Bollocks!

The BAD News: Due to a knee injury on 25 March I have had to pull out of the Hoka Highland Fling and will be out of running for the next couple of months! This is a knock on from the loss of my ACL in my right knee in 2007. Well, I have managed 4 marathons and 12 ultras since then, but this is the third time its flared up and knocked me out of a race. Grrrrrrr!!!!!

The GOOD News: The knee does not seem to get aggrivated by cycling, so I WILL be taking part in the Etape Loch Ness on April 26th.

If you have supported so far, it is appreciated. If you are about to, remember, two ultramarathons have already been achieved this year and the thing holding me back here is mechanical, NOT asthma or diabetes.
