March 22nd 2015. 6.2 miles. MUD!!

So it’s my first event of the year! In fact it’s my first event since I did my knee in. And a good way to ease ourselves in…..

Today was the Craufurdland Estate Muddy Trials Event in Ayrshire. There was a whole team there representing the Beatson, put together by the tireless Ross McKay. I went with my lovely colleague Nicola and her husband Ian (who I think I essentially bullied into taking part) and my old pal from Uni Vanessa (was lovely to see you!) and her friend Leigh. There was MUCH mud but actually it was great fun, as you’ll see from the video. And despite being out half the night and being somewhat hungover, Vanessa and Leigh still managed to finish a good half hour before us!

Kids also had a ball doing the muddy mile, but more of that later.

If anyone reading/watching this fancies donating to the cause, there is a link from the blog to my fundraising site (all donations tremendously welcome).
