Craptastic, it's a bummer you live in Chicago, or you could come ride with our Category 6.5 Club in Seattle. Cycling and drinking, it's a livin'. All rides end at bars. Or festivals. Or somebody's garage, at least.

Running problem, eh?

Sounds like they may need a 12-step program.

I was at the tenth SubGenius X-Day at Brushwood this year, as were the Hash House Harriers and let me tell you - they creeped me out.

Sounds like fun. There are enough cyclists around here that I should be able to find a few guys for a weekend bar tour.

Enuratique: Gee, could they be talking about hashing? It's actually good fun if you can keep up. And yes, there are a lot of people in wicked good shape.

i've heard about the hash groups, and have wanted to go, but have never actually gone.

I have seen lots of these idiots. "Hey, let's all get ultra sweaty and go make asses of ourselves at the local sports bar. We think we have such an awesome name." Please do yourselves all a favor and go run in traffic, preferably I95.

Aww come on Lucifer. Quit being such a poor sport and get that sand out of your vagina already.

I was going to join the Pittsburgh kennel, but i'm not much for beer... or running... But other than that it sounded like a lot of fun!!

drink it down down down down down

for those that want to know about their singing, check out www.immortalia.com

Be prepared to laugh hard and cringe with agony over the horrid singing

I have heard about the HHH before and have wanted to do it. I'm thinking I might go ahead and de-virginize myself this weekend. Does anyone know if it is strictly for joggers/runners or if there are walkers too? I want to bring my friend along, but he doesn't run.

/Yay.


Yeah, no kidding. There are hashes everywhere - even Antarctica (although not in Wyoming, which is pathetic.) It's not limited to Florida, it didn't start in Florida, and I'm not even sure it is especially popular there.

Woo! Bloomingfools HHH Represent!

Seriously, you should all find a chapter and join. It's all about beer and dumb inside jokes. Farkers would fit right in.

...well, except for the physical exertion....

Hashing started in India of all places by a trio of Brits. I believe they started it in the late 1800's too.
 
2007-08-14 02:44:55 AM  
Only 5 miles? Why do you need to hydrate at all before its over?

RDR San Diego - I'll never forget the looks of startled tourists when 500 drunk runners in red dresses stormed through Seaport Village. I've laughed about it for years...

This is a RR-type article. My XO and SUPPO ran this in the farkin' desert of Bahrain, back in ought-one. Sounded insane then; now it sounds like its become rather common.

I hashed when I was in Hong Kong, you have the maids come out on the Sunday runs trying to hook up with an expat. So you'll have a young, polite, trim, tiny non-Chinese Asian girl hooking up with a fat, old, loud, rude Englishman.

The runs were great, it would go from urban, up a mountain, down a mountain, back to urban, finish with some potato chips and a few beers, go for a Chinese or Indian food, drink a few more beers.

It was like the fight club for runners.

This is newsworthy? I could have sworn that 25 years ago, this happened every weekend on every college campus.

This is a dumb question, but I've been wondering-- doesn't beer contain enough fluid, and have a small enough ABV%, to keep you hydrated?

I mean, obviously alcohol dehydrates you, but many beers are only 5 or 6% ABV, wouldn't it contain enough water to balance it out, and keep you hydrated and alive and kicking for, like,...life?

This could be wishful thinking because I'm a burgeoning alcoholic, but I'd like to cling to my fantasy of thinking of beer as a sports drink.

I was part of Okinawa HHH great way to learn a new city... if you can remember it. full moon beer to beer anyone?

Well, if it was American beer, then there really is no difference if they were to drink water instead.

Late to the thread, folks.
What did I miss?

People drink and act crazy while doing an activity that is a hobby? GET OUT!!!!!! What's next; organized sports/social clubs in major cities where sports are played- softball, football, wiffleball, etc., as an excuse for drinking afterwards and hooking up?!!!!!

As soon as I saw "drinkers with a running problem" I knew it was yet another article from someone who just 'discovered' hashing.

I did some hashes with the Sin City HHH in Cincinnati about 7 years ago. The Chicago groups just don't work for me, they're either weekday evenings (not possible, I virtually never leave the office before 7) or somewhere I can't get to easily enough with public transit. Oh well, the ones I did in Cincy were fun though.

zemzellet: I think there's a club here in dallas....anyone know anything about it?

I've hashed in Dallas and have a few friends down there still. If you go, look up Mouthful and tell her [something witty] from Pull it Out and Proxy T1ts.

You'll have to go soon though...she'll be here in a couple weeks.

/Saw hash marks from the Monday night group on my way to work this morning

I sent this story to my friend, just as a suggestion for something for her to do now that she's back in Miami. Hell if she hasn't now talked me into giving it a try. This should be interesting.

/More of a drinker than a runner
//Wouldn't hurt to even that up, I suppose

actually the hash started in kuala lumpur in 1938 and has since spread to virtually every mid to large-sized city in the world. great way to see a place you travel to that you normally wouldn't get to experience and get pissed while you're at it.

i don't hash as much as i used to but i know i can drop in for a r*n most anywhere and have a lot in common with people i've never met before, find out chill things to do in town and probably get put up if i need a place to say. good folks most of em.

if anyone's in NYC on sep. 8th we're having our 10th annual red dress run, check out Link (new window) for the 411.

we put the run in drunk

Nothing wrong with being more of a drinker. Many hashers are, me included. Intensity varies by hash, but the saying here (Big Hump H3)has always been "run, jog, walk, stagger, or crawl." As long as you get from A to B under your own power, you're fine.

Plus, looking at your profile, I'm betting you'll be able to show up and do/say anything you damn well please without a bit of trouble. Maybe you should come to St. Louis instead?
