Thanks to some expert googlemok we've found an actual running club without a drinking problem(!). They're called YiQiPao - "Together Run". Today we ran at a leisurely 10km/h with a group of 30 along the path of next weekend's Nike 10k. The pace still had me sweating buckets - not sure when my body is going to adjust to running in 28°c.
Afterwards we ate one of our top 5 meals so-far in the middle of nowhere and tried out speaking some chinese. The response was unexpected - people could actually tell what I was saying! We rolled home happily exhausted, completely stuffed and only 22RMB lighter.
