All- We are accepting coat and jacket donations every Saturday at Dogpile  until the end of the year.  If you have any that you can spare, we will make sure they get to a person in need this winter.  If someone is willing to collect at GridIron I will meet them and get them as well.  Any coat is acceptable, mens, women’s or kids.  Lets help keep RVA warm this winter.  Thanks for those who have donated and thanks in advance for those planning too!

For all of those who are interested and available to go with me, I am planning a trip to Wilmington, NC to assist in hurricane Florence recovery and donate time and goods for the weekend of 10/26-10/28.  Here is the basic plan: Friday 10/26: Load up the trucks and leave Hampton Roads after work (approx. 6pm). Drive to my in-laws’ house in Angier, NC (arrive approx. 9:30pm).  They have plenty of room for anyone that wants to come (they can comfortably house about 15 visitors).  We will spend the night there. Saturday 10/27: Get up early on Saturday morning to…

Hope to see a large total attendance tomorrow morning with the nice, cool, crisp weather. Kubota

For a number of years the Healing Place, a residential program for men in recovery from addiction, has had a training team for the Monument Avenue 10k. This year they are trying a team for the 8k race that is attached to the Richmond Marathon. They started on Saturday, but only six of the twelve residents who had signed up showed up. Yesterday I went to their all-hands-on-deck community meeting to try to recruit a few new men and remind the others about accountability. I told them to let me know if there was anything holding them back and we…

All – here is the planned route for tomorrow’s RAMM run.  (scroll down for those who like turn by turn directions) https://www.mapmyrun.com/routes/copy/2258923801/ It is a driver (sort of) in honor of the start of the Ryder Cup  that starts at 2:00 a.m. Eastern Friday morning.  Swirly should be up in time for the first tee shot.  Maybe he will broadcast coverage from Big Blue pre-run. Extra points for anyone in USA Colors and/or Golf Attire for the run.  See you in the morning! The attached route is for the 6-milers. 5-milers (actually 5.37 so gotta bust it) – same route just…
