We were off to join Haddington and East Lothian Pacemakers to run the West Highland Way, as a relay race (the "we" in question being 8 of us from Dunbar).
Four of us (Anne, Ian, Frank and me) travelled to Haddington to meet up with some of the HELP guys and share their mini bus transport.
Despite the early start by the time we had met Frank, Paddy, Ray (and Harvey) then collected George, Eddy and Henry the atmosphere in the bus was quite lively and full of anticipation for the run ahead.
The route had been split into 12 "stages" of various lengths and various degree of difficulty.
A tired dog...
