weeks to go – I did the Carteret Half Marathon!
My training for the New York Marathon has now gone through 6 out of 17 weeks, a little over 1/3 of the way there.

I encountered the first disappointment of running in 2017 this year. New York Road Runners have had a 10k race for the past few years in association with the New York Tartan week festivities, but didn't do so this year. As a Scotsman, the chance to run in a race dedicated to your country was … Continue reading A Scotsman running in the… Scottish Run? Not this year.
