Kinross Sportive

Warmup at Kinross Sportive This year’s events for charity fundraising is made up of a warmup, the main event and a cool down. The warmup of choice was the Kinross Sportive on 27 April. The day started off with registration and trying to get everything ready before setting off. The […]

Bishopbriggs Tri – a different perspective

This was probably the most nervous I had been going into a sprint race for a long time. I have been training for an Ironman and due to a niggling calf injury that had bothered me the previous year I have just spent my time building up distance slowly and […]

Liege-Bastogne-Liege Sportive

I’m not sure how I ended up doing LBL.  On the back of our cycling trip to Majorca the year before plans were put in place to do it again that fell through.  Somewhere in the midst of this Jeroen had mentioned doing LBL as he had wanted to do […]

Borders Cross Country 2019

Regular trips to the Borders for some of the club members over the last few months have provided some competitive training in the XC Series.  Whilst competitive for most of us just means getting around the course the juniors were nearer the front of the field and Cammy Fordyce won […]

European Duathlon Championships, Ibiza 2018 My last race. I had been wishing this day to come, not because it was the European Duathlon Championships in Ibiza but because I desperately wanted to stop running having developed tendonapathy in my heel in May that meant pain whilst running and searing pain […]

Tartu AG Europeans

A couple of years ago I decided to give myself a new challenge – qualify for Team GB. At first it was just a pipe dream and frankly a ridiculous idea, having never been particularly sporty in my former years and being one of the slowest runners on the planet. […]

Loch Tay Sprint Triathlon – Fiona Miller

At the beginning of this year my husband Donnie challenged me to enter a sprint triathlon. It had been 5 years since I’d last completed a triathlon despite being a member of E#3 for a couple of years. I’d done a couple of Try a Tri events and one sprint […]

Selina’s City to Summit Race

Every year, I like to set myself a challenge that scares me enough to actually train for it. An afternoon of internet browsing over Christmas led me to stumble across City to Summit, a 155 mile run-bike-run from Edinburgh Castle to the Highlands, up and down Ben Nevis and finishing […]
