Rachel Newstead as been training with us here at Improve my Running. Its all coming together, and she scooped up a win at the Dundee DRAM marathon this weekend. It was hot and windy conditions, so not an easy day out, but a great result for her.
Aisling from Improve my Running successfully completed the Highland Fling 53 mile ultra marathon in April. Having had to pull out of the race last year, we were really happy to see her running this year. The Highland Fling takes in beautiful scenery along the West Highland Way from Milngavie to Tyndrum. Well done Ailsing!
Our own coach Elaine competed in the Lakeland Trails marathon this year, which circumnavigated Lake Coniston, and included 2000ft of climbing. It was a hot day, and tough running. Well done to Elaine on her brilliant 4th place finish.
We are really excited about Richard Meade’s achievement at the Edinburgh marathon. Richard had been struggling with injuries before coming to see us, and had been training towards the marathon. He came in 5th place with a time of 2.38. Well done Richard!!
