Peter (Caroline's Dad) also came with us. We left Glasgow at 11am and had a very easy journey to Birmingham. There was some snow but the roads were fine. We arrived at 4.30pm so plenty of time to get something to eat and find the ground.
We met up with Neal's parents who had travelled from Badford on one of the supporters buses outside the ground. They were in a different stand to us.

The last few minutes were tense but Bradford held on to win the overall tie 4-3 and become the first team from the fourth tier of English Football to make it to a major Cup Final since 1962. No wonder Neal is happy ..
A friend from Kilbarchan, Dougie, had a Suunto Ambit on the other week and I was asking him about it. He didn't particularly like it and explained he only had it as his company was doing some work for the makers. So he oftered it to me .... or did I ask? Can't remember but the outcome was he has let me borrow it for as long as I want. He may regret that!!!!
I wanted to try out my new Saucony shoes so decided to run to Elderslie Baths to meet Dougie, who was going on the club run. The shoes felt great and I'm very happy with their first outing. I ran just over 5.5miles. I'm planning another run tomorrow when I'll try out the watch in preparation for Saturday's 30miler with the whw training weekend.
