RUN NO. 2252 - MATAMATA 18 OCT 2011

RUN NO. 2252
DATE: 18 OCT 2011
HARES: Readymix/Jenni of the block/Alice in Wonderland/Mani Mouse

The run began by following the "road in progress" for half a kilometer before turning left into the jungle. It was a bright sunny evening and with the exception of the approach we were always in the shade so the light was lovely on what is always a very pretty run.

There were quite a few ups and downs but nothing humungous, though still i felt reasonably exhausted. One of the cheques (I think Dizzy meant "checks") was an on back which always pleases me hugely, and for a very brief period I was up with the front runners. A state of affairs that rarely last further than the next incline, or decline come to that, but oh it does make me feel fit; and I get to hear the front horn as well as the back, thank you to both.

The path was good and wide most of the time and underfoot was soft and not slippy. A couple of drains near the exit were well marked. Everyone was out before dark, which is quite early at the moment (NB unlike this weeks run) No wet feet this week and no rain either, at least not until after the run.

We had two new members; Welcome to you both Hazel & Debra.

Alice in Wonderland, Jenny from the Block, Readimix & Mani celebrated their
Birthdays with the other October Girls.

The hares laid a scenic run, including organising the weather and provided a truly delicious meal, all home cooked goodies. The Vietnamese rolls were prepared before our very eyes! and, the Birthday cake was yummy. Thank you to you all.

Hash Hint -
When holding back branches please release carefully. If they spring back they may hurt someone behind you.

NEXT RUN: SPG 672 KOTA BATU - Long run - bring torches - Turn around after 30-45 minutes if you arrive late. On on at Dizzys - PLEASE PARK SENSIBLY.
HARES: Dizzy/Never Wrong
