I set up this blog (Oct 06) to record my training and thoughts in preparing for the 2007 WHW Race – a 95 mile ultra race from Milngavie to Fort William.
I have now run 42 ultras over the past eleven years including the whw 6 times and you can read all about them, watch my race videos and lots more by using the tabs at the top of the blog.

I got home about 9pm last night but ‘Team Kynaston’ taxi was required at 10pm to pick up three Kynaston girls. I knew snow was forecast but was taken a back by the amount that was falling! Thankfully it didn’t really stick and I was able to use my bike to get to work this morning.
We had a really good event this morning – Megaball Mania. We had over 800 children inside the new Toryglen Football Centre playing various megaball games. It was really good fun … and I hope the class I took enjoyed it too!
I ran home tonight wearing my hi-viz jacket and gloves. I thought I’d put them away for the year but not quite yet. A good solid run home. I could feel the effects of last night’s fartlek session but I spent most of the run thinking about the up coming Fling Race. The miles fly by as I imagine running along the track from Milngavie to Tyndrum. At least I don’t have to worry about getting lost.
I have now run 10 ultra races in the last 4 years so thought I’d introduce my very own ‘Guess My Time’ Hall of Fame. I’ve run the competition for each race and here is a list of the winners. Interestingly no-one has won it twice!
I will be opening the competition for The Highland Fling next week.
