...then all runs would be like yesterday's Despite some notable absentees, moderate sized packs enjoyed the long run (blue-green-blue), 8.3k, total ascent, 363m, maximum height, 240m, and the short run (all blue) - 4.0k (or a bit more according to R2D2's GPS), total ascent 217m, maximum height 220m. Starting from a novel position West of our normal haunt on the concrete road, the hares perversely set out south-eastwards back towards the main road up the hill before turning West along the ridge and following mostly familiar tracks clockwise around the top of the hills before some funny stuff in the final valley and home in about 1 hr 20 mins. The short run, which seemed to collect, one or two of the long runners on the way, mostly returned after the long run, and looked remarkably untraumatized by the length and ascent more familiar to a moderate long run. Even Itchy Bitchy seemed to still have a spring in her step and it was the long runners who seemed faintly fazed by the slightly longer than normal trip they had made.
Subsequent events included the welcoming of Pim who may have been on her second run, but what the hell! And the naming of Tata (Hot Buns) and Ting, alias Sex Tour X from HH3 (Ting Tong). Stumps were drawn at close to 8 o'clock when the beer ran out, generously supplemented by Soft Cock who admitted to an outbreak of Changolism and chucked a case of big'uns into the ice box.
