The Boilers’ run aka “The hallelujah no shiggy run”
As our taxi was going past the German Swiss For The Rich school, we saw our lovely hare Rearender in a lovely posh English summer hat and a bunch of western guilo and guipo changing at the side of the street. “It mush be here!” said Crash Test Dummy.
Rearender in her lovely hat was busy piling boxes of beer and bags of ice, arranging the drinks and socializing with hashers and suddenly, a voice asked, “So where is your husband? Why are you doing these all alone?”
“Oh he is trying to book the bash restaurant.” said the hare with a smile. Another voice jumped in, “Haaa can’t he just call and book?”
“He wants to make sure the restaurant is not closed!” the hare still in her lovely hat said with faith in her eyes.
Many different voices together went, “This is only his excuse to make you do all the work here. You are too gullible ……..”
Before the hashers finished, the phone rang and we heard the girl in the hat saying, “Darling, please come back, I need you here.”
And he did come back, as we were ready to depart, to brief us about the run. It’s a A to A, short easy breezy run. The path up is slippery, watch out but no shiggy, just concrete………. No shiggy! Hallelujah! The last thing I want is to twist my ankle in the bush before my epic trip in the Canadian Rockies……. Hallelujah…….!!! I was humming Hallelujah Hallelujah in my head but Nia was going “Shit, no shiggy? I prefer the adventure of having branches or grass surrounding me and not seeing where I was going!!!”
Not to worry Nia, you’ll get that in the next run ;)
So twenty or so hashers ran up Guildford Road, turned left and found the steps at a quiet corner of the gas station. Up and up, we were near the Peak we knew and “Ouuch!” somebody almost fell on the path. It was slippery and Boiler was no liar!
And then……… wait a sec. There’s a run report which describes exactly the same route we did. Why? Boiler simply printed out a used route off his computer and recycled it.
