Olympic Torch in Kirkwall on Sunday
My debut as an Olympic Torch bearer is fast approaching – this Sunday at about 0945 to be precise.
I understand that I will be the last runner. I’ll enter the track at the Pickaquoy Centre in Kirkwall, run a lap and then light the Cauldron! Job done.
Seems strange that 30 years ago I chose to make a new life in Orkney and now, all these years later, I have been nominated, by the local community, for this honour.
My shortest-ever run – why am I so nervous?
It will be quite a day!
