Out and about around Glasgow

Mugdock Country Park on the north side of Glasgow has some fantastic woodland and moorland trails. Part of Mugdock’s path network forms the start of the West Highland Way, Scotland’s most famous long distance path which runs off-road all the way from Milngavie to Fort William. Lots of walkers and runners were out enjoying Mugdock on the May Bank Holiday yesterday. Spring is here with fresh new leaves unfurling on the trees. This photograph was taken as the wind stirred new beech leaves into quivering motion.

Pre-run planning…

It’s mid April and only another few weeks to go until I finish my job and begin my summer of running! While it is all very exciting there is still a lot of work to do to identify good running routes and plan my journey. Gradually, those routes and stories from my travels will be appearing on this blog. In the meantime, please find out more about my project and consider suggesting a route for me to try out.
