Only two cans of 4.5 percent?  Lightweights.

I admit I love the image of these zoftig middle aged people running past tables and grabbing a dixie cup full of beer.

A walking team, perhaps. If it was downhill.

On personal mobility scooters with their own beer taps and heads up porn displays. Maybe then.

I knew it would be the hash. A drinking club with a running problem.

I am runner and would join the team. I'm not very fast, but I make up for it by being really slow.

we truly need a fark hash.  This december.  Check in with the Frederick MD hash.  Ask for Gnome.

Also, have any other FARK hashers gotten any media questions about beer as a post run recovery beverage?  We got a few, and it can't just be us.

ONON!

I never thought about it,  but I think the only difference between a Hasher and a Farker is the running. ;)  There are probably several of us Hashers here, or many potential hashers waiting in the wings.

Consider the piano player who, after many years of practice, has his motor cortex taken over by his hands. The "creep" of the part that controls fingers into neighbouring areas of the motor cortex makes fine control difficult. Sometimes both fingers try and encroach on the same area, making them influence each other. This reduces the digit dexterity and thus the quality of play.

Now consider that alcohol is a banned performance enhancer. Just like those poor, lost piano players the Fark team would be so well prepared for running that their body would be physically incapable of the required control. What many people would consider to be mad drunken rambling and retarded spastic movement would actually be the body getting mixed signals due to over preparation. Those poor, lost souls. They worked so hard, only to be beaten by their own preparation. Let us have a moment of silence for these great athletes, they who wanted to give a full 100% yet barely manage to cross the starting line.

I only run when I'm being chased.

I used to know an entire rugby team like that. I had to wipe tears from my eyes at the memory. Those brave souls, drunk before the game and more drunker after. They gave all and it was seldom enough. But we always won the party.
