The Great Scottish Run

In response to WordPress Photo Challenge: Admiration 

I really do take my hat off in admiration of the many thousands of people who train hard (or at least a bit) in order to run in a race to raise money for charity.

I took these pictures a few years ago as a spectator at The Great Scottish Run which is held every year in Glasgow. Its a real fun day with participants ranging from what I would call “proper” runners, to keen amateurs, to people on stilts and clowns, all running to the cheers of the crowd and sometimes to the skirl of the bagpipes.
