Everyone a winner

It was great to see the pictures of thousands of runners of all ages from all over the country and further afield taking part in the Paisley 10K and 3k Fun Run to raise much needed cash for loads of worthy causes. What a fantastic day it was with a wonderful atmosphere and plenty of happy faces crossing the finishing line. Renfrewshire's Deputy Provost John Caldwell, who is 66, may have finished last but he and Renfrewshire Carers Centre, who will benefit from his magnificent efforts, are both winners in my book. It was a double for Elderslie too with well known villager, Callum Hawkins, who was in last year's Team Scotland squad, crossing the line first to take gold. His Kilbarchan AAC team mate Gemma Rankin took the women's title. Congratulations to everyone who took part and achieved their own goal.
