TP, I would recommend malaria for a fad diet. I've been about 12st since puberty (maybe 11st 10 if I really train hard). Bout of malaria had me at 10st 6. Then followed your lead by eating the house once I finally recovered!
Great Glen Ultra tricialitt?
Loving being back on a small island for running, albeit one a little warmer than Hoy. Only problem is it gets dark quick round here, good thing my night vision is OK (and St Croix is devoid of scary things that come out at night).
Don't think I have been on here in a while. Just bimbling along hoping the sore calf I picked up in Kirkintilloch will fully heal. Off to the Caribbean in a couple of weeks, that will beat running on the dark roads of Nairnshire!
Hope OH and Elspeth have the hatches battened down. I still get BBC Orkney updates, and they suggest its a bit wild. Had a patient in first thing today who was on his way to Castletown near Thurso to work outside. Rather him than me.
I also managed plenty of Castle Light (in 2012), much of it warm as the 'bar staff' could not keep up with our consumption. This did depend on having my wife buy a ticket to the international tent so she could do all the walking to the bar. However the real post run festivities began at the buffet breakfast where there were a load of runners to talk to as we all consumed about 4000 calories.
