No cumulative placings for the series yet, but yesterday’s Borders XC at Chirnside won’t have done anyone’s prize prospects any harm at all. Andy Fallas won the race, with Mike Reid in second place. Charlotte Morgan continued her battle with Dianne Lauder, taking the top spot on this occasion (and 8th overall!). That makes it 2 wins apiece heading into 2015, so still everything to play for. Many other good performances from lots of Carnethies.
It was good to see several Carnethies at the Chirnside race of the Borders Cross Country today. The snow and ice had disappeared to ensure the paths were good and muddy. I even felt some warmth with the sun on my back (but maybe that’s a sign, as if I need one, that I was running too slowly?). I persuaded a bystander to take a few photos of our group, but in every one there is a rogue bum and knee photo bombing the image.
