Ok, now that you know what it is, I will tell you that this “walk” was a run for which I was a hare. I used my new knowledge of the streets of Pittsburgh to make a trail that 15 of my friends followed to beer. It was great fun. So much fun that I don’t have many pictures of it and most of the ones I do have, I won’t share on the web. Not that they are bad or inappropriate, I just don’t have consent from the people in them to share. So I will share a few…
My friend Rachel (she walked with me in November) was my cohare and the first order of business was actually laying the trail. We grabbed our bags of flour and set off from Mount Washington towards South Side. We saw many Pittsburgh Protractors!
We also saw this handwritten note which we could not decipher. I still think about it weeks later. Is the dog hanging from a chain or is the chain hanging where the dog was found?
Our first beer stop was at Jack’s Rose Lounge and it was a perfect spot for our group.
Rachel and I separated at Welsh Way so I could lay a False Trail up the steep hill. She got lost somehow. She’ll be the first to tell you that she is bad with maps and directions. I now understand that.
Our second beer stop was off of Paur Street right above the Wabash Transit tunnel landslide.
Crews were working on it day and night.
After this we headed back to Shiloh Grill for dinner and songs! It was a lot of fun and I highly recommend it to those of you who have a sense of humor as well as a love for running and beer.
