As one of the club’s hill grand prix races (or maybe because people felt the need to do something other than eating and sleeping after the Christmas break…), Feel the Burns was very popular among Penicuik Harriers with a team of 11 travelling down to Selkirk.
The weather was brilliant (crisp and clear) and so was the organisation by Selkirk Fund Runners. Some of us were very keen for a PB (no names, right Rob!?) and some were just happy to be out running/ racing again. It was the first Feel the Burns and the first time on the Southern Upland way for me, and it didn’t disappoint, especially not the down hills.
I’m not sure if Rob got a PB in the end (I think he beat Michelle and that’s what counts), but our fast Gemma certainly had a strong race, I heard she was even happy with her down-hills 🙂
It was also good to have Sadie racing with us again, we all missed her lining up at the start line with us. Thanks again for Selkirk Fund Runners for putting up this race, everyone had a great day out and we’ll definitely be there again next year!
