Moonlight run with LtD Caribbean Sailing School

What do you do on a Super Full Moon when you are not running a Caribbean sailing school?

Well, you grab your headlamp, throw on your running shoes (if you have them) and hitch a ride to the latest Hash House Harriers event. Hmmm….what’s that got to do with a Caribbean sailing school? Staying fit is always important – especially on sailboats! And if you can have fun at the same time, even better! We heard about “hashing” while talking to some cruisers at the marina. Curious? You see, there is this group of drinkers with a running problem and they started a “support” group in Grenada – Grenada Hash House Harriers. Basically, this group goes out running (or walking) on a different trail every Saturday. The trick is that there is no real trail, they just make it up that day!  We’re in! Chris even went in flip-flops – BONUS! It was a beautiful night during the Super Full moon! We started out under a gigantic mango tree just as the moon started peeking through the branches.

Here’s how it went:

There are usually over 200 participants at the Grenada Hash House Harrier events. Everyone had a great time dancing in the moonlight feeling warm and right! Why don’t you come with us on Saturday? Oh, and be sure to wear new shoes. It’s an extra special HONOR for anyone who wears new shoes!!! ON ON!
