20th Dec Bella parkrun results

It was a good day for Bella at Pollok parkrun yesterday. Last week's run was cancelled owing to icy conditions, and this week's field of 231 was certainly smaller than usual, but that didn't put off the Bellas as the first two, and five of the top ten, were from the Club. Bruce Carmichael was 1st in 17:10 with Andy Campbell 2nd in 17:42.

Border Series XC – Berwick

Border Series XC – Berwick

Today was the 4th race in the Border series and it was a long trip down to Berwick. There were Three Wise Men that made the journey, aka Me, Greig Glendinning and Graeme Paterson. I know what you are thinking where was Peter Gallanagh??? Well he couldn't make it today, we received a text to say that he had "a lot of decking work to do" today! :shock: I was amazed that he put his decking before a XC race! But as it's Christmas we won't call it decking work we'll just say…Read more

Border XC – Moorfoot (Peebles)

Border XC – Moorfoot (Peebles)

by Peter G Sunday was the 3rd race in the Borders Cross Country series held in Peebles. 4 fearless Bella explorers had entered ready to do battle with the expected artic conditions on the last day of November, over the 4 mile course. Unfortunately Greig Glendinning had contracted Ebola and had to be confined to Uplawmoor Hills. This was just as well as Davy Weatherhead was still wearing the head scars of Greig's 6x2 rusty nail infused dog throw toy and was seeking revenge. Clearly that would have to wait another day! So,…Read more

Dublin Marathon 2014

Dublin Marathon 2014

Woke yesterday feeling excited about the marathon but with an agony mouth full of horrible mouth ulcers. Had my porridge and walked the 30 minutes from my friend's flat to the start in Fitzwilliam Square, was very warm. Was really looking forward to running: so wonderful, all the runners gathering at 7:45, the excitement in the air, smell of muscle rub, pre-race tension. My sore mouth was getting me down but I reminded myself of all the long runs I'd done over the summer and that it was my legs I was running…Read more

A sleep deprived Glenmore 24 report

A sleep deprived Glenmore 24 report

You always think you are going to get an amazing nights sleep after running a 24hour race, but it never quite works out like that. I can't move my legs a millimetre in any direction without yelping in pain, so in the absense of sleep i might as well rustle up a race report. It's around 48hours since i last slept so expect spelling errors, factual innacuracies and flights of fancy. It's possible none of this actualy happened, but if that is the case i can always play the brain haemorrhage defense trump…Read more

Laggan 10K, 31/5/14

The Laggan 10k is an out-and-back, starting at the village hall close to the river Spey. In aid of the local primary school, it promises beautiful views in "Monarch of the Glen" country, legendary home baking, and an impressive array of trophies, all for a tenner. It didn't promise sunshine, but when I arrived it was a beautiful blazing hot highland day, bright yellow gorse, snowy peaks and blue sky. I picked up my race number from the village hall and set off on a quick warm up. There is also a fun…Read more
