Some of you have heard me mention the ‘drinking club with a running problem’ that we sometimes run with over here. The concept started with some expats working overseas who found themselves drinking too much beer and not exercizing enough so they formed a running club. Basically, a chosen member of the club goes out before the run and sets the trail by putting paper markers through the jungle, or where ever the run is that day. Then the rest of the group comes and follows the trail, usually getting lost several times. The runs are not that easy, they usually go over very rough terrain and take over an hour to complete. It is a good way to stay in shape and also to meet people when working overseas.
The name ‘Hash House Harriers’ comes from the pub where the concept first started I guess, but it has nothing to do with what most Americans think of when they hear the word ‘hash’. This refers to some sort of English food I think.
Anyway, here are some photos from a run and the socializing afterwards.
