YHC thought that it was just going to be he and TYA for the Roller Coaster run this evening, but as YHC pulled into the parking lot behind Palani Drive, he was happy to see Posh already parked and ready to go. Not far behind, Ronnie showed up ready to go and then, the man himself, TYA pulled in and met us at the corner ready to start, except, his running shorts were on inside-out. Now, if you don’t already know, TYA has some challenges with running attire. Well, this attire looked like Florence Griffith Joyner with her underwear outside…

One PAX bounded up, down, around, and over the Roller Coaster on this fine Wednesday. With Bodo’s insightful words fresh from this morning’s beatdown and the rain adding a refreshing environmentally-friendly cleansing (with props to Ollivander), YHC motored through one Big, one Medium, and one Small loop. Untimed. NMS: It’s great to run solo, it’s great to run in the rain, and it’s great to have take some time for introspection. Check, check, and check. Announcements: YHC encouraged YHC to figure out ways to drive more men to more 3rd F.

Tres hombres posted, each with his own approach, to this edition of the Roller Coaster. Temps were sunny and 70. No humidity, no heat, no problem. Swirly did one long, one medium, one small. Somewhere around 4.5 miles. UpChuck did one medium, one small. Somewhere around 3+ miles. TYA walked a few laps in preparation for this weekend’s 100+ mile hike. NMS: The ladies of Hillcrest apparently have never seen a runner, certainly not on a hot day.

2 studs posted this afternoon for Roller Coaster and here is how it went down. TYA – 1 long loop 1 medium loop Swirly – 1 long loop 1 medium loop 1 short loop TyA did a great job especially just coming off his 50k this past weekend – well done dude. Although we both had some heartburn from lunch…. It felt great to be out running the hills on a beautiful evening! See y’all in the gloom .

3 PAX disregarded the fartsack and weather to run in the very early morning gloom. With no rain at 4 we took to North Bank to Browns Island. We then chose to not push our luck, head up to Main street and head West to meet up with that other Pre-Dogpile group. 7 miles when we reached ETs. NMS- Running the trails in the dark was awesome this morning, as it always is. Thanks to Vinny and Shakedown for showing up for this first one. Next Early Risers will be in May. Come out to give it a try. Also…

Some ran, Some ate, Some drank, Some ran and ate and drank. The Route: Palani Drive parking lot to Granite Ave south to Cary Street. Crossover to Tempsford/Kennondale. Complete as many hill repeats as you like. Mosey back to Palani Drive. Apologies to Upchuck. He didn’t realize we were meeting behind the restaurant and didn’t see us when we took off. He ran his own route, though. Chum Bucket hit the trails and then met us for HDHH. He is training for a 50k with Johnsonville that will happen at the end of April. EF Hutton, Greenbow and his new…

2 dudes posted for Roller Coaster this evening in two different locations. Swirly : Trail run 7 mile loop = boom! TYA : Hillcrest – 2 long loops = Boom! Beautiful evening for a run – way to get some miles in buddy! Kubota we missed you and Husky out there. Next weeks Roller Coaster is @ a different location with a Happy Hour to follow – see BB or Kubota for details ! See y’all in the gloom

Four Horsemen attacked the trails during probably the most gorgeous evening we have had in 2019! Various start times and routes were taken including: Husky and YHC started early and got in some miles with an out and back on the North Bank. Swirly ran the whole 7+ mile loop starting with the North Bank and crossing the T. Pott to Buttermilk and back across the Nickel Bridge. TYA’s truck was in the parking lot, but as of this writing, YHC has not heard back from him. We may have to go find him later this evening. Good thing it’s…
