Gavin’s good friend Davie Shannon ran the Loch Ness Marathon September 28th in support of gavinliveslife.com.
Here’s a report from Davie on his challenging experience and photos from his sweet victory that followed.
Well done Davie!
4:16:46 was my time.
A tough, tough course. Very hilly, challenging, but beautiful scenery.
I was running well until at about 18 mile. My right calf muscle cramped up. I struggled for the next 3-4 miles before finding a pace that I could cope with.
I was so delighted to finish for team Gavin.
I said at the end ‘never again’ but now I’ve had a change of mind! I’ll definitely go back to Inverness at some point to run this route again.
Myself, Kerrie and the kids had a great weekend. The weather was kind to us. It was ideal running conditions, dry, the sun was out but not too hot.
We stayed for two nights in a local hotel and had a of couple lovely dinners out and most importantly got the job done for Gavin.
