Shinty player Alison is off and running

LOCHABER Ladies shinty team member Alison MacVicar is recovering from an illness that has blighted her life for six years but says running has helped put her on the right path.

The 20-year-old from Oban has battled anorexia since the age of 14.

At 17, when her anorexia was at its worst, she weighed just 36kg (5.6 stone) and suffered from severe bradycardia, a slow heart rate. Alison reported a resting heart rate of 35 beats per minute whereas most people have a heart rate of between 60 and 100 beats per minute.
