Lovely run

It was not a lovely run at all. I lied. It was awful and torturous. In other words: a normal day at Hash. I am still limping several days later, although my recent lack of exercise may have something to do with that.

We started from Strettle Rd in Mahogany Creek, heading into a patch of reserve that I suspected was a mite too small to contain P Merah’s machinations. Turns out I was right, as we spent little time in the area and were instead flung southwards like so many tiny meteors sling-shotting around the sun (although in a more wheezing, grumbling manner). An eventual drink-stop compensated us for our complaints, and we soon returned home to a selection of treats and a few choice tick bites (I am still scratching).

 

 

1800 Shades of Lingerie.

On this monumental and auspicious occasion, we were gathered at the back of the Sculpture Park (so as not to frighten the children … or parents …) Sadly, we did not have as big a group as we had hoped, but despite that the outfits were lovely and lingery to also celebrate Valentines Day (Oh the lurve ! ! !)

After the obligatory photo shoot (so Leapfrog doesn’t complain !) we were sent off to completely embarrass ourselves around the township of Mundaring…… round the pub, round the shops and cafes and round the neighborhood. No…it was NOT embarrassing it was liberating and fun…. GPS got a thumbs up from 2 young lasses in a car (sly old dog….!) everyone smiled at us and no-one got lost. In fact walkers and runners came back within 15 minutes of each other. That was the clever plan of the Hares, Dripper and Pink Bits as we had a feast to prepare and consume to celebrate the 1800th run. We had a celebratory drink that was not too popular (Dripper wanted to get rid of some sticky fortified wine which was mixed with soda water to dumb it down……..err…..lessen the sweetness)

Charges were few but NASTY as someone slipped that Sarspirella product in the down-downs…….then it was off to the BBQ’s for lovely “Deconstructed” (very in foodie style !)  burgers and snaggers.

No one went home hungry and even the woofers had a few treats. As the sun set we went home replete and Leapfrog will not pass out at the cost of the event.

Long and Bloody Marathon Run or Lost ?

The Tickheads do live off the beaten track but we didn’t expect Hashers to :

  1. Get lost
  2. Take a long way round to get there.

3.Go to the wrong venue. (err… not a real excuse)

  1. Turn up late dressed in lingerie (mind your own business… we cater for all tastes)

However, despite that we had a good turnout and were directed by the Hare towards the ON-ON. Of course it was a vague wave of hand in that >>>>>> direction which confused some of us. Off we marched at a cracking pace, runners took off like the wind, (bet they wished they hadn’t) and on and on and on and on and on we went…walkers following a long  stretch of power line access and some of it as very much uphill…(no hills in Chidlow  ?) After the FIRST HOUR  we were almost at the On Home mark but it was still another 10 minutes before the house came into view…..(Pink Bits had been delirious a while back swearing she had seen the house in the bush….!)

Watching in anticipation of the runners coming back, we had a beverage and waited some more and some more and some more  then after the SECOND hour there was some movement in the bush and a front running Hasher was seen coming in….BUT… Whoops…he tripped and  fell 2 minutes from home and needed First Aid assistance from Pick-up Chick (Blood everywhere and he had 3 deep gashes on his knee…poor lad was in a bad way but Pick-up didn’t sew it up as she forgot the needle and thread…..Hashing is a bit dangerous !)

Yes the RUN lasted about 2hours ! ! ! but wait….. one more Hasher was missing so when Tickhead had gone off to look for him, he was ok but wanted to come in on his own so, we waited and waited and waited and then he came back…10 minutes was about 20…All up a marathon of 12 km, I believe….

In the circle the Hare was fined numerous times, especially for setting such a long run in a vehicle, (naughty, naughty..) for providing the runners with a drink stop but not the walkers…(really, really, really naughty !…) and other charges were insignificant in the scheme of things

It was an awesome run despite the complaints……pity Franga missed it…….

He would have thought it a walk in the park …..!

On-On
