Long Run Sunday, November 15th/09

So here we are again, getting closer to the weekend. Sunday is acomin'! We are planning to mix things up this weekend again and we will be joining some friends at a Hash run. One of our running friends has a birthday this weekend, G.E., and is also hosting this Hash run so we feel it is only fitting that we join in to help her celebrate. As we watch weather this week to see if we are possibly biking or running to the location, we will post where we plan to meet on our way. If you have never Hashed before, it is an experience. They describe themselves as "a drinking club with a running problem". On the only one time I have had the opportunity to attend a Hash, I discovered they were not exaggerating, and had a fantastic time.

The neat thing about the Hash is how it involves everyone. It does not matter if you are a slow runner or a fast runner, everyone is included. The most interesting thing about the experience we had was how this run parallels' a game played by the tribe in "our favorite book" Born to Run. Those who are fast take their positions in front and those who are slow have time to catch up as trails are being found. Then there are the drinking games after, during, during.......and after?!

There will be more to write about this topic later, keep posted for more info on the how we will get there.
