Cloudy with no chance of meatballs

Hare: El Keeno (me)
On On: Sculpture Park

It was miserable
I can’t forget
I set the run that day
I got so wet
Then the runners came
They gathered round
They did not look impressed
by muddy ground
We set off on legs
that lacked much vim
Then Biggles gassed us all
I frowned at him

We ran as Hashers do
Which is not fast
We all were fit and strong
(long in the past)
It all was going well
Our home was nigh
When our trail disappeared
It made me sigh
I’m sick of rhyming now
And I’m sure you
are tired of reading this
So I think I’ll stop

Ok, so it was cold, wet, and someone rubbed out about a kilometre of trail at the end.  Thankfully, it was a straight length from there all the way home, and some of the front walkers had made some arrows in the mud to help the others…so it all worked out.
Free beer and Skimpy greeted us at Home with a much appreciated cake.  Thanks to you guys, too.
Silent P was awarded with her name badge–a very high honour in Hash (it’s all downhill from there).

That was it. I was freezing so I disappeared ASAP after the circle was done.

On On,

Success!

Hare: Free Beer
On On: Success Reserve

 

This weeks run set by Free Beer was just great with runners and walkers intermingling all over the place ! No real dramas and everyone came back safe and sound ! We finished off the run with a SOUPER dinner of… (you guessed it !) P n’ Ham swoop !!! As well as witnessing a rather splendid sunset !!! However, all that time El Keeno was just cooking a roast ! Ah well.. ! It was a special occasion as it was Free Beers birthday !…Yay! (but there were no actual free beers)

-Pink Bits

 

El Keeno’s note: That bloody roast took me all bloody day to cook!  It was a pain, and I intend to serve dinner guests with porridge from now on.

No peasants please, we’re noble.

Hare: SRB
On On: Noble Falls

I thought the run was great, very scenic and for the walkers, very well marked ! We did have an  EXCEPTIONALLY STINKY DOG ( Hoover aka Benji )  who had rolled in a particularily DEAD thing ! Oh the PONG !!! However, the runers had fun, I think ? Everyone came back and no dramas ! Circle was quick as it got cold.

Scarlett does it again ….

TTTThats all

PB xxxxxxxxx

 

Note from El Keeno: I assume there was no madness this time of runners semi-disrobing and jumping into the freezing water.

Tickhead’s Diabolical Something-or-other (I forget)

Hare: Tickhead
On On: Taffe Rd, Swan View

A foreboding bog roll warned us of what was to come–a message of doom scrawled across its twin-ply leafs.  Yes, Tickhead read from a roll of toilet paper before the run, getting us ready for what he promised to be a torturous affair.

Well, some bits were indeed gruelling, such as the extended assault of the dry creek bed, over innumerable irregular stones that challenged the suppleness of my knees, ankles and sanity.  The rest was really quite nice, with some great (and new to me) tracks, ending with a pretty stellar view of the city and coastal plain.  SCB suffered a sprained thumb during the run, and some PTSD resulted.

A returned runner of olde was given a naming, so we now have “Silent P” in our midst (who also suffered a swollen ankle).

I got off lightly, with some mere bloodletting of my shins.  We also came across a couple of bushwalkers who asked for directions back to civilisation, and I think were secretly lost, but too proud perhaps to admit it.

Anyway, a good run.
