Scottish Champs, Gullane

Saturday, August 29th, 2009

Windy? Yup. Hard work? For sure. Raining?? – Incredibly, no!!  The Scottish Olympic distance Champs in Gullane kicked off this morning and I headed along hoping for a start (I was on the waiting list). I like to race at home, and I haven’t done it for ages. Especially not in Gullane. In fact, I last […]

Today (and the past few days) has been awesome…. I even […]

Sunshine. It happens en Ecosse you know…. Nearly October? Swimming in the sea, and in SCOTLAND?? Yup, needs must, and well, I hadn’t raced a Championship event at home this year.
