It's a weekend for fit and energetic people! Marathon runners. They have my admiration in bucketloads, especially those turning out for the big event being held in Manchester this weekend.
The route for the Edinburgh Marathon passes by close to here. In fact, as I type, the wind is carrying the festive sounds of a steel band up the hill to me in the garden! The dogs and I walked down to the coast road earlier this morning, but even by then there were some runners who were already on their way back to town! Hooray for all them!
