Yes I'm doing Lochleven half too. Not done it before, but its supposed to be good. I'm using it as a preparation race for Strathearn marathon.
Hope FFB has fun in the cold, we know she likes it really !
Good running Elspeth, nice places to run.
Back into training with a nice 10miler today around Pollok Park and into Bellahouston, a few people out cycling and dog walking, but compared to being in Italy Scotland is really quiet ...even including crossing the M77 !! Its so nice being home in the wide open spaces of the parks and not looking over your shoulder every five minutes because some guy is about to mug you.
I hope the person who unzipped my back trouser pocket coming out of Ercolano station enjoyed finding the used wet-wipe I had in there !
So cat saga . My puss was with his usual sitters, they had him all of one day, then they had people in making loads of noise and he got a fright and ran outside. They didn't notice him missing until the next morning and couldn't find him. They put up notices and a few neighbours said they thought they might have seen him. So I got home after two flights (went via Gatwick), knackered, literally put the bags down then went over to look for my puss who by that point had been out missing for 8 days ! looked all around the back alleys then decided to go down to a close where someone thought they had seen him a few days ago, got let into the back court and called him a few times and back came this 'Meeeeoooow', louder and louder, it was my cat !! He jumped up onto a bin store roof and I had to climb onto the bins to get him into his cat box. Took him to the vet to have 5 ticks removed and he has lost a bit of weight, but otherwise okay . So, that's them sacked from cat sitting!!!
