    Pretty windy but my fastest mile to date. Great to have people to run the magic mile with, thanks to Karla and all involved!

    In short: PB missed by 1s and target missed by 6.01 seconds!

    In full: The disappointment of missing my PB by 1 second in the Edinburgh Magic Mile was definitely made better by finishing first, catching up with Helen Falconer and going for a few mile cool down run and a chat with GB Olympic marathon runner Freya Ross! A very nice lass! Might even now have a running club at last!

    Great to try something a bit different and very pleased with my time. The chance to have my pace set my a GB Olympian was an inspiration
