I have been on the committee for all of the 28 years the club has been going. Mostly as Chairman but had a couple of years as Captain. I have been a club coach for almost 20 years.
I take great pleasure in seeing some of the runners we coached as children still enjoying their running as adults. I was presented with an honorary membership some years ago and still feel privileged to be part of such a great club. I am still enjoying training but don’t race as much as am mostly involved in organising events.
It makes me proud to see how the club has grown, especially over the last few years.
Club secretary for a few years now, have held the post off and on, also as an ordinary committee member over the years, involved in helping organise the club races, also a grade 3 endurance coach helping coach the juniors and seniors, I used to run lots, but these days, just try to encourage as many people as possible. My catchphrase is "excuses are interesting, but irrelevant".
I've been a Metro since 2010, men's captain since 2015 and am the second most successful Brian in the club. I try to lead by example to promote smart training to ensure strength and depth throughout the squad, motivate the guys to more PBs and get to more national/district races! Usually found thrashing out a Pfitzinger session, or more likely ironing my wife's Scotland vest. Biggest achievement is starting the Metro huddle, biggest regret not learning to train harder and smarter sooner.
Aim for 2017: Sub 2:40 marathon.Back to top
Club member for many years now, ladies captain for most of those years. Would like to think I'm pretty decent at motivating and encouraging the girls then basking in reflected glory when they knock out PB's!!
Normally found attached to my dog and getting hauled around Hazlehead woods as it's the only time I run fast these days!
Metro member since 2009, previously 'The Kit Wifie' and now taking a stab at organising Dyce Half and Beach 10k - the club's two main races. Normally found at the end of the reps lane eating Alan Brown's jelly babies. Aim for 2017: a 10K PB - I'll take any, no matter how small. And XC... just for Steve Buchan.
Metro member since 2006. Normally found repping with Alan 'Jelly Baby' Brown or at the bar/dance floor on the Metro nights out. Aims for 2017 - Second Auld Wifie Standard but more importantly staying injury free and continuing to enjoy my running which combats my other loves of boozing and crisps! In addition, encouraging our elder daughter with her running and enjoying socialising with the friends I've made through the club.Back to top
