Well the time has come and I am ready for my final running event of the year raising money for Yorkhill Children’s Charity. I will take part in the Great Scottish Run on Sunday and I am delighted to announce that my good friends at Portavadie will be my official sponsor for Sundays Race. If you have not had the chance to visit the new Spa & Leisure facility at Portavadie then you are missing a treat.

IMG_0817My training has been going great although I did pick-up a calf injury on Monday so I have had to rest so that I can be fit for Sunday. I tried a couple of miles tonight and although I could still feel it, I am on the mend and no matter what; I will get it out of my mind for Sunday, so no excuses!

“If you enter the arena carrying some excuse for underperformance, you’re prepared mentally to lose. Be 100% in your mind & go 100% for the win.” Frank Dick

 Come Sunday, I will reach my running goal for this year and I would like to thank all the people who has supported me with their kind words and sponsorship over the last year. Many have asked me if I will keep up running after Sunday’s race and the answer is Yes. I will also continue to raise what funds I can for the Yorkhill Children’s Charity as I have seen first hand, what wonderful work they do.

May I wish all the runners taking part in the Great Scottish Run all the best and have a great run.
