Scotland 24 September: Kendal - Edinburgh

We started off today with a serene boating trip on Lake Windemere.

The rowing was a nice change from all the running we’ve been doing so far. We left our torch on the shore, however.

Since the Scottish team joined us today with two cars, we split up the route towards Edinburgh in four parts, each team running approximately 40K.

That’s peanuts for us veteran harmony runners, so we indulged in an easy-going morning (with the above-mentioned boating trip) and started our running around noon.

The journey took us into the unprecedented scenery of the Scottish landscape. We were fortunate enough to have a day full of golden sunshine.

The glens and hills of South-Scotland, dotted with sheep, villages and farms, smiled at us benignly.

Near the end of our part of the running we passed through a small, picturesque town called Ecclefechan. In this town the famous poet Thomas Carlyle was born in 1795. A tall statue serves as a proud reminder of this in the town’s centre.

Naturally we took the opportunity to capture all the scenic beauty of today on film.

Scotland really has a magical feel to it.

It felt like at any moment a fairy or hobbit could cross our path and run or fly along with us for a few miles.

Then in the evening when the mist set in, that magical, almost mystical feeling increased.

Because of our indulgent side-trips into nature we took it very easy and arrived in Edinburgh around eight ‘o clock in the evening. Our friends from the Sri Chinmoy Marathon Team in Edinburgh had prepared a lovely meal for us and we enjoyed it to our hearts’ content.
