Hare: El Keeno
On On: Strettle Rd, Mahogany Creek
With the threat of rain, I laid the flour thick (going through four bags, which is a personal record), but the weather ended up remaining fine. Most of the run was kept within the Strettle Road Reserve, which is a nice bit of bush with some narrow winding paths, as well as some broader fire breaks. Runners basically ran all four sides of the block (it’s not really very big), with a bit of zigzagging in the middle. Runners and walkers alike popped out onto a short section of road just shy of Don and Annie’s Mahogany Creek Store (I know it has a new name now…but I can’t quite recall it–the second-hand place).
In the short stretch that we ran along the bridle trail, someone decided to help us by kicking away much of the flour, but thankfully it didn’t cause any problems on that straight section. There were lots of cyclists and walkers out that day, which is always good to see.
I have to admit to providing vague directions Home for the walkers, and a few managed to wander in the wrong direction. So I will be sure to include a bit more flour next time. (My legs are still aching from that extra run around the block look for them, so that has learned me!)
That’s it. On On
