Congratulations to my cousin Russell for completing a grueling multi terrain half marathon run recently- raising £110 for motor neurone disease- Well done you-an excellent result ! Russell pictured here wearing his band before the start of the run -[he writes I was too knackered after to take any photographs ! ] said the run went really well- as you can see the weather and the setting were great and the fact he was being sponsored helped him get round what turned out to be a hilly 13 miles, crossing the moors at 1200ft before dropping back to the castle at Balmoral-I had to chuckle as he wrote saying the best part of the run -was that the beer tastes so much better afterwards and a warm evening sat out in the sun was just the ticket to aid recovery . And well deserved too Russ !
