People can do astonishing things if they have belief, confidence and a bit of recklessness.
By that I don’t mean directing traffic on the M74 or eating a pufferfish. I mean deciding that they are capable of anything, and completely ignoring anyone who tells them otherwise.
Dundee athlete Laura Muir left the field for dead at today’s British Championships, winning the 1,500 metres by a ridiculous margin. She’s going to be a huge star.
Three years ago at the same event she was last. That’s right. Last. The runner which the TV cameras don’t bother with. The ‘getting to championships is a great achievement in itself’ runner.
Wow. Chapeau! As my Aberdeen cycling mate Sandy keeps saying.
