A four-medal haul for Cameron Optometry

Posted on 30th June 2014

It is impossible to ignore sport at the moment. The World Cup, Wimbledon, the British
Grand Prix and the build up to the first Scottish Commonwealth Games in almost 30 years.
Ok, so here at Cameron Optometry our sporting prowess hasn’t quite reached those heights
but we’re having a good go!

Between us we’ve clocked up nearly 50 miles of running. Hazel stepped out to complete her
first-ever competitive race. And no, she didn’t start with a gentle 5km to ease her in, she
went full throttle with the grueling Tough Mudder. Branded as “probably the toughest event
on the planet”, the 12 mile assault course saw her tackling electric fences, climbing over
various challenging obstacles, running through water and yes, facing a lot of mud.

Our newest optometrists, Claire, who has completed a full marathon in the past, took on
a half marathon. And with very little training, understandable as has just started a new job
and has two children to run around after, still completed it in under two hours.

And Gillian, an experienced runner who will shortly begin working at the Glasgow 2014
Commonwealth Games
as part of the medical team in the athletes’ village, completed the
half marathon. This time she acted as pacemaker for her twin brother who left her for dust
on his first ever run, not quite the show of gratitude she was expecting!

And finally, Carol completes our medal tally. She was part of the Hairy Haggis marathon
relay, running the anchor leg to bring the team home in a great time.

So sorry to any clients who have come in this month and found one of our team hobbling
around sporting the odd war wound. Now you know why!
