This run is massive in Aberdeen, the whole beachfront was gridlocked and there were about 3000 runners massed in a rope pen.
The route is very interesting, through the docks, along the seafront and back by the football stadium. It was a good day for running, dry but cool with a haar (Scottish fog) coming off the sea.
It is great running with all the other people, we kept pace with a man in a fluffy dolphin suit. Very friendly and all the passers by cheer you on which is lovely. Alistair kindly trailed along slowly with me and we jogged gently along and along. By the end we were overtaking people who started off more speedily, but were still with dolphin man. My legs and left hip were really sore, but no wheezing so I was good. We finished in good form having taken about 1hr 15mins. Feeling awesome now and about to celebrate with a pub lunch with running friends.
