10 studs showed up on the day after a snow day to run.  Hill repeats were the call by the Q, but not Splinter type hill repeats.  The repeat was a 1 mile out and back from the lake to three chopt.  You can figure out the math on how many each of us did. NMM Pucker was flying today.  He lost six pounds in the last 15 days. The loop wasn’t quite 1 mile, so I owe you guys a couple of tenth’s, depending how far you ran. Swirly kept the 6’s in sight for most of the run.…

16 studs and one hound posted for a Tuesday morning run at UofR.  Route was up the main entrance, to 3 Chopt, to grove, 4 milers turn back at oak, five milers and Locke, and six milers at Malvern. NMM Not a lot of positive feedback when YHC announced the route today.  Seems the Lockjaw’s constant creativity sets the bar hight for runs.  TYA is a creature of habit (not as much as Swirly is), so he likes tried and tested routes.  So today was perfect for at least one of the PAX.

3 Pax showed up for an early morning run amid confusion and jet lag. After realizing everyone else was working out at 7am, we decided to embrace the morning and hit a run anyway. Short jaunt to Libbie/Patterson and back rounded out 4 miles, allowing Flipper to make it to the next workout . Kudos to Hitchiker for getting off a flight from Korea and then hitting up an early morning run. Enjoyed the fellowship gentlemen. – Tonka

Three merry gentlemen converged upon UR to take in a run (and light-tour) a-la Mount Henrico route.  Four, Five, and Six mile options were represented. Merry Christmas everyone.

One shy of 12 huddled around big blue waiting for instructions but they never came. BT proclaimed, “It’s 5:30!” and YHC said, “Follow Me!”  Groaning ensued. Mosey by group to the base of Roselawn and Towana and collect the PAX. After the recollection of the good spirited cheer YHC received while trying to help propagate the 12 days of Christmas last year, YHC pronounced his intentions for this year’s 12 days. What better way than intervals. We’ve never done 12 intervals before so YHC figured today seemed like a great day to try. There was a warning blast on twitter…

10 Spider regulars opted for a flat start at Grove and Libbie, although ice was still prevalent, the running ensued. 3 Routes Down Grove to 195,4 Mile, to Cleveland, 5 Miles, or Davis, 6 miles, with the added option of running for 23 minutes and just turn around. TYA took us out. Moleskin When YHC arrived at the alternate AO, Big Blue, had three occupants, TYA, Kubota, and of Course, Swirly. As YHC entered the vehicle, TYA had already belted himself in – Safety First. No worries, YHC easily climbed around. TYA began to explain the route down Grove, across…

7 stalwarts posted for a Tuesday morning jaunt.  Route was out of UR to three chops, to grove, to oak.  Five milers turn back at oak, six milers take a loop on hillcrest and then head back. NMM Great weather for a run.  36 degrees and no humidity.  Perfect. BT made a guest appearance after a 3 week hiatus from F3.  Despite the absence he had a good run with Swirly.  McFly started out with the six milers and was no where to be found at the end of the run.  Seems he had an unexpected date with a BM…

An industrious nine checked the weather and realized the heavy stuff wouldn’t be down for a while.  On for a run. The Route Up the other hilly road to the main entrance. 4s – Take a left and then a right up Boatwright.  At Three Chopt, jog to the right and take Honaker to Patterson. 5s/6s – Take a right up the hill to Three Chopt and hang a right.  5s take a left on St Christopher’s.  6s go to Grove to Granite and hang a left to Patterson. 4s, 5s, and 6s are now on Patterson.  Head west to…
