Great Scottish Run 2022 Half-Marathon

Runners standing behind a starting line on the streets in Glasgow.

I just finished running the Great Scottish Run half-marathon event in Glasgow. This was a race I signed up for originally in 2020 and the first race I’ve done in at least five years, maybe more. It was long overdue.

Even though I generally do these events alone and don’t do much other than do the event and leave, it’s still a special feeling to push yourself and join others who are doing the same. If nothing else, I love running no matter what and any excuse to do it more is worth it in my book.

The route and my time. Both were better than I thought they would be!

The weather was perfect and I finished just 6 minutes off my best time.

Also there were bagpipe players at every mile.

A great Scottish run indeed.

Still 11 miles to go at this point but the bagpipes were in full force.

I heard there were twenty thousand runners at the event and if felt like that at the start.

All done.

  1. That’s a great time. I’ve never been to Glasgow so that may be a way to visit it one day! I’m glad you’re enjoying your running, I’m feeling the joy too!
