This week last year, just before I turned 57, I did the 1st session of c25k. At that time I was Granytobe. I graduated on 3rd October and bought my trusty Garmin 35 on 5th October before entering the Baxters Loch ness 5k on 6th October with 1600 others. Goodness that was an amazing event running with all those people and completing my 1st 5k distance.
After 2 weeks consolidation I started Ju Ju's magic plan. Graduated on 4th December having skipped the 2 x 9k weeks as it was so cold I just wanted to graduate then go back to shorter runs in the cold weather. In January after a 2 week break skiing I decided to attempt a virtual NC500 in 2020. This is a fantastic road trip round the Scottish highlands where I have lived since 1987.
In February, around the time my wonderful 1st grandson was born, I decided to work on hill runs which I now love.
In May we moved to Perthshire beside our extended family - bliss being so close especially during lockdown.
Today I've reached 1000k since buying my garmin in October. Today's run was 8.5k in beautiful Loch Tay, 1 night mini break with sister-in-law but the young ones and new babies (nephew's daughter 1 week today) are joining us for a walk.
Happy running everyone 🤗
