10 studs showed up on the day after a snow day to run.  Hill repeats were the call by the Q, but not Splinter type hill repeats.  The repeat was a 1 mile out and back from the lake to three chopt.  You can figure out the math on how many each of us did. NMM Pucker was flying today.  He lost six pounds in the last 15 days. The loop wasn’t quite 1 mile, so I owe you guys a couple of tenth’s, depending how far you ran. Swirly kept the 6’s in sight for most of the run.…

Sleeper notified seven of F3RVA’s armchair quarterbacks to rise from the fartsack to pay penance to the Fantasy Gods in remembrance of F3RVA’s Fantasy Football season 2.  Seven more joined in on the fun. THANG COP (In honor of the Playoff Teams) Spit (7-6) – Burpees x 7 OYO EFH (9-4) – Imperial Walkers x 9 Viral (9-4) – Snow Angels x 9 Opus (10-3) – Smurf Jacks x 10 Loose Goose (12-1) – HRMs x 12 Beatdown of the Year: Loose Goose over DK week 9 by 103 points – 103 LBCs OYO The Good:  Loose Goose 12-1 (14-1)…

In the sub-zero gloom, 15 headband heroes assembled to face the sure hardships of Heartbreak Ridge. Already sweaty from many track laps, HANDSHAKE was first to greet YHC in the gloom. The ShovelFlag was planted and the PAX assembled. In loving support of YHC’s alma mater, GUMBO not only sported a skin tight headband, but also skin-tight red&yellow “Gym Dike” from his VMI Glory Days – bringing warmth to YHC’s heart and general amusement among the PAX. Coming up on the 0530 start, YHC reminded the PAX of our F3 Credo – “Leave no man behind, but leave no man…

1 Davillians decided to trek out on this snow covered morning to keep preparing for GrowRuck YHC got in about 2 miles at around 17 minute mile pace Nice cool morning with only your thoughts and God by your side SPIT ON THAT!!

Lonely, dark, and slippery  @ Batteau this morning. Run to the AO – Run around the AO – Run back home. Scrape the ice of the cars = Boom ! Got word that Vinny would not be there last night – figured Sippy might not be there because the bridge is closed – Bleeder might still be in Wintergreen – so when 5:30 hit and nobody else was there I was not surprised or deterred because you only need 5 letters to define the word commitment – ALL IN ! (Swirly’s Board) See y’all in the gloom..

Two strong shuffled into the river run winter wonderland, a stark contrast to YHC abode or Bullseye’s retreat 2 miles east. The mosey goes something like this… Carefully mosey onto James River Rd, Right on Riverton Ridge, Left on Welby, Right on Sherfield, Left on Ashwell around the big loop, right on Edmonton and back to base. Bullseye led the way and continually reminded YHC that running on the white stuff is a lot safer than trying to run anywhere else.  It was nice to find out the Bullseye and YHC have quite a few mutual friends, I guess that…

YHC arrived on the frozen tundra AO to find no one.  While walking down the road, he heard the sound of Saab’s Land Rover round the bend, but alas, it was only a snow plow dropping salt. Handshake shows and then BT and off we go on the prime winter wonderland. COP on the upper blacktop Don Quixote Russian Soldiers SSH Leg Lifts – right over left Leg Lifts – left over right Scrum, Dr Tryhard, and Escobar come in hot and join us. Ascending, Incremental 4 Corners – on the upper black top Run to corner 1 and 10…

A K9 and her frisbee tosser embraced the freezing rain for a Sunday morning jaunt. The Thang: Mosey to the access road for some full-tail-wag off-leash action, cross at Belle Isle, return through Oregon Hill. NMM: Boulevard was closed before the Pumphouse parking lot, so U-turn and park in the Dogpile parking lot.  Since Nickel Bridge was closed, there were no cars and YHC could cross without losing her you-know-what.  YHC is sure Offshore loved the 2 inches of slush.  The PAX saw two sets of boot tracks and a set of bike tracks.  F3 PAX?  We would never find…
