KB 5 Miles 5 March 2016

It was nice to get back to this part of the city, we lived near KB for around 25 years and while I had never run this race before, I had run the route many times. Also nice to meeet some Harriers I hadn’t met before: Alan, Billy, Julie and Rachel. In fact I had met Alan before – we were at school together (and you haven’t changed a bit Alan).
Conditions were a bit cool (freezing!) at the start, but it turned out to be good running weather. Despite knowing the route, I still, as usual, went off too fast and it took me a couple of K (and the hill up past Midmar Allotments) for me to settle in to my usual sedate pace. I really enjoyed the run along Braid Hills Drive, with its great views of Arthur’s seat. Kilometer 7 was great, all downhill, then came the sting in the tail, up Mayfield Road and into KB. On the run in I managed to hold onto my (lowly) place and get a welcome from Davy Cairns

    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
