Honoured by the "Isle of Sanday"

Surprised and delighted, last night, to be honoured by the 540 strong comunity on the Isle of Sanday, Orkney, for “achivements in ultra distance running”.

I had just completed presenting prizes at the Sports Club Dance, when Orkney’s Member of Parliament, Liam McArthur, stepped forward to make the award.

It has always been a source of special pride, that I have been able to develop my athletics career whilst living in this remote island community, which has been my home for almost 30 years.
