Seoul Flyers is the running group that Mike & I belong to here in Seoul. They are a pretty large group of over 500 people (~ 50-100 active) that run for fun, run competitively, run for the social scene or run for sanity (I am in this group). The folks are completely diverse from native Korean, Australian, South African, British, Irish, Americans, Canadians, men, women, young, old, mothers, single. And since most runners are good-hearted, solid people...it makes for a good group.
Thanks to the help of the folks providing some of the not-available-inrgedients from the US Army Base, I was able to make some good ole lasagna. (ricotta cheese cannot be found in Korea and mozzarella is price-prohibitive). Wow...runners really know how to make up a pot-luck though because our house was full of goodies like dark chocolate & bacon cupcakes, 7 layer mexican dip, corn bread with honey butter and loads of great things.
It was really a great time and we are happy to have such a great group of friends here in Seoul.
Really, I am just taking notes so that I have all of the necessary ingredients to start my own running group back in Michigan!
