Peterhead Jogscotland Group of the Year 2008!!

Well as i write this i still cant quite believe it, we have been chosen as the Jogscotland Group of the Year, and i have been chosen as the Jogscotland Leader of the Year for 2008!!! Thanks to everyone who took the time to nominate me it has been quite overwhelming the level of support the group and myself have had from all quarters!! As you can imagine we had a really memorable night and meeting Paula Radcliffe made it even more special. We really love being part of Jogscotland, and we have made so much special friends since we started Peterhead Jogscotland. A special thanks to all our wonderful jogscotland leaders we couldn't have done it without you and really appreciate your support and enthusiasm in making a big impact in the blue toon and beyond. We have lots more photographs and i will try and get them all on the blog as soon as possible. In the meantime please join us tomorrow night even if the weather does not allow a jog we will be celebrating!!

Help For Heroes 5 and 10k

John Ross During His Last Tour Of Duty In Iraq

Hazel's son John leaves for Basra in Iraq on the 22nd November. John is a diver in the Royal Engineers and is being posted to Iraq for 6 months. This will be his 2nd tour of duty in Iraq. Please pray that John and his colleagues all return safe and well from their tour of duty.

As a result we have renamed our 5 and 10k on Saturday 6th December Help For Heroes 5 & 10k. We have purchased 100 Help For Heroes wristbands and we are inviting you to wear a wristband on that day to show your support for John and our wonderful troops, who give up so much that we might enjoy our freedom. Hazel will be jogging the 10k in aid of Help For Heroes (a charity which looks after our troops should they be injured during the current conflicts). Why not sponsor Hazel or simply give a donation in return for a Help For Heroes wristband. Even if they are not a member of Peterhead Jogscotland why not invite some of your friends to take part in our Help for Heroes 5 or 10 k i am sure they will enjoy it, and we will have lots of eats afterwards. Simply give their names to me or email me at by Wednesday 26th November. Everyone completing the Help For Heroes 5 or 10k will get a medal, and eats afterwards at Living Waters Church. Wouldnt it be wonderful if all our Help For Heroes wristbands were used on the day!!

Thanks for supporting John, Hazel & Family and all our wonderful troops,

Jogscotland Awards 2008

Well i quite cant believe we have been short listed in all three categories for the Jogscotland Awards 2008 down at the Marriot in Glasgow on the 22nd November. To make it even more special, the special guest on the night will be Paula Radcliffe fresh from her win in the New York Marathon.
Its hard to believe what we have achieved since we started Peterhead Jogscotland at the Community centre before we moved to Catto Park. On that very first night in February last year Yvonne came along with Joe and by her own omission struggled around the route, 18 months on by her own determination and will power (and the encouragement of all at Peterhead Jogscotland) she is now training for a half marathon. Yvonne and Stuart Main (who shows terrific spirit despite the injuries he suffers) both have been short listed for Jogscotland Acheiver of the year. When you think there is over 10, 000 members of Jogscotland this is a wonderful, wonderful achievement and should not be underestimated. Whatever the outcome on the night we are really proud of both Stuart and Yvonne and all the members of Peterhead Jogscotland.
We are also short listed for the Group of the Year, which is just wonderful and when think there are around 300 groups in Scotland its amazing!!
Thanks to everyone who voted for me to be Jog Leader of the Year. As i have said time and time again i love being part of Peterhead Jogscotland and all friends i have made through it. I could never do what i do without the help and support of other leaders, and the patience of my wife!!
91 people attended Peterhead Jogscotland this week with the leaders thats over a 100 people. I remember that very first night we started, one of the receptionists at the Community Centre said to me "You may get a turn out for a start but the people of Peterhead dont stick anything and your numbers will soon dwindle, how wrong she was!!!!
Next year we start a beginners course again on Monday 26th Jan why not encourage a friend or family member to come along and join us. You never know they might be our next Achiever of the Year!!!! and they may even end up at the Award Cermony in Glasgow next year, or the year after like Yvonne or Stuart!!
