I'm Yorkshire born and bred but with a name like Heather Campbell it won't surprise you to learn that my ancestors are Scottish. Maybe that's why this place speaks to my soul. Or more likely everyone feels this way about Scotland because it's big and wild and beautiful and impossible not to fall in love with 🏴. . I just watched the start of the trail race I was supposed to be doing and now I'm sitting in a cafe feeling sorry for myself. I might have had a little cry 😢. I know there will be other races. I know I'll run again. I'm trying my best not to be dramatic about this injury. But I'm so frustrated because I'm doing everything right. No running in four weeks and following all of my physio exercises but if anything the pain is getting worse. I'm making a doctor's appointment as soon as I get home because I want them to double check there's nothing else going on with the foot. . On a more positive note, I have decided that I'm going to run/hike the West Highland Way so that is on my list as a holiday idea for next year. And maybe I'll even come back in 2020 to finish the race I didn't start today.
