New Year's Day Run

NYD run with Scott and Amanda. We went over to Scotlandwell in Fife to take a look at some of the Devil's Burden Relay course in the Lomond Hills. On our way we up the hill we met Jocelyn Scott of Fife ac and another unidentified runner. It was a really nice day, much sunnier than predicted by the weather men. We ran some of the third leg of the DB as far as West Lomond and then decided to stay high as down the hill was in the shade so we took the path to East Lomond and from there did the 1st and 2nd leg. Lots of Fifers out in the hills, some having a nip at the top of East Lomond but we thought we better not. It was really a longer run than we'd thought we would do and we had nothing to eat and very little to drink so we were having to keep Scott out the cattle troughs by the end and were pretty knackered. Made up for the lack of food first of all in the carpark. (Scott and Amanda had pizza and chocolate!) and then later. (Ate and drank pretty much everything.)
We ran 14.31 miles in 3hrs 05 mins. Hopefully have a better overview of the Lomonds of Fife as a result...
