Start: Middle of Columbus Circle
On-In: Bourbon St. 80th & Amsterdam
Hares: Splat & 4WD
Scribe: Doggie Erectus
We gathered in the middle of Columbus Circle until a cross hare fixed us with his stare and told us to move over there. So we did and had a chalk talk where we were promised ice cream on trail! Needless to say, we were off in a hurry to find such a nice treat. We did find it in Central Park. And then as the pack moved away, the clouds opened up and a rainbow appeared. It was like a message from God, more ice cream checks!
The ice cream didn’t slow us down as much as beer does, so we arrived at the On-In in no time. The JM’s wasted no time and convened the circle and gave out the down-downs:
The Hares: Splat & 4WD
Visitors & virgins
Donner Kebab & 4WD for accosting the wrong running group and corrupting them with offers of alcohol
Vibram 5-Finger wearers: 4 of them!
Rich for getting Paul lost
Paul for being too polite on trail
Dan & a Virgin for looking like time warp twins
Mr. & Mrs. Pussy in Boots for their honeymoon hash
Trips & Balls for complaining that it was like 5 minutes long, whatever "it" is
The On-In was great and the beer made a pleasant churning in my belly with all the ice cream.
