David Langan Shares His Kenyan Running Holiday Experience


Jul 20, 2015

Some of you may recognise David Langan, pictured below, as the #fallinlovewithsport competition winner. David was chosen at random in a competition to launch our new website after he told us why he loved sport so much.

Clearly, David was not exaggerating! Taking inspiration from Adahranand Finn’s ‘Running with the Kenyans’ he set off on a running holiday visiting Iten, Kenya. There he visited numerous villages and trained in gruelling conditions to optimise his performance.

The effects of this training were instantaneous with the high altitude and challenging conditions giving a 5K PB within days of returning home.

David also took part in the Baker Hughes 10K this year and very graciously took some leftover t shirts to donate to those less fortunate.

Thank you to David for sharing his remarkable experience with Sport Aberdeen.
