Note: This blog was written differently, posted and deleted earlier in the week as I wasn't comfortable with it. Running wise the weekend was brilliant. It started off on Friday night with one of my favourite events of the year, the Scottish Indoor 3000m at the Emirates at the GAA BMC Miler meet. This one … Continue reading Living for the weekend – Includes Scottish Indoor 3000m champs 2020

But it means a lot to me. So I reserve the right to continue to be annoying 🙂 It's been … Continue reading Karma Police – 3000m open graded and Vale of Leven 10k 2017
