STATUS Hadn't updated for ages. Strange couple of years! Missed family and friends but no one was seriously ill, and 2022 is looking better! Calf injury mostly better, so onwards an upwards! Hoping for a bright future for everyone. :-) G

About Me
Started running 07 after a nasty mountain bike accident end of 06 (a week in hospital and a spot of plastic surgery) put me off mountain biking. (See fetcheveryone.com/gallery-showphoto.php?id19442 for gruesome detail!) Decided running on 2 feet couldn't be as dangerous! Edinburgh Marathon 08 was the goal. Joined a club, did some training, got injured, got physio'd and fixed. Did it in 3:42. Pleased with the time. Loved the experience. But most of all I love the feeling of running, the camaraderie of the club and the lovely, lovely land of fetch. You are all wonderful! heart Update: Fetch Festive Calendar wanted an update. Errr, I'm not a parsnip. There you go.

What's the biggest challenge that awaits you?
I've been running for 10 years, so I've done the main challenges that I had: sub 3 marathon; West Highland Way, which is the premier ultra up here in Scotland. I'm hoping to keep running until I'm 100. The challenge is avoiding injury, innit?! :-)
