A few friends have asked whether I will be doing a ‘Guess My Time’ competition for Katrina’s debut Marathon on Sunday 2nd October.
Katrina is not too keen as she doesn’t want the pressure of people’s expectations but since she does read this blog then I thought I’d do it and not tell her …. until afterwards!
So if you want to take part all you have to do is guess in hours, minutes and seconds how long you think Katrina will take to finish the 26miles 385yards Loch Ness Marathon.
To give you an idea Katrina ran 1.44.35 for the Glasgow Half Marathon two weeks ago. Katrina has said that she’ll be happy with anything under 4hrs 30mins.
It’s hard to know just how she’ll find those last 5-6miles but that’s the fun in trying to guess.
Send your guesses by 9am on Saturday 1st October …..
1. Leaving a comment on this blog
2. Text me on 07905 218162
3. Facebook (don’t worry Katrina doesn’t look at facebook either!!)

There will be a small token prize for the closest guess.
Katrina went to Edinburgh on Monday night and Katrina was fitted with a new pair of running shoes curtesy of Run and Become, Edinburgh. This was part of Katrina’s fame as a Scottish Daily Mail Columnist! She went for a pair of Mizuno ‘Wave Alchemy 11’ and seems very happy with them so far.
The plan is for Katrina to run in them over the next couple of weeks and then decide whether to use them in the Marathon or stick with her Asics.
Finally a comment on my own training. My Achilles is feeling a lot better but there is still some pain if I push down on it. I’m enjoying have a few weeks off running and I’m getting out on the my bike a few days a week which I’m really loving.
I’m not spending as much time on my blog but I’ve been asked to take over the whw web site so I’ve been doing that instead! Hopefully it will go live in October. I’m enjoying setting it up with all the things I hope people would want on the site.
