Always 70 and Sunny

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…

34 warriors rose to greet the dawn of a new day.  The expedition was to take the direct and difficult path to the shining city on the hill.  Our journey would leave comfort behind and face our challenges in the Valley of Doubt.  Many questions were asked before our departure concerning safety, weather and the unknown.  The most important question asked was what will it take to complete our journey? The most important and honest answer; all it takes is all you got. According to legend, it went a little something like this. COP:  Mosey to far circle. SSH X 40…

11 Warriors arrived at the village of Motunui to take part in a birthday tradition. The SF was planted, a visitor was welcome, and the buttercups got to work This how it went down. Traditional mosey around the church. Then circle up. YHC explained the theme today would be Moana.

15 Cold Steel F3 Rangers arrived at Mary to finish the first full week of 19 off in style…..including one fine canine friend, Sally. YHC tried to come up with a creative route on Thursday but all YHC could think about was Army ROTC and the KISS method-Keep It Simple Stupid. So keeping with my ROTC education, route explained. Down Grove and R on Boulevard. 4 milers run to Christopher Columbus, circle, and back. 5 milers, run to Carillon and back. 6 milers run to Carillon and one loop around Fountain Lake with a lap around the block at Mary….YHC…

20 warriors rose to greet the dawn of a new day.  If there was ever a time for a proper barn dance to celebrate all that is glorious in our fair commonwealth, then today is that day.  According to the rave reviews on the blog Square Dancing History, it went a little something like this. COP IC X 20:  SSH, CP, WWII, FC, IW.  IC X 10: HRM, HRM LL, HRM RL. Arm circle X 1 RIPFD Mosey to tennis courts Bear Crawl Suicide:  Line up facing the empty four courts.  Bear crawl to the first court midline and run backwards…
