It is that time of year when I reflect on the years running and say thanks to all involved in making it happen. I will die a happy man if in any way I can replicate this years results any time in the future.
Below are a few photos and my Power of 10 table for reference :

Missing results are winning the Loch Katrine Marathon in the 2nd best time on the course so far and Glen Ogle 33 at the end of the ultra season .

It has been a great year with lots of fun shared with Rob and James who have both excelled this year and have given me more challenges for next year. I have been asked back to provide pacemaking at the London Marathon again so looking forward to that and do have a couple of other challenges in the pipeline.

Many thanks to all of the race directors for laying on such great events, to my ever patient wife and son for allowing me to disappear so often and Miss Self for support for all the crew at Glenmore.
