Hares: Free Beer and Skimpy
On On: Padbury Rd, Darlington
There were some interesting and amusing undies on display for the Valentine’s Day run. As usual, Leapfrog brought a bag of tricks to decorate those who forgot/couldn’t be bothered (of which I was one). GPS was suitably fined at the end for driving in normal gear, unwilling to wear his getup in his car in case he was recognised. (Well, perhaps fair enough.)
Walkers followed the runners, keeping up for the first part of the run due to to the devious nature of the trail and the many false trails (of which I found many!). We reached Darlington Rd and then turned about to head back west at a lower altitude. From here, we left the walkers behind. Passiona and I stumbled upon Home after barely 30 minutes out and decided to head back into the bush for a bit more exercise–as it turned out we’d followed the walkers’ trail by mistake. The rest of the trail soon made itself apparent and we were soon pushing through thick, leg-scratching, blood-letting scrub. End of the run was a steep climb back up the side of Greenmount hill to Padbury Rd.
Walkers beat the runners back, but there were still plenty of chocolate loveheart-shaped brownies available. (Thanks, Tickhead!)
We also got to s-ng happy birthday to Baby Dosh, who was 1 year old. (She didn’t look a day over 11 and 3/4 months!)
A pat on the back went to Frodo for running about and calling back some wayward walkers. (Is there any other kind?)
