Our Hare Labib prepared quite a long >10k trail with only 3 check points , no check backs and in spite of the fact he did it twice , the cold drizzle nearly washed out the beginning of the trail !
So the Hash instructions were rather quick at the start but the departure was postponed waiting for Slack Mac , fighting with his GPS on one hand , a beer on the other hand to find the Hash circle , so that the GM democratically decided on his own that Slack would catch up at the beer stop with his Slack mobile.
A macho pack comprised of only one regular Sex Tourist, visitors Wild Thing from NY Ithaca Hash House harriers, Up My Ass from New Jersey Summit H3 , now relocated in Paris , who promised to attend regularly, a long term returnee Can’t get it up who signed for a 3 Haring runs for his repentance, a virgin Just Stephane.
Fortunately Little Red our Bouffe meister of the day was not the only harriette, as Psycho Bitch from Hell made a remarked apparition by the runners pack.
Then we started to follow the hare to point in the right direction and I confess I did not paid attention to the constant change of directions and long running trails , focused on chatting with the ladies at the back, GM’s privilege !
The drizzle , the rain, gusty winds , the cold ……. but we were all brave and finally reached the Parc de la Roseraie at L’Hay les Roses, but no roses , we need to come back in Spring there, where we had the long awaited beer stop after the first or was it second check point and 6 k only !
Slack Mac finally joined us and deserved his beer , after accepting beeing our RA and the drizzle stopped, and a bright interval encouraged the pack for the second loop.
A couple of long streets and we reached” le parc des hautes bruyeres”. This run was decidedly too flat so Up my Ass , followed by the Anarchist climbed up the only hill , while Can’t get it up was miserably slipping in the shiggy .
Only 2 k more and the On In circle appeared.
We celebrated the hare Labib for this challenging run and Little Red for the home made Tagines .
Slack Mac took command of the circle
The Hash Hymn concluded the ceremony and we enjoyed the tagines , cheese and wine .
A good start for this hashy new year 2015.
