New Year's Day Treble For Ian

While most of us were still in bed on New Year's Day, 50 something, Ian Goudie made a great start to 2011. Ian ran 65 races in 2010, including travelling 6000 miles to run the Bangkok Marathon. He ran three races last week - Xmas, Boxing Day and December 27. To maintain this running momentum Ian decided to get 2011 off to a flying start and to run three races in Edinburgh on January 1 - and he did very well.

Ian told scottishrunning guide.com "In the first race which was the Edinburgh Park run at 9.30 I finished 30th in 20:45. I then took part in the Portobello Promathon at 11.30 which is a 4 miler. I was 89th with a personal best of 27:10. In the third race which was the One o'clock run down the Royal Mile I got a personal best of 5:26 and was first veteran (over 35) and 12th overall in the race. What a privilege it was to run down the ancient Royal Mile, steeped in history as it is."

We're showing the photographic proof that Ian did actually did take part in all three races. Well done Ian!
