I've been running for around 9 years with 4 years of ultra running. I prefer trail, fell and mountain events. Other than that I am a balding Glaswegian academic living in England with an Australian wife and a little daughter called Eilidh.
I thoroughly enjoy running, and running for very long distances over trail and fell terrain in particular. I originally created this blog to document my training for the West Highland Way Race, a 95 mile ultra in Scotland. Now that I have completed the race, this blog will be a place for me to share thoughts on running, racing and life in general. Please feel free to comment or to let me know you have a related blog - I'll link it and read whenever I have the time.
