Wot? No mud?

EDL at Broxburn and the ground was icy hard, mud was in short supply (only one very large puddle to negotiate). Some runners were wearing spikes to get a decent grip, when the snow started, I actually thought of crampons!. 3 laps of a gently undulating trail (so-called ‘Lungbuster Hill’ was no problem – but then maybe I wasn’t trying hard enough!) Managed to restrict to 18 the number of those lapping me, which is one less than at Alloa, so maybe I’m improving. Once again I comprised the entire Men’s Team, while the Women’s Team was twice as large: Rachel Campbell and my wife Margaret.

Live in Colinton now, so not an attendee at training. Do most of my running from home - over Capelaw, Allermuir etc and occasionally along the Water of Leith Walkway to Balerno
