RLC Harriers Run 835, 14 October 2014 
Hares : Derek Wong & Kit Kath
Runsite : Setia Eco Park
Weather : Rain during the run but a dry circle

This month's flavour is Setia Eco Park. Playboy Choo and Ann had their
run there, Derek & Kit Kath today and this Saturday, Walking Tall with
his friendship 'terima kasek' run

It was ever threatening as we drove from KL to the run site. We
thought we were leaving dark and cloudy KL for a sunny Shah Alam.
Alas, the moment we arrived in good time, it started to drizzle ... 

At exactly 6, GM Col Johan pressed his roti-man horn and passed the
horn to JM Tommy Chin. We ran up to the bottom of a small hill and
meandered all over the place, going up and down, doing an F1 trail,
criss-crossing all over the place, negotiating hairpin bends until
finally we came to the mother of all hills ... a straight-up hill of
some 700 to 800 metre with gradient ranging from 20 to 65 degrees. It
was a long long long climb up.

After that it was downhill ... fantastic except that by this time, it
was getting dark. Luckily, Playboy Choo and Ann came along with a
torchlight and I gratefully tagged along. We struggled in the dark
with Ann's torchlight flickering on and off (Playboy, please buy her a
new torchlight) Finally we arrived home

Then we found out that the FROP were Mike Kuan, Wendy Lum and Simon
Tee (guest motherhasher) at 72.5 minutes. I got in at 7.48pm and
promptly had my shower and awaited the arrival of the backbenchers
(icluding Guru, Yabayabadoo, Dr Yap, Uncle Teh and Margaret and
surprise of surprises, Tarzan) who came back at 8.40 
when the circle was just starting. Peter Leong's guest, Carol was treated to a
chest-expanding exercise to the accompanying song "We must, we must
increase our bust, the bigger the better, the men depend on us" The
charges went to and fro and did not end until about 9.50. 

On-on-on was at the same tian-tian-how-tian (every day good day)
restaurant with some fantastic food washed down with a 12-year-old
single malt (GlenFiddich)
