My Stirling Marathon training continued today with another half marathon around the streets of Stirling.
Even running in the pleasant spring afternoon sunshine there were many emotions I had to go through to run 13.1 miles especially when you know you have to double that distance for the marathon.
It should be noted that I did complete my first marathon in Edinburgh last year so I do know whats it's like to double that distance. (but please don't remind me)
Whether it's physical pain or mental challenges you will experience it all as you start to run those distances.
In a way I compare it to running a business. 21 years of varying degrees of challenges each week/month - counter balanced by the end game and the many satisfying days of watching your company and employees progress.
To coin a phrase 'when the going gets tough' in running and in business you will at least question what you are doing and at worse feel like giving up when the pressure and pain increases but during that time that is the most vital and important part of your journey, it's at this stage you must muster all the remaining energy you have, you must focus the mind and banish those mind games, it will be tough, it will be tiring, giving up is the easiest solution at this stage.
But you need to adjust your pace, adjust your focus and concentrate on the vision of the end game, go on - keep on adjusting your pace and focus, the hurdles are getting easier, the pain is easing, the reward at the end will far outweigh the pain along the way.
Not everyone runs a marathon or runs a business because it's not easy but those that truly know how it will feel at the finish line, how satisfying it will be to watch your employees progress through your company or at the winning of a contract or how proud you will be at your son or daughters weeding day know it will all far outweigh the challenges and the pain you will encounter along the journey BUT importantly you do need to experience the journey along the way to achieve and appreciate the end result.
I'm happy to offer and help with advice to anyone looking to set up or grow their company. Just get in touch
I am taking part in the first ever Stirling Scottish Marathon on 21st May 2017.
After completing my first marathon in Edinburgh last year I have decided to take part in this new event in my home city of Stirling and I will be supporting Scotland's Health Charity - Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland.(CHSS).
My father died in 2010 from 'COPD' - Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease and I hope that you will support me to raise funds for CHSS. Their mission is to improve the quality of life for people in Scotland affected by chest, heart and stroke illness, through medical research, influencing public policy, advice and information and support in the community.
Many of you have supported my past charity events and I am very grateful for your support and any donations you give to my CHSS fundraising would be fantastic and greatly appreciated.
Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving - they'll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they'll send your money directly to the charity. So it's the most efficient way to donate - saving time and cutting costs for the charity.
The political landscape of Scotland and UK took another twist today when First Minister Nicola Sturgeon stated her intention to start the procedure for a potential second Scottish Independence Referendum.
With the upcoming UK exit from the EU and subsequent removal of Scotland - who voted to remain part of the EU, accompanied by frustration with the lack of compromise and negotiation coming from the UK Government, our First Minister believes the option of Independence for our country or the option of a Conservative led Brexit should be a choice the people of Scotland have the opportunity to make.
The debate over the political future of Scotland is now back on. We can only hope that those who will once again have the future of Scotland in their hands will listen to all the options from both sides and arrive at a decision that not only is best for the present time but also for the future of our own children and future generations of those who live and work in Scotland.
How powerful is this story.
As adults we should take time to reflect on how our young children view life - we could learn a lot.

Installed Alarm and CCTV for us and I can now view and control my phone while away from the house which is what I wanted. Gave us good advice on the systems before the job and we are well pleased with the quality of the final job.
