23 canvassed the City of Richmond on foot and wheel for a classic Lockjaw Haiku route: Run to U of R Traverse only two fingers No Jelly Needed

25 Strong showed no concern for the Ides of March and decided to Run, Ruck, and Bike in the gloom. The Carillon route was called and off we went. The ruckers enjoyed carrying a small body bag through the streets attracting various looks from the early morning crowd. Congratulations goes to Bootleg who completed an Ultra this past weekend with snow no less. Well done sir! It was great to hear the details of your adventure. Announcements: The GrowRuck team is looking for volunteer shadows to assist for a few hours throughout the event. See Shakedown or Honey Do if…

22 ruckers, runners and bikers posted on a lovely Friday Morning. The Thang and NMM The ruckers launched at 5:15 and headed to hillcrest and other unknown parts and back to MM Runner headed west on Grove, left on Oak, Left on Cary and right on Hillcrest. Then the runners did as many loops as they could in the allotted time. Then back the same way we came. Biker (pullout) headed out on his own for a jaunt downtown. Hillcrest is dark. I knew this already, but you really get the full affect when there are a bunch of runners…

Spring weather before a wintry mix. Yep, its Richmond. Twenty of RVA’s finest came out to cover miles in this fine city. The Route West on Grove and turn right on the access road in front of the churches. Take a right on St Christophers and a right on Patterson heading east. 4s turn on Westmoreland, 5s on Malvern, and 6s on Nansemond with all taking Grove back to the VSF. Marv took us out. The Moleskin Despite the warm weather, you gotta keep those digits warm. Most of the pre-run chatter was TYA (of all people) commenting on Saab’s…

A solid nineteen came out to taste some early spring weather before winter encloses again. The RoutesNorth on Westmoreland and take a right on Monument. 4s turn on the Boulevard, 5s turn on Allison and then over to Shields, and 6s turn on Harrison. All routes take their respective roads back to Grove and return to the VSF. The Moleskin TYA was on fire pre-run this morning. Jokes, comebacks, one-liners – all were a part of his warm up this morning. Nothing got past him. Post workout chatter has to go to Labrat and Offshore. One has stories of mice…

21 pax and evidently a pair of ghost bikers met the day with ferocity this morning.  Serpentine route maps were handed out and met with groans….but in the end most seemed to like the route.  Shakedown even sent me a pic of the route on a map because he said it looked cool! Nobody got lost, but Singer joked that he got lost because he was looking for Antrim with a “u”…obviously my prowess as as cool looking route designer is not matched by spelling skills!  So much for laminating these maps! Back to the drawing board… No ice or…

20 running RAMM veterans and 3 RAMM Gear guys arrived for some ambulatory activity. THE THANG The old Grove Ave tour 4 milers turn at 195, 5 Milers turn at Roseneath, 6 milers turn at Boulevard to Three Chopt and Back to the Flag. Moleskin As YHC crossed Cary this morning, Big Blue was already preached in the standard location surveying the AO. Swirly gave me the birthday greeting as YHC climbed into the truck. Vinny was not far behind acknowledging the tripping of another decade. With the good fortune of another injury, YHC was able to see everyone while…

Twenty-Seven Runners, including two Swirlys, and a canine covered various distances this morning by foot, pedal, or paw.  Here is what transpired, more or less. The Route East on Grove to Thompson and turn left and then a right on Hanover.  6s do a lap around the Mumford block first before beginning down Grove.  4s take a right on Shield, 5s on Plum, and 6s on Linden with all returning on Grove. The Moleskin Great turn out today for excellent running weather to jump start those New Year’s resolutions.  This also provides a great opportunity to EH runners into our…

The rain held off just enough for 23 Weather Men and 1 Canine to pound the pavement and start the Christmas Season weekend off with a stellar beginning. Usually the Q initiates go time at 0530 but the PAX was eager to move so off the PAX went at 05:29:40 secs. Prior to the early start, YHC awaited the question from the PAX as to “Who has the Q?” or “Where are we running?” But Saab looks at YHC, “Well, Flatline are we to guess?”  The Route=out and back: Commonwealth to Monument. Monument to Shephard and back=4 miles. Monument to…

Fourteen road warriors (and lots of us believe there were bikers, but no sign of them at the end) pulled on their running galoshes and hit the mostly ice-free streets for a Friday morning Run At Mary Munford.  Chit-chat at the water cooler suggests this might be what happened: Routes: East on Grove… …4 milers, right on Shields. …5 milers, right on Vine. …6 milers, right on Park, then right on Laurel. …all runners, right on Floyd, then right on Nansemond, and left on Grove.  Straight on ’til dawn. Number-a-ma, Name-a-rama, MARV took us out (sponsored by the VCU Sports…
