DATE: 19 February 2008
SITE: Spg 102, Jalan Dadap
FRONT HORN: Pee Wee
BACK HORN: Ah Struth
CELEBRATION: Readymix 300 runs
Arriving just in time, I headed off behind Carol, Running Bare in bright orange and Pee Wee who was today’s front horn.
After so many days of rain it was surprisingly dry as we started our run.
Initially I was a bit worried about the local dogs barking and running after us.
This we soon forgot after taking in the spectacular views!
I was excited as I had never ran in this area before!
10 minutes in to the run Carol says; “probably a check coming up”, and there it was!
Early I thought, but Pee Wee found it quickly and we moved in, through the scratchy bracken.
Running Bare was dressed in her VERY orange shorts and wished she had worn something LONGER!
The scenery was fantastic and we felt like explorers.
Magic and Tia Maria were on the ball and found 2nd check!
After a lot of up & down, up & down and more up up & down I realised that this was a proper hash, this is what it’s all about!
At this point we WERE mountaineers.
Pee Wee was on top form and found 3rd check but then her horn broke, knob fell off…………………
Pee Wee was very upset!
The last bit was just beautiful, great running and then a water fall to top it off!
We came out after 45 minutes and headed to Ready Mix for the shout up.
We were all wearing red and gold with a few variations, all for the special celebration of Chinese New Year!
The hares were celebrated for their Very challenging run and we heard fireworks in the back ground.
Hash shit was wanted to be given to Trish for driving the wrong way but as Tango had all the necessities it was not handed out this evening.
Ready Mix’s food came from the Chinese hashers and it was delicious.
Cocktails were served by the very charming Wilhelmina from Down under and Tiffany from Thailand.
The drama of the evening was grief given by drivers complaining over our parking!! How dare they?
Thank you hares for my best run yet and for a delicious spread!! Anna
NEXT RUN: 26 FEBRUARY
