Baxter's Loch Ness Marathon: Homecoming Scotland 2009

Rebel Runners in Scotland

Megaphone's Email Report

Helloooooo -

The attached are a note and photos [above] from Alison Bell, the Communications Director of the Loch Ness Marathon. The photos were taken on the track at the expo the day before the 26.2. As Braveheartowitz can attest, the flag is Scotland's and we were given the scarfs and printed paraphenalia to show in the pics. The one bloke you won't recognize in the pic is a representative of a current campaign known as Homecoming Scotland 2009. Mum Neilan was there too, but alas she shied from the pics.

I had been corresponding with Alison prior to the marathon, originally because I had initially desired an early start to the marathon. There was none, but discussion of our group coming to Loch Ness ensued. One thing led to another, and the press wanted our time to highlight Claire's return to Scotland as well as Smarty's heritage and courageous non-commando kilt wearing for the marathon.

Claire and Smarty received offical proclamations from Homecoming Scotland that clearly embarrassed both of them. Smarty's BBC interview took place post-marathon, and in it he demanded that Scotland send more troops to Afghanistan and more Belhaven (beer) to Delaware.

Loch Ness Marathon was a very country, scenic and reasonably hilly run with about 3500 participants and far less crowd support. Far more sheep than people. Nonetheless it was a good marathon. I felt it had sufficient water and Lucozade (British gatorade) stops. It was great running weather. In fact we were lucky thoughout our whole time there as we had good weather for the castles, distillery, pubs, chapel, bed and breakfast, restaurants, monument, underground tour and left side driving (Jordan and Johnny). Claire did an excellent job setting us up with a daily itinerary and navigation.

Thanks for all your congrats on our runs, and I want to also congratulate Szymanski, Screech and Wesley on their efforts yesterday in Hartford!

This week is BBQ and BarBBQ taking on the 26.2 in Motown and Ontario. Best of luck! Hope you do better than the Detroit Tigers!

Email message from Alison:

Hi Dan,
How are you? I hope you managed to finish without doing too much further damage to your poor wee limbs on Sunday! And I hope you are enjoying / have enjoyed your time in Scotland.

I wanted to thank you and your team very much for your help in the run up to Marathon and for coming along to our photo opportunity on Saturday evening at the Pasta Party. We were delighted to have your help and for your patience as the photographer searched for that special shot! It was all very much appreciated. Please find attached copies of the pictures from the day.

Please pass on my special thanks to Chris too for meeting up with Jackie O Brien of BBC Reporting Scotland to do the interview following his run. I hope you managed to catch the programme on Monday evening.

Many thanks once again and hope to see you in Scotland again soon!

Kind regards
Alison

From Nessie, herself, after inquiry of her whereabouts during race:

Nessie was hiding.....she only comes out for a sighting once in a while. Rumor has it she enjoyed watching her husband running in his new long blue socks. The next Nessie sighting is at Rehoboth Beach a long way from home......
