Start of lambing season keeps Kyles manager away from game
The race will be Murray’s last major tune-up ahead of her marathon debut in London next month and her spell of altitude training at the Rocky Mountain base of her coach Steve Jones has, she claims, been the best possible way to prepare. “There are great trails, the weather has always been pretty nice when I’ve been there, although it does get a bit chilly in the mornings and evenings,” said the Great Britain internationalist. “I really enjoy the chance to be a full-time athlete when I’m over there for a few weeks as well.”
Murray’s sister Keira will run for Scotland in tomorrow’s Home Countries Cross-country International in Glasgow’s Rouken Glen.
