A run on a day that was unusually cold and wet

Hare: El Keeno
On On: Bilgoman carpark, Greenmount

With every day around it hot and sunny, this particular Sunday was cold and wet–a welcome but surprising change.  I’d delayed laying the trail due to the threat of rain, and ended up hastily throwing down the flour after lunch. Some runners still displayed signs of a “Doctor Who hangover”…leftover fishfinger and custard cupcakes after the run evidence of their late night shenanigans.

The run/walk looped around the recently prescribe-burned national park. It was quite lucky it was not hot, as there was a complete lack of foliage, so it was rather more like running through a carpark than a forest. Hopefully some of the bush springs back after a bit of rain.

Runners came home after 50 minutes…walkers 5 minutes after that. There were no takers for jumping into the pool for a swim. Slack.

Jacoby Park

Hare: Leapfrog/Passiona
On On: Jacoby Park, Mundaring Weir

The start of today’s walk/run was made all the more entertaining/awful (depends on your perspective, I guess) by the attempts of some participants to cross a small amount of mud…which turned out to be very deep.

Runners set a fairly un-cracking pace (a soggy pace?), meandering about along the trail with some of us in recovery mode from various complaints and ailments.

Guest runners Zimmer Man and Mucky Drawers joined us from Granada. The circle featured a book raffle…Hash nosh was ham and multiple salads. All delish.

A Park Run

We had a great run set by P. Merah… he went to a lot of trouble considering the heat etc. but everyone thought it was great…lovely shady walk for the walkers and a lovely run for the runners. Everything was lovely and all who missed it…SHAME ON YOU…( unless you were ill)
