A Platoon of SOJ Roadrunners, 9 to be exact, posted to BWES to feel the warmth of RVA and get it all out! Route explained: Up Twin Team (but of course) to East Brigstock. 6 milers take E. Brigstock all the way to Winterfield (road does change to Netherfield for last 3/4 of mile) and back. 5 milers, E. Brigstock all the way till road name change, and back. 4 milers to bend in road, approx .5 miles, past Lake Patrick Henry, and back. Route did include traditional run by JRHS but that was not needed this morning. Mileage was…

SOJ celebrated our F3RVA Field Day 2019 Championship in style this morning. The route was the Tarrington Loop. Those finishing first, circle back UP Twin Team to meet up with the 6. The entire PAX arrived back to the VSF with 5 min left, so an audible was called to circle the school. With 2 min left, the PAX assembled for a brief COP: 20 SSH, 20 Imperial Walkers. COT – Gumbo took us out Naked Moleskin Respect to Bullseye, Gumbo and Rosie who arrived early for a pre-run 2+ miler. YHC had the honor of running with Bullseye, then…

9 men rolled in to BWES to start their work-week with some RiverRun miles. YHC grabbed the Q late last night and had a little something different planned today…a little ball on a chain. The “Chain” for today was the nearly 1-mile trek from BWES up Twin Team Hill (pause for groans…) and into Powderham. The “Ball” was a 1-mile loop around Drakewood, Glendower, Ellesmere, Drakewood. The challenge – complete the “Ball” as many times as you can and then return to the flag down the “Chain”. Rosie and Tobit completed 4 loops for 6+ miles. Well done men. Doozy,…

5 strong roll out for another fantastic sunny and 70 day Up the roller coaster in 23 minutes back in 22. As simple as that! Moleskin Bullseye was on fire today, disappeared out of sight on the way up the hill and caught YHC with a mile to go on the way back. Gumbo did as Gumbo does and powered through, Rosie effortlessly jogs by with easy chatter at the end of 5.19 and Doozy brought up the 6 with the support of Bullseye. Did I mention he was on fire! Strong running today men, YHC was out of gas…

10 strong for the Murph today…. Mossy to the main playground = 1mile 10 rounds of the below with each round consisting of the following exercises. • 10 pullups • 20 Merkins • 30 squats After we completed the 10 rounds we headed back to the parking lot = 1 mile COT, Name-a-rama, Number-rama Good work today and great to see new attendees to the Murph – total of 4 virgin murphers!

5 of the usual suspects arrived in the gloom with a little drizzle to find no one with a plan on where to go and only one Game of Thrones fan looking for someone to talk to. Bullseye suggested the Twin Team to Brigstock out 23 back 22 route and off we went. Mileage varied but all made it back on time, the Twin Team start and finish makes the negative split much easier than most. YHC can’t confirm but Orange Crush was so ready to discuss and disappointed no one watched Game of Thrones that I expect he gave…

5 River Run Regulars posted in the post-storm gloom to see what neighborhood or hill we would be conquering this morning, but YHC had a different kind of challenge in mind, it being Tax Day and all. Mosey down to the track to pay the piper. 4 laps around the track followed by the 15-burpee tax. Repeato as many times as you can until 0605, then we moseyed back to the SF via the extended route and paid one last marginal tax – 5 burpees. COT, Number-Rama, Name-a-Rama and YHC took us out. Announcements: Don Draper VQ at The Forge…

7 SOJ Front Men arrived to enjoy a spring morning run knowing today would be long with a 2120 Tipoff in store. Route=Tarrington Run and circle JRHS and back to the flag! Number-ama, Name-r-ama, Announcements: Old Glory at No Toll tomorrow to celebrate all those we have lost and a need to honor them! Prayers for YHC and his M. YHC took us out! NMS: Rosie and Gumbo having been logging miles so easy pace this morning. Doozy was out leading the pack but Rosie tracked him down on THE HILL! Bullseye, Orange Crush, and Lug Nut=solid pace and run…

Spring Break and the cold weather seems to have kept a few of the regular RiverRunners away for the morning. The three that made it discussed YHC’s original plans to do some hill repeats but decided to wait for another day with more PAX to get that done. A flatter yet still repetitive route was chosen, the River loop. Down into the park around the loop and back to the school loop – repeato until 0615. 1 loop is slightly less than 2 miles. Some extra or adjustment here and there to get the time to work out right Great…
