The Cambridge Boundary Run
We had a great time last Sunday at The Cambridge Boundary Run, our third time there and a run we particularly enjoy. It’s a friendly, relaxed affair organised by students from the university cross-country club, which takes in road and field, trail and track as it circumnavigates Cambridge through the surrounding countryside. Two of us ran: one opting for the half distance, and the other continuing on to complete the full marathon.
Wearing Grace and Ernest, we decided to just enjoy the run, and not worry about speed. (A good thing too: having been decidedly under the weather recently, I very nearly didn’t run, but so glad I did in the end - albeit at a leisurely pace.) It was lovely to be out in the open countryside, following the arrows marked in flour on the ground, accompanied by a motivational message here and there.
Once we finished and found each other, we headed into Cambridge for afternoon tea at Fitzbillies. Their Chelsea buns are legendary and not to be missed! After which, it was time for the traditional celebratory pint of real ale, this time at the cosy Mill Pub. A good end to the day!
