Lock Ness Marathon

I had a moment of crazziness and decided to sign up for the Loch Ness Marathonhttp://www.lochnessmarathon.com/ in Scotland later this year!


Maybe I should have started out with a smaller goal but if you know me I love a challenge and why not give it a go!
Running a marathon is one of those things that I have always wanted to do, and considering we were planning on being in the UK while it was on I thought it was a fantstic opportunity.

Cam will be there with me although might not be able to do the full marathon due to his back but we might get to see him participating in the Clan Challenge. His Dad is Scottish and comes from the Macgregor Clan (I’m still trying to convince him to run in a kilt, he, he).

There is a group of Aussie flight attendants living in London who are participating in the race, so it should be lots of fun!

So that’s one more thing off my list. Yes, I have a list of things I want to achieve, like running a marathon! Last year was Sportsmodel and this year is the Marathon! I’m excited already, the goal is to make it to the finish line injury free!

So I’ve started my training, 20 weeks to go until the big day and I’ll be needing every one of those weeks to build up my endurance.

I’m getting the help of Pat Carroll Online Coaching http://www.patcarroll.com.au/
to provide me with a specific running plan! I work best when I have a set plan and someone to check in with!

So anyway that’s my exciting news, hope everyone else is having a great week!
Cheers, Hilds
