I wish all the best to all those participating in the Loch Ness Marathon, 10K race and 5K Fun Run tomorrow.
My middle son is running in the marathon and my youngest son's girlfriend is doing the 10K race - as I believe is a nhs C25K graduate, Mietjie. Since I've only just graduated I'm doing the 5K Fun Run.
I've run 5 km before, including participating in a Parkrun, and for this run I'm not too concerned about my time and aim to enjoy the run. We 5K runners have an easy route across a park, across islands in the middle of the River Ness, then back along the riverside. As this is close to the city centre I expect there will be a fair number of spectators along the route, so I plan to savour the atmosphere. I just hope I don't get overtaken by too many wee children.
