Exciting news.

Finally getting around to posting a wee update, it amazing how you find time to do things when you are supposed to be revising;
Procrastination … Never!

So … What have I been up to; I suppose in race wise, I decided to give a Cross-country race a bash to get some single sport racing in and it is just a good hard session and great fun.
I raced Scottish University Champs; last year I came 5th and was looking to improve on that, unfortunately I came 5th once again. I wasn’t too gutted about it as the course was not suited to me, I know I am still not a physically strong runner so on such a wet muddy course I was actually very pleased with my performance and probably took more from it than the previous year.

That performance has also qualified me to represent Scottish University Sport at the Great Scottish International Cross-Country in January and also my University at BUCS in the New Year as well, so still plenty of Cross-country racing yet to come.

My big news at the minute is that I have just been signed for a Division One, French Grand Prix Team for the forthcoming season.

I will hopefully race against the best in the world at the unforgiving French Grand Prix series gaining valuable experience through furiously fast racing.
So that is something extra to look forward to during the season.

In the nearer future I will be running another cross-country race on Saturday; the East District Scottish Champs, so hopefully I will be able to get a good performance out of that.
After that I will be heading to Aguilas, Spain, my usual warm weather training base for a 10 days intensive training before Christmas.

So hopefully I will be able to cram a few more updates before Christmas.
