Run 842 – Parc de Sceaux – Hares French Kiss The Anarchist
September 15, 2013 by Paris Hash House Harriers
Not afraid by the pouring rain in the morning and the cloudy weather , not to mention the Scotch mist, a pretty good number of harriers and harriettes met at the Parc de Sceaux entrance for a reconnaissance run .
As you should all know, Sans Clue is celebrating its 888th run Freezing in Frogland on October 11,12 and 13 with already 70-80 visitors registered and hopefully 20 locals from Sans clue and PH3 to host them.
Saturday run will be in Parc de Sceaux and we wanted to have a flavour of it before this big event.
After due instructions , the pack split into the walker’s group led by Sleeping Sex and the runner’s group hared by French Kiss and The Anarchist .
We rapidly shared the perspective of the Grand Canal and the pack was already complaining about flour marks absorbed by the moisture .
Slack Mac was contemplating water jet , waiting for What’s His Name who won the Dead F… Lost medal . Excited by the greenery , the pack could not resist to cross the vast freshly cut lawns heading to Pavillon de Hanovre . Time for a hash flash before getting into the surrounding bushes
The Parc de Sceaux is great for hares with many round abouts, so tempting for check points and numerous false trails.
As you see in the picture, many years of hash experience were not enough to exceed the average speed of the walker s group , who by several times was ahead of the runners lacking of inspiration to find the good trail.
And the we ran along the “Jardins à la Française” drawn by Lenotre, the gardener of Louis XIV and headed to the Chateau de Sceaux to enjoy the magnificent perspective .
All this due to Colbert, the Finance minister of Louis XIV , who hired the best artists from Versailles , who knows where he got the money from …. Never trust an FD.
Just Dave, our visitor from the US and virgin could not believe of such a beauty and thought the Paris Hash was a community devoted only to culture and art de vivre …….
Enough bullshit , we all know that without the promise of beer stop , they would not have dared running upstairs !
So the pack disappeared behind the Chateau , catching up with the walkers group again and enjoyed an outdoor Picture exhibition of suburban views , of which I selected this one : Chateau de Cartes
So Sleeping Sex was really proud of leading the walker’s group raising the map in her hand . What an achievement of not getting lost while reading a map , never happened in the last 15 years !!!
After a quite long beer stop, the pack moved again and, probably the Heineken effect, got completely lost at the next checkpoint. The only trail left unrecognised was apparently locked with a locker , unless someone, Saving Ryan, got the stupid idea of opening the door to the kindergarten area.
And it seemed that these almost senior fellows lapsed in their second childhood . I have several proofs of evidence but I will take the hilarious smile of Just stupid to convince you that hashing regularly is good for your soul and body.
Then we enjoyed again some nice perspectives of water jets from Lenotre , the front runners getting a little tired of check backs heading upstairs and decided to ask their way to the sculptured dears , which headed them in the wrong direction !
Time for the On In and we regrouped for the celebration by our RA Ooh La la who thanked our hares French Kiss and The Anarchist for this promising reconnaissance run.
RA welcomed our Virgin Just Dave . His sexy legs were so much exciting the Harriettes that the whole male runners pack decided to put their leggings down to show what we are made of !!!
Crutchless from Australia was also duly honoured and punished lately for sex misbehaviour with her fellow Slack Mac although it was unclear what really occurred in the bushes
Front running bastards Saving Ryan and Just Dave followed by Speedy abusing his male position in the walkers group had their down downs
Just Theophile , only 4 months old, delighted from his stroller trail , led by Anaconda, was baptised by the RA and his presumed genitor French Kiss with some drops of beer Many more miscreants Running commentary, Egg Spurt and 3X a lady male acting as Just V completed the long list of sins.
Hash hymn concluded this nice run and the rain only started to fall, well done RA.
The Anarchist .
