Well the Words did say to expect the unexpected!! and it was the April Fools' run!!!
School is back in as it was a chalk and paper run - eco friendly said Mad Marg. 5-15pm came around too soon as we gathered in Mad Marg's carport and off dashed Mrs Pingu with the hens scurrying after her - down the simpang we ran and walked and along Jalan Muara much to the bemusement of a lot of passing traffic wondering who the pack were!! We dutifully followed the eco friendly chalk arrows on the roadside until we got to Simpang 370 and into the jungle we ventured.
Down a ladder we had to clamber one by one and along a path until we had to step into the water (or was it sewerage!!) to get across and up another ladder to get back onto the trail.
Just as some of us got up to the otherside to carry on following the road up a steep hill, we looked back as Miss Pink had slipped and fallen so lots of Hens ran back to make sure she was ok, then we came across Legally Blond's guest who was feeling faint and had her head between her knees and Nurse Cath was feeding her some sugar to get her back on her feet.
On we went up the hill and through some new houses being built and past some terrible rubbish strewn around the simpang and eventually the road curved around and back down the ladder we had to clamber though some clever ones knew the way back and avoided the smelly drain again.
Back onto Jalan Muara and there was Simpang 338 just along the road and it was a relief for us to get back to Mad Marg's. A pleasant run of just over an hour with a bit of jungle running (mind the poo!!!) and road running and walking.
The JMs did a song and dance routine for us at the shout up to help the Birthday Girls to celebrate, 2 guests were introduced, Layla from the UK and Anna from the Phillippines and a down down given to them.
Also we cheered Smurf on as she celebrated her 500th run.
Announcements were made - Gabby has plants to sell as she is moving house, PeeWee told us that some of the hashers are appearing in the next production of Hamlet or is it Hashlet so buy a ticket off her and Satu Lagi is looking for people interested in learning about Cameras.
Miss Pink entertained us with a joke involving a husband and wife and a policeman!.
Thanks to the Hares for an unusual run and also for the delicious dips and pita bread supper.
NEXT RUN: - Easter Run at Bukit Serdang, Jln Kota Batu. On on at Dizzy's (next to RBYC). Parking spaces are limited so park carefully on the road.
