Great Scottish Run – Half Marathon 13.1 miles – 6th September
Pedal For Scotland – Glasgow To Edinburgh Cycle 50 miles – 13th September

Background

On the 7th September my 17 year old daughter; Emma Berry Goodman died of Motor Neurone Disease.
Previously I had promised her that I would run a marathon before I was 40. I have just under a year to ensure that I do that.
The only experience I have of running was doing a 10k for MND in 2008 so the half marathon is the next logical progression.
Never one to do things by half I have also signed up for a 50mile cycle ride as a “cool down” event after the run.
If you have never heard of Motor Neurone Disease have a look at their website http://www.mndscotland.org.uk/ I would pay particular attention to the video. The film has been given a cert 15 classification. It is a graphic portrait of how many people diagnosed and living with this illness can feel.
In addition to making a donation here, it would be fantastic if you could either join me on either or both events or if you could come along on the day and cheer me on!

Thanks

Titan Crane

We were supposed to be going to see the Titan Crane on the Clydebank today.

Unfortunately it was such a miserable day we never even braved out the front door.

We will try and get there next weekend instead.

Airshow at East Fortune

Went to see the Scottish Airshow at East Fortune.

The kids favourite was the Hunter

The obvious favourite was the Typhoon

My personal favourite was the Chinook helicopter

Everyone holding on ?

For all of the photos, look here.

Jousting

Had a great day out in Linlithgow today.

Historic Scotland organised a medieval re-enactment weekend this weekend.

On display was: Jousting, swordplay, quarterstaffs, and general fighting.

The weather stayed dry and we had a great day out.
