The Born in October Run

They say that the best people were never born at all, but then October happened. Not by accident but by decree. The first Roman emperor like his adopted father said, “I came, I saw, I conquered”, therefore we should have a month for me. Hence giving birth to Libras like me.

If you ever wondered how a name like VVV came to be; it had nothing to do with mothering, conquering or m.b.g. For poetry was envisioned that could bring happiness to thy. And this roman name came from a Spanish/Mexican poet called Octavio Paz who inspired mommy to give birth to me. Her eyes would light up every time something witty was uttered with glee.

But make no mistake, there have been many great Librans. Take James Carter, the president of the USA who knew that he was too smart for their own good (He was Obama before Obama—caring and wise). There was Mahatma Gandhi…need I say more?There is also Eminem, another great American poet. But not as smooth and suave as the DOG—AKA—Snoop Dog. And who can forget Carrie Fisher from Return of the Jedi as she smacked the slug?

Nobody cares about Margaret Thatcher & David Cameron, not even the Queen. Neil de Grasse Tyson has educated us over the years satirically on science—and NO, the Earth is not flat. Then there is Frederick Nietzsche who spread his optimism in academia, sincerely. And we cannot forget about Bruno Mars and the handsome Wolverine. Unfortunately, we can never forgive Hilary for burning Bernie that resulted in (let’s not ruin the moment here).

So, come out to this Sunday’s Hash as the last day of Libra dawns upon 22ndof October that leads us to the Scorpion.

On On, VVV!

On this run you will find solace in the greenery of the parks where tai chi is practiced daily. Who knows you might even meet romance along the way. Like Confucius said, “It’s good to meet girl in park, but better to park meat in girl.”

The Martha Stewart Run

It’s time to whip up a delicious run in the infamous Songjiang. That’s right, today in history Ms. Martha Stewart was sentenced to prison for lying to the FBI. Nevermind that our current president has admittedly lied to the former head of the FBI without repercussion, this little Suzy Homemaker did real hard time.

I wonder if they gave her a job in the kitchen, cooking up dope with a crock pot. We won’t be stopping for any pies on the way, but be prepared for sub par beers and a run through Sheshan. With Baby Sperm and some dude named Luis at the helm, this should be a run that doesn’t disappoint.

In other news, then Cock in Chief, W.J. Clinton was voted on, or rather the name of the thing of this year that carries the same name as his ‘brother,’ was voted to be moved forward with impeachment proceedings by the House. Justice must have been served or his wife was justified in her future lawlessness, because well….she got away with it 39 times. I’m sure there is a witty someone who can come up with how to ‘pull a Comey’ but it ain’t me babe, it ain’t me.

Run 1501 – The Tables are Turned

In my suburban American neighborhood, I couldn’t help but notice that on Christmas and Thanksgiving, the Jewish families ate at Chinese restaurants. There I was with my cozy family and familiar traditions, and for them, it was just another day.

Then I came to China, and now I’m watching all the Chinese people run off to their cozy families and familiar traditions, while the foreigners take advantage of a free travel week. Single tear.

If you are all alone this Sunday, while your transient friends are travelling around China without you, looking for their picture-perfect moments, then come and join the forgotten, the broke, and the wandering for a Sunday Hash Bash. We can give you the warm familiarity of a Chinese restaurant and the rustic surroundings of an empty parking lot and a case of ice cold beer.

This will be a great, short, and quick-paced run that will imbue your days to come with the reverie of our shenanigans.

Run 1500 – Free Beer for all the Virgins

Sing it loud, sing it proud! Sing it ’till you hit the ground. The Shanghai Hash turns 1500 runs old this week. That’s 28 years and 44 weeks of virtuoso bellowing. We’ve been in the news. Our ranks have whetted the floors of Chinese drunk tanks and the appetites of countless 上海人. But not to sound like a bunch of downers, it will be the most inspirational, fantastic, and unforgettable Hash event since 1986 when the Shanghai Hash had its first run. And for those who were there for it know it was unforgettable, and this run shall be like your first time again—but for some it just might be another forgotten moment after many beer-stops and endless participation in the CIRCLE, and wake up and say: “Oh my F^N$@n God what did I do yesterday!” as you climb out of a strange bed to make it to work. So, join us for the energy, entertainment, and camaraderie that the Shanghai Hash has always delivered.

The Oktoberfest Hash

Beer, for hashers, is like medicine for normal people, in that it cures injuries and diseases. This beautiful drink has its roots in many countries, and no country but Germany is linked so closely to the greatness determined by the “Reinheitsgebot”, the purity order of the hops, water and barley which can be traced back to 1516.

By that heritage, Munich is hosting today’s largest beer festival, the Oktoberfest, which is the anniversary celebration of the wedding between Bavarian Crown Prince Ludwig and his wife, Princess Therese of Saxony. This year’s Oktoberfest is open this weekend, Sep. 16, and lasts until Oct. 3rd. 7 Million liters of beer will be served, all of which was brewed within the city limits of Munich. In this spirit we will run through the green fields and along rivers in the outskirts of Shanghai to celebrate our SH3 beer fest with ice cold Tsingtao!

The Hunger Games Hash

Everyone has a little Katniss in them. I, for one, would love to cut my own hair perfectly with a rusty knife after three days of bloody carnage (so I get where she’s coming from). I’m willing to give that a try in Shanghai’s very own Restless Village, a restaurant with more Dark Ages weaponry just laying around than my dream home.

Speaking of target practice, we finally have something fun to do with our mountains of empty Tsingtao bottles (don’t worry, we won’t bring them empty!). Come enjoy some martial culture this Sunday.

The Bluebird Run

Hashers Hashers

When you hear the number 300, what comes to mind?

The need for speed!

On this day 80 years ago September 1935, Sir Malcolm Campbell had achieved a milestone in driving, he set a new record for speed on land, in his 2,500-hp motor car Bluebird. Over two laps on a one-mile course, the car averaged a speed of 301.129 miles per hour, shattering a record set earlier that year.

September 3rd, 1935 Sir Malcolm Campbell took his beloved Blue Bird out to the Bonneville Salt Flats where he drove it straight into the record books. The car that featured the 36.7L supercharged Rolls Royce airplane engine producing 2300+ horsepower managed to reach the elusive 300mph mark. With a land speed record you use two runs, and the combined average of those runs is what becomes the record. Campbell’s two run average was 301.337mph. All thanks to a massive blue car with a catchy name and monster airplane engine under the hood.

In his honor, were going to run like were breaking a running record—but most likely 300 down downs is all we can realistically achieve on such short notice.

To celebrate Banana Lovers Day, grab a bunch of bananas, and come join the Shanghai H3. Fiber, potassium, and carbs galore.

Wear yellow and come enjoy a cool run in hot Shanghai. OnOn!
