I went to my first hash!

Now, it's not what you think. My friend K has been asking me to go on a hash for the past year and I finally said 'yes', since it was taking place close to home.
The group here is called the Calgary Hash House Harriers and has been around for quite a while. The hate sets the trail earlier in the evening, and then the runners go and try to follow it.
Last night, K and I were lucky as we didn't get too far off trail.
As a hash 'virgin', I got to stand in front of the group afterwards while they serenaded the other virgin & myself. We then had to chug a beer- yum! I think I may be able to handle this running group :)

Catching up

The month of October flew by. It was the beginning of soccer season and even with only one child playing the sport it overtakes the family's life. Practice, games, team technical training=busy!
Throw in team manager (me?!) duties
and personality clashes between me & the coaches and it's a royal mess.
Trying to stay sane, keep myself on plan and healthy.
Speaking of staying healthy. We all just got our flu shots. The kids & dh went for the nasal spray. I went for the traditional shot. Here's to staying healthy.
