Perthshire Marathon & Cycle Marathon Sat 6th Sept

A great day on Saturday at the 3rd Perthshire Marathon - a beautiful circuit from Aberfeldy taking in Kenmore and the surrounding countryside. A small field of around 150 marathon runners, I came home in 3:44, but keeping plenty in reserve since I had also entered the bike event which started 20 minutes later! The same course on the bike seemed much easier somehow having just run it, and it helped that I met Peebles Cycling Club member Karen Sinclair and rode as a Peebles team. 26 miles is not exactly a long way on the bike, but it certainly feels longer after you've just run it too........ 

A great and very well organised event, and 2 medals and goodie bags for a change too!
