It was a cool evening after several days and the whole morning’s rain, a wet run was possible but as the afternoon fined up, a great run set by our most experienced hares with an accumulated total of 1100 runs, became a reality.
I was running late due to some traffic jam on Jalan Muara and after signing in headed up the hill towards the water tower on the usual in at 5.30pm.
Bettina and I noticed some stray paper at the fork of a trail and concluded that must have been first check laid back – apparently found by Alison and Cheryl. We then headed down towards the stream and thru lots of trips and the usual thorny trails we wound our way around. We were pleased to soon catch up with the rest of the runners.
2nd check, back again was called, and found by Alison and Naj (self confessed “Nag”). The waterfalls and gentle cascades were both soothing to the ears and our heels as the day was indeed becoming increasingly hot and balmy.
Magic Roundabout did not miss a trick this time and found 3rd check. Apparently there was a 4th but whether it was found or by whom I did not manage to find out. However, we were soon out – yours truly in half an hour and I guess for the rest of the pack within 45 minutes from the start. We were all out before it got dark.
We quickly changed and a photo shoot with our Founders Day gear ensued as we milled around and socialized while Smurf raced into the distance to the beach to collect our fish and chips tea.
The shout up progressed with the usual order and two new members welcomed. The hares were congratulated for their run achievements. As we were in the middle of Chinese New Year celebrations, crackers and fireworks could be heard in the distance and some even sounded really close. Alas, when hashit was thrown at Naj for parking her car in a way blocking public access, our own fireworks went on display! After an exchange of choice speeches, screeches from tyres and the driver with honking of the horn saw a car leaving the site and disappearing into the distance….. never to return? The hens thought they were attending a children’s matinee!
With the drama over for the evening, and the announcement of more Chinese New Year celebrations for the following week with the run at Jalan Dadap and the on on at GM Readymix. The theme was to be gold and red in line with the celebrations. May be we will see more fireworks then!
Thank you hares for a great run and good chow! On on. Trailblazer
