Hares: Roaring Nancy and Dastardly Where: Pizza Bob’s, Calgary, AB RA: On-In. Attendance: 16
For those who missed yesterday’s run, please note that this pair of hares will *never set trail together again* (best shouted in RoaaRrring Naaancy’s inimitable voice). We’re not sure what caused the discord as trail was quite wonderful: a mix of street and trail running interspersed with idyllic forest-like segments (see for yourself):
One complaint: the name of the run over-promised and under-delivered on the sex (and the polar vortex). Temperatures (see above) were almost mild in fact. It was even mild enough for people to disrobe, which may have upped the sex appeal, but alas, no one did.
Hares gave us many PG’s to play at and the Universe gave Insane Bolt and Hump the Shark an extra toy, which they both rode long and hard.
We ran near the Tom Baker Cancer Centre and had a thought for our fellow Hasher Lay’em In Snow who – we hear – is not doing too well these days. Let’s send him some love. We miss you, buddy. ❤️
Hares: Hump the Shark (and Dastardly) Where: Stonewall Pub, Calgary AB What: Wear your best Scottish getup RA: On In Attendance: 19
In honor of Scotland’s most famous bard, the hash organizes a special trail on (or close to) his birthday on a yearly basis. This year, Hump the Shark (the least Scottish hasher?) volunteered for the job. On-In (the Scottishest hasher) was RA and beguiled us with his own rendition(s) of Rabbie Burns poetry. Even after seeing the printed words, I’m not sure it is any more comprehensible.
Trail was true to Hump’s style: on the longer side at around 8.5km. Feel the Burns! Over achiever “Insane Bolt” is rumoured to have run even more than the hare covered as he set it, with check backs and all (11.5km).
Only a handful of hashers dressed the part, with kilt-clad Hardly being the most Scottish-looking (despite his strong Teutonic roots). Some (including myself, in the name of the “auld alliance“) wore some tartan accessories.
