That Julie Andrews Moment

There are so many magic moments in my running stories that I sometimes share with you Dear Readers but today was yet another that was just wonderful.

About 12 of us grouped up in High Elms and went off for a run full of conversation, banter and laughs as we entered a very hilly and reasonably paced run. Ever so often things would go quiet as we negotiated a longer ascent to settle down for some more talk. We were about 8 miles in and I shouted to my pal, Brian 

" 'Ere Brian once I saw a deer up here"
"A female deer?"

and then the group broke into that great Sound of Music song

DOE, A DEER A FEMALE DEER
RAY, A DROP OF GOLDEN SUN
ME, A NAME I CALL MYSELF
FAR, A LONG LONG WAY TO RUN
SEW, A NEEDLE PULLING THREAD
LA, A NOTE TO FOLLOW SEW
TEA, A DRINK WITH JAM AND BREAD
THAT WILL BRING US BACK TO DO... oh oh oh

and as quick as it started, it ended all of us with big grins on our faces  some still humming it further down the trail. Silly but fun :-D
