I haven’t been able to do as much training as I would like in May. I’ve been on holiday and met lots of lovely feral cats in Crete and I’ve also started a new job. A highlight of this month is that little Mac, my lovely black cat turned one year old! Continue reading
So hot on the heals of running the Great Edinburgh Run last weekend, today I walked the 23 mile Glasgow Kiltwalk (http://www.thekiltwalk.co.uk) with my husband Paul. It took us 6 hours and 2 minutes to complete the route, which runs from Glasgow Green through to Balloch on the shores of Loch Lomond.

I have a number of challenges that I’m taking part in for Cats Protection in April, which means that my blog has turned more into a running/ walking blog than originally intended.

In fact before today I have never run as far as 10k ever – my goal for today was just to finish! I was joined by Robert, who as a serious running was expecting (and achieved) a far, far better time than me. Continue reading
