Line Break - On-On Feet

So Run 813!  In the days leading up to the run I watched the skies with trepid concern from the amount of rainfall!  Yes I know it is the rainy season but still fairly new to this outdoor pursuit, I do so love a dry run.  The run is at Santa Cruz in Saddle Grove and the lovely Aerorina was very generous with the use of her house and grounds!  Mountain Goats set the run and Doon, his son and Peter gave us the lowdown on the hash of the day.  Ashe looked un-coordinated in his probably expensive coloured attire, whilst Betty was coordinated in her attire from trainers upwards.  In orange and blue she did stand out a bit, but we are talking about Betty right!!  When we started there was all sorts of ‘ Oh Bacchanal’ as we tried to find the first paper trail.  To be fair it had been simply set, just that we had many turn backs before we found it with the front runners dashing off here and then there.  Me, I just walked in the general crowd and waited for the racing snakes to get it ‘ON ON’. We knew that the trail being set by the Mountain Goats was going to involve a ‘mountain’ at some point especially from where we set off and they did not disappoint, in fact it was virtually straight away.  Nice scenery though (I am talking about the countryside and not the female sort, though there was plenty of that too!)  The stream that we followed was not too steep initially but there were some slippery rocks.  It became even steeper and more slippery as we ascended and, even I ended up on my arse.  I am sure that many were thankful for the numerous vines and saplings that helped us up, and down this mountain.  I did hear a nice young lady next to me suggest that she could swing down on the vines!! There was a tree with he name on it if she had tried.  The river was refreshing and unlike some runs not deep.  Not complaining just an observation!  Then came the road run.

I was somewhere in the middle of the hash running alongside my good lady wife and we managed to stay about there for the whole run.  The one observation by me, and complaints by others especially at the ‘Down Down’ was that there was ‘too much road’  The Iron Lady tried with the sound system at the Down Down but ended up using her own.  ‘New Shoes’ were Kevin, Roxy and one other whose name escapes me.  Ashe was berated for his previous lost key on Run 812 and declared a nominated ‘Poofter’ for the remaining year!  The most entertaining event however was Colin’s skit that neither the photos you may see, nor I can do justice!  Suffice to say it was rib tickling!  The lime was good with some nice fish and chicken provisions.  Richard provided the music on the road at the end courtesy of his Pimp Mobile as we went deeper into Santa Cruz to find a local bar and lime’d some more!  Bring on 814, ON ON!!!
