Last weekend was a busy one for races with lots of superb Carnethy performances. At the West Highland Way Race David Hanna had a great run to come 5th in 17:44. I am sure there must have been other Carnethy runners there too so sorry if I have missed them off but I see that Nick Williamson of Dunbar who does a lot of our social runs also had a very good race. David McLure won and Nicola Adams Hendry was leading lady. The oldest competitor came under 24 hours at the age of 70!! Amazing.
This was my first attempt at the race and it went surprisingly well – if feeling like death would be a welcome release at points counts as well. I never want to see another pot of custard as long as I live. I did however manage the most awesome sprint finish (my fastest ever kilometre according to Strava) and made it around in 30 hours. Here is a photo of me looking completely deranged at Bridge of Orchy.
