The First Post

Charlie Mackenzie (webmaster of has been doing a fantastic job in setting me up this web-site. This is me trying out the blog feature for the first time so hopefully it works.

In training for the Dakar, I’ve had a number of firsts this year. I’ve done my first triathlons and my first adventure race (the Wan Day 8 hour race in the Pentlands outside Edinburgh – highly recommended for those who like getting muddy). This weekend sees me entered in my first competitive running event – the River Ness 10k in Inverness.

┬áThe Landrover is loaded up with running gear (and mountain bikes and walking gear and swimming gear – Alison likes to be prepared for any breaks in the weather) and we’re off to Inverness after work today. If there’s anything left of me after the weekend the next post will update as to how I get on.

┬áHave Fun – Paul
