This evening I was a Queens Baton Bearer for the Commonwealth Games Glasgow 2014 relay in Stornoway. What a privilege, what fun and an amazing event.
I was nominated for community stuff that I do but also because - thanks to C25K -I am now a 'runner'.
However, doing the same leg as me on an up & down relay was Kirsty Wade -http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kirsty_Wade
Kirsty is a friend as well as my Jog Scotland & Aquafit tutor. How amazing is that!
Pipe bands, music, entertainment, sunshine. The police guys & girls protecting the Baton and Baton Bearers are all runners and cover the equivalent of a half marathon each day on the job. They are great fun, very supportive and enjoying the craic.
See where C25K gets us !!!!!
