||A nice route through the forests and into Glentress territory. Glimpses through the trees of wooded gullies and sudden hillocks, made mysterious by darkness and torchlight. Occasionally emerging into wide valleys with the sound of rushing water.
And as a backdrop, alleged hill runner Willie saying “that’s a long hill”, “is that hill finished yet?”, “are we nearly there yet?”, “I’m never believing Kate again” and variations thereof. It was a good distance at 7.14 miles, but by no means the longest night run we’ve done – Broughton 6.96m, Garleton 7.11m, Cramond 7.27m, 12 days of Xmas 7.4m and 8.6m Aberlady.
For afters we went to the former Cross Keys now Wetherspoons where they served a remarkably good pint for a remarkably cheap price, and cheap and cheerful food. I might move to Peebles!
