Fairy Snow and Fuggles drove in through the circle on the stroke of 6 o’clock, as Yellow Peril started to give the hares’ briefing in front of Binsted Church, telling of “one or two fast bits, lots of nice fine views, a little bit of shiggy, some ponds, … 2 regroups, no real short cuts, really, so if you decide you’ve had enough by about half way round you’ve had it! … Blobs in sawdust, markings in flour, a couple of check-backs, or more.”
And so we set off over hill and dale, past cricket match and fields of maize and corn stubble, ending as the sun sank towards the horizon and woodland tracks became gloomy.
The Hares for “a load of rubbish”
Action Man for wildlife abuse - swallowing bees
JGG & No Entry for inuendo: “I can get down but I can’t get up again” and something about horizontal jogging
Petal Ever Ready being helpful … sniff of the hare … fragrance we wouldn’t buy
Flash & Fun Size for hand bags - which they denied carrying on the run
Dirty Rascal health and safety nightmare
And so on-inn to The Star to enjoy a drink and write some comments:
Action Man VERY FLAT NAUTICALLY, ACCORDING TO SHRINKY DINK!
Dodo GOOD SHORT RUN - EXCELLENT AFTER 3 MONTHS! [away in Spain]
Old Thumper Lovely recovery meander [from a half marathon in the morning] - good blackberries.
Hash Hobbit Ever Ready trod on my toes! Bastard. And Yorkie kicked me in the bollocks (if I had any I don’t now)
Dirty Rascal Bit dark in the forest! Good run!
