Praised by faint damnation

Variously judged to be anything between 9 and 11 kilometers, it was logged on the day as 7.8k, but Mapsource calls it at 8.2k, so let's compromise at 8k - as predicted about 1k longer than our usual runs (see Run #1645 below, and there were no false trails so what you see is what you got!). Also overestimated were the number of checks - 14 not 15, two of which should probably have been marked as F's, but what the hell let's do something DIFFERENT occasionally! Total ascent was a modest 266 meters considering that the highest point was 246 meters. The short run departed the long run just before check 8, followed the road down and was widely lauded, unlike the long run which was faintly damned by most who did it. There's no accounting for taste!

    Aw, we were just giving you a hard time. It was a great run. (Now if we can only find out why other people's 7k runs take an hour, but your 8k ones take 1:30-1:45.)
