The Spanish have a neat way to express ‘to wear for the first time’, a single word – estrenar. So – anoche Richard and I hemos estrenado nuestros Speedcross 4s nuevos. Striking and lovely yellow and black ones. Only mine are too big. I have history with shoe buying. ‘Ajeno’ is another neat word meaning ‘somebody else’s’, which is what these shoes should be.
On a rather tarmac-y (though Willie denies it) run we explored the rather scruffy environs of Craigmillar castle, and enjoyed it! Digby
The Spanish have a phrase, often used when visiting Scotland: “Mi bicicleta está en llama”. It roughly translates as: “Man, I’d really like to run up Caerketton hill”. With such sunny and dry conditions, it seemed only right to start heading out to the Pentlands, and as Caerketton got closer we decided to take the a line to the summit. It’s always a worthwhile run on such a great evening, and we were rewarded with the finest views across the capital (“¿has visto mi cabra?”). Time and distance were creeping up, so a simple route back to KB, and then to Leslies for a couple of beers. Jim
