Why you run - such as: competition, general fitness, lose weight?I enjoy the challenge and having time to zone outTrying to stay on top of my weight - but failing!
How many years since you started running?3 years, wish I had started soonerAbout 3 years ago. Most I'd done before that was a couple of miles - again to keep the weight down
Favourite race?Alloa Half and Scottish HalfNot sure that I have one yet! Tried to do most GP races this year and have enjoyed the variety. If pushed maybe the Knockhill circuit. I've done that a couple of times
Favourite race distance?Half MarathonProbably 10k, though I've never come across an easy race yet!
Favourite training route/session?Hill trainingKing of the hill - as much as you can tailor this to your own level, putting in as much effort as you want
Greatest running achievement?Finishing the Stirling MarathonDid the Stirling Marathon this year, but legs gave out after about 18 miles so did more walking than running after that point. Going to give it another go in 2019
Where would you like to go on holiday?FranceLove Rome and last time I was there took my running shoes, so started a couple of days with a jog past some fantastic sights
Other interests/hobbies apart from running?Body Combat and DIYKeen squash player though slowing down now
Who would you like to run with? dead or aliveAyrton Senna
Was really impressed to know that a couple of WCH ran the West Highland Way - that's a fantastic feat. And the people are normal, so maybe one day it might be possible to do the same
What's the best thing about running with the Wee County Harriers?They are supportive, social and enthusiasticJust knowing that if I turn up there will be someone to run with - no pressure, just a warm welcome
