I started hashing last week with the Seoul PMS Hash House Harriettes, a women only group, and really enjoyed it. We walked the trail, which was perfect since I haven't run in 4 months (with the weather being so cold) and come from a country (Texas, I mean) that doesn't have crazy hills like Korea.
This week I went with the Yongsan Kimchi H3 group, which had a good walking trail and fun afterparty. They sang a bunch of super bawdy songs, so I shared a few of my Amtgard ones and will have to remember more for next time.
I'm not really feeling the evening bar group, though. Everyone calls me "oh, a baby" because I'm the youngest person in the room by 3 years. That's a little cute the first or second time, less much the fifth and so on. Also, there are a lot of loud personalities and really annoying drunks, which wouldn't be so bad if they'd just leave me be since I fall into neither category. I have more fun watching and listening than being dragged into conversation just because I'm new.
Hash House Harriers are "a drinking club with a running problem" that meets on the weekends, and there are innumerable chapters throughout the world. A few members go ahead to mark a trail with chalk, and everyone else follows later to end at someone's apartment or a bar for drinks.
I'm desperately looking for reasons not to hate Korea, and I think hashing can be a big one. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I can comfortably integrate with one or more groups and stick with this. With most of the members being much older than me, they remind me a bit of my Amtgard friends, and I hope I can find a similar connection here.
