Bit of a shock to the system to come back to the 7pm run after doing the 7.30 for so long. A good and pacey 9.5 miles that slowed down after we met up with the 7 o’clockers on Braids summit, and returned to KB en masse. Nice evening too.
I was looking for a nice easy run, but we seemed to find quite a few hills on the way to Braids Summit, but it was nice to see the faster group and try to keep up with them on the way off the hill!
Wednesday 7pm social run had 10 participants who took the 7 Hills route To Arthur’s Seat to do the 7 tops. After 3 deer last week it was a Tawny Owl this week on Whinny Hill. We returned via Prestonfield and Inch Park. Run on Strava here
The 7pm group took advantage of the weather and went for a slightly longer run including Allermuir and Caerketton.
The 7.30 group was led by Moira as Willie continues his island odyssey! And the 7pm group may have run further than our pleasant 10k but were any of them wearing a shirt and tie and celebrating their birthday?
With this my last run before heading for Arran and SIPR Marshalling, and then heading to Harris for the LAMM, and the sn being out. and Lynsey Van Der Blyth heading south at the end of May, it was Lynsey’s Call, BEER or ICE CREAM !
Ice Cream it was so we headed for Braidburn Park and then descended on the Garage at Commiston for the cold stuff before a pleasant 5 minutes licking the night away.
The re-invigorated we Summited Blackford before heading for the still closed KB Union.
The 7 o’clockers’ not a pub run
No fancy dress.
No dodgy carol singing.
No mince pies.
No pubs! Although a lady in Burdiehouse Burn Park did ask if we were on the pub run…
Gordon led the way round a variation of the dry pub run on a beautiful evening.
