Gleneagles half marathon

Courtney Speirs who recently ran in the Gleneagles half marathon.

Here’s what Courtney had to say…..

It went fantastic! I was surprised how much I had improved in my running. Evidently all those long runs with Hunter (my beagle) has paid off! He has given me so much confidence, I’m now signed up to do the Stirling Marathon in April!

The day was perfect. The sun shone the entire time (I ended up burnt, rare in Scotland!). The route took us through some beautiful parts, with hills in the background, rivers and farms. It was quite tough near the end, as it was mostly uphill for the last three miles! I enjoyed a beer and a burger afterwards ha.
