Sadist and Sinex 'Easy Like Sunday Morning' HASH stroll
Rolling up casually late, it was good to see a strong turn out in the carpark for this early start.
The crowd was relaxed, sitting around reading bits of 'Roadrunners' Sunday papers, or patting dogs.
Noone really cared that there was no 'Religious Advisor'. It was all quite fun already in the sunshine.
Then 'Perpetual Motion' adopted all too readily his 'Sargent Major' persona and whipped us into shape.
Interesting to see this run was attended by a host of (almost 10) one -time athletic runners, even without those training for the 'Marathon'.
We stumbled off on the sodden trail through the still rural, yet suburban environs of 'Villeneuve Loubet'.
The trail followed several roads, circled many roundabouts, taking in quite a bit of 'up', and even one or two checks.
Despite the fierce storms the night before, there seemed to be more flour than normal.
There was a fair bit of hanging around done at checks. It took a while for any one of us to stroll off to have a half -hearted look for the trail.
Otherwise, there was more important business to be done. We all had to catch up with the gossip.
Running the trail seemed secondary so early on this Sunday.
Most exercise was done actually wagging the chin at the 'beer stop'. Here the crisps were great. But I was too busy talking to read what flavour they were.
Something like 'beef and cardboard'.
After about 10 packets of crisps, we sped off again, with 'Cumalot' as our 'front running bastard'. That's how fast!
There were some pleasant views of 'Villeneuve Chateau' and the 'Haut Cagnes Chateau' and the sweet sound of barking dogs all along the route, which meant we had to talk much louder.
At one point, a very cordial local resident even had to interrupt our chatting, by calling and waving from her balcony, to indicate where the trail actually went.
Here one or two of us stopped in wonderment at the sight of a beautiful Japanese tree, (see picture) which was so significant, that 'Sadist' had to point it out to us, since we were talking and nearly walked (sorry, ran) straight past it.
This is the reason the 'Walkers' finally caught us up. We were busy discussing the tree of course. I still don't know were they suddenly all came from, but they were on us, at some point even in front of us! 'Roadrunner' had seen them coming and managed to get running before being caught out.
He was seen steaming up the hill, out of sight, with Anne strolling along beside him.
But now I know he was just running to grab the best place on the park bench back at the car park.
Relieved to arrive at the 'Circle', it was all made worthwhile when 'Piedo' opened the bar, put on the music and started serving his special 'gin and tonics'.
I swear he mixes the best on the 'Riviera' Worth running a HASH for!
Our replacement 'Religious Advisor' did a truly admirable job, swiftly administering the 'down down's and fabricating various crimes to all and sundry (see below).
Nevermind if just this once there was a little less pace than normal. It was great to see everyone and catch up. 'On On' until the next time!! 'No Satisfaction'
