Fit at the fabulous highland games

Bearsden and Milngavie Highland Games had 33 stalls, Garscube 10k road race, tug of war, world haggis hurling, pipe bands, highland dancing, archery, children’s games and rides and so much more for families to enjoy; a real family focused event! The event is an annual event and held at the West of Scotland Rugby Club, 11 am till 4pm. It is a day out for all the family.

WOW! What a day we had at the Highland Games 2016 with two of my favourite boys; dad, Craig and husband, Gary. If there was a prize for the most direct and amusing chat it would go to dad #myinspiration.  Today was about chatting to new people, seeing familiar faces and introducing Fit + Fabulous to Bearsden and Milngavie. We succeeded! Thank you to everyone that popped in to said hello.

Our aim of the day was to promote Fit + Fabulous who’s ethos is about making time to enjoy exercise and change dietary habits to build a happier, healthier lifestyle for all the family. To all Glasgow folk, thank you for embracing us today.  The best line of the day was “what would you do for me luv? Turn ma wheelchair into two wheels instead a four.” If I could I would!

Being a mum, the main highlight for me was seeing so many families taking part in all the activities despite the Scottish weather. See you next year! 🙂

Perfect 10k trail route

I feel so lucky to live to close to many perfect trail routes to run however there is nothing quite like the start of the West Highland Way (“WHW”) and into Mugdock Country Park.  The path undulates, there is a small climb and the path underfoot is ideal for all seasons. It is mostly woods surrounding the path and this morning there were large patches of blue bells and butter cups.

Starting at the Drumclog car park, off Mugdock Road next to Mugdock Reservoir the path joins the WHW for 3 miles past Craigallan Loch. After the houses there is a gate on the right had side with a steep climb through Loch Woods to Broadmeadow Road and into Mugdock country park. There are numerous trail paths through the park to chose from. We followed one to the South Lodge car park which rejoins Mugdock Road.

Why not go and investigate the route and tell me what you think?
