I have to say that when I scheduled a club run for tonight, I did wonder if we would have any takers. I’m sure everyone is saving themselves for the Lumphanan Detox on Saturday. Whatever the reason, I had the rare opportunity to run alone and enjoyed a gentle 8k thereby taking the moment and saving most of myself on the outside chance that I will make it to the Detox.
A bit windy, but still very mild evening provided a pleasant backdrop for a gentle run with Sandy, Jack, young Leslie and Wendy. Did I just say gentle? Phew – Sandy really set a tough pace.
Club run again on Hogmany, but not expecting a huge turnout.
In spite of cold and wet conditions, more than 100 runners turned out to participate in this tradition Banchory event. Hats off to Sandy Reid who organises everything so well, bringing many parts of Deeside together for a light-hearted but unmissable morning of running followed by a warm reception in the Guide Hut with gallons of warm nourishing soup and light refreshments.
A small group enjoyed a torch run around Crathes, making the most of all this mild weather.
There will be no club run on Thursday this week, it being Christmas eve and all, but back to normal training next week.
A stunning torch run in Scolty on an incredibly warm evening and no wind with Dave, Lesley, Jack and Bill.
Enjoyable town run with Bill, Tom, Wendy, Jack, Mark, sandy, Lesley and Liz too.
Small turnout for regular road run from the Sports Centre with Bill, Jack, Sandy and John. Meanwhile, up in Scolty Lesley enjoyed a torch run with Paula, Liz, Rick, Mark and David.
A fine turnout on this surprisingly mild evening with Mark and Mark, Gordon, Bill, Jack, Paula, Wendy,
Ali, Paul, Lesley, Helen and a big welcome to Tom from Knockburn Loch who joined us today.
Two lonely souls in Mark and Bill completed the Banchory route, while Lesley and Paula took to the hills and ran Scolty.
Surprisingly mild evening and a pleasant run with Lesley, Jack, Paul, Bill, Wendy and Sandy along our traditional route through the village.
