Favourite training route/session?I really enjoy the Gartmorn Dam training sessions as they range from speed, to hills to time trialsGartmorn Dam - I love playing in the muck
Greatest running achievement?I think most would say the completion of Stirling marathon in under 5hrs, but for me it was the Scottish half September 14 only 4 1/2 months after a broken ankle I only went out for a good day 2hrs and 21mins later it was completed and I was proud as punch.

Who would you like to run with? dead or aliveMichael Schumacher is who I would most like to run with, love or hate him hard work and dedication is something i would love to hear about as he runs with me
Phoebe Buffay - we have similar running styles
What's the best thing about running with the Wee County Harriers?When I first joined the WCH a year ago I did not know what to expect, I was quite honest and saying I was a wee bit potty mouthed with hills, and now I find some hills much better and not as potty mouthed anymore. So for me the WCH helped me up a few hills step by step and encouraged me all the way, so therefore WCH are the most encouraging running club that cater for all needs and support all no matterBrilliant group full of encouragement and helpful
