Scottish Civil Service Cross Country Championships

After Jo&;s win at the Edinburgh Parkrun on Saturday and Keith&;s success at Galashiels on Sunday I thought I&;d make it 3 victories in 5 days for Corstorphine AAC by winning the Scottish Civil Service Cross Country Champs at Stirling University and defending the title I won last year.

Borders XC Galashiels Stage 5

A slightly more relaxed approach to getting to the race this week. We left a bit later and were expertly driven by Graham who seems to know all the shortcuts to Gala! Only one small problem - roadworks in Gala, this meant that Rory had slightly less time to prepare for his race then he would have liked!

#16 Edinburgh Parkrun

A bit of a rain start this morning, but by 9:30am the rain had left off in time for the start of the 16th Edinburgh Parkrun. CAAC was represented by 3 members this morning. Mike Anderson back racing after a period of illness. Was great to see him and Steve there at the start. I was scanning the competition at the start line, and didn&;t notice any familiar faces.

Borders XC Stage 4 Berwick upon Tweed

Luckily enough Grant was driving today. Normally this means two things 1. you get there early 2. you have time to run the course about twenty times before the actual race begins! You see Grant likes to get to races early and then thoroughly prepare. Me? I was already obsessing about our pits stop on the way back at the Cedar Cafe. You see us older athletes have different priorities.
