On the evening of Saturday 25 August, Rob and I dressed up as Christmas trees and, in the company of about 50 others, minced about above Hunters Bog for a couple of hours in the name of art as part of the Edinburgh International Festival production “Speed of Light” [you’re the one with hands on hips, Rob!]. The audience consisted of hundreds of people walking up Arthur’s Seat carrying light poles [poles with lights, although doubtless they were pretty light], each paying £24 for the privilege. Highlight (for me): The Mexican waves we did. Good for stretching out un-used muscles [possibly suitable for the warm-up at training?] Excitement: Doing our “starburst” [running off and back in a random direction] at the top of Salisbury Craigs and hoping no-one ran over the edge. Distance: about 4km and a couple of hundred metres climb. Results: None, but earlier nights of the production got some lukewarm 3-star reviews. However, to paraphrase Dr Johnson, it was not so much a matter of whether the it was done well, rather that it was done at all.
