A lucky 7 showed up for the first TRAILZZZZ DAY we have had in a while. We all took full advantage of the dry trails by doing whatever we wanted. Lug Nut busted down the OG Loop, while TYA came in and went right back out for another. The rest of the pax enjoyed Forest Hill. Title comes from running in front of then behind then in front of then behind, etc. Sally on the bridge coming back across. Finally, Offshore said enough is enough and sit/stayed long enough to get me across. Beautiful morning for the trails again, they…

6 soldiers ignored the time change and posted on the first time of EDT DST. The Thang. Over the river and up the hill, left on riverside drive to the T. Pottersfield bridge, up the hill and back to the pump house. NMM Two groups of folks stayed relatively together today. Upchuck, Labrat, Shakedown and Gomer Pyle were in the lead group. Lug Nut and TYA made sure the six was taken care of. Perfect temp for a run this morning, cool but not cold. Lug Nut is on a roll. He had a steady, strong pace throughout and then…

9 humans and one canine posted on a beautiful Sunday morning at the Pump House parking lot. Route was over the bridge, east on the access road, loop around Belle Island, and back the access road. NMM: Lug Nut is killing it. That dude has been rocking out the runs and losing the LB’s. He is getting slimmer and faster by the day. If you want to piss Lab Rat off, just tell hime you are going to run on the trails when they are wet. Seriously, he will get pissed. More importantly, he is right about not running on…

Eight humans and one k-9 posted for Vinny’s one year F3 RVA anniversary celebration and ode to our great Commonwealth. Away we went. Up Pumphouse Road over to Robinson St. via the VITA course. Right on Cary St. Left on Meadown. Right on Monument/Franklin down to the Capital Building. Rocky style up to the top of the Portico steps – take it all in, collect the six. Return via Main to Meadow. 8.6 miles in total. Announcements: Slurpee has Breaking Bread tonight and could use some help. NMS: Today was a great day for a run, and it was an…

Five Ruckers, two runners, and a sweet dog named Sally met at the trail head but didn’t hit the trails. Furley and Saab ran (first time YHC has ever seen that guy in a shirt – it was a tiger face tank top – sweet). Not sure how far they went but The Ruckers went south, down Riverside, 10 merkins at TPot, simulated casualty situation with Sally across the bridge, over to Browns, then to and around Belle, access road back to Nickel Bridge 8.4 for most 9.2 for TYA who was doing extra credit. Sign up for the growruck…

Six showed up to run the trails on a beautiful frozen Sunday. Furley and Gong Show paired up and found a rhythm that nobody was keeping up with, so we set them loose to tackle Forest Hill. Offshore and Lab Rat teamed up with Lug Nut to do 4.5 miles, turning back at Reedy Creek and throwing in a few spurs to get the distance up a little. Upchuck was testing out the legs and wisely did not push his luck. ET’s was lively as well, even if it were just Upchuck and Lab Rat. Conversation did not lag. Lab…

Four posted on a dry but cool Sunday morning for a ruck. The group crossed the river, traversed the buttermilk, took the flood wall and came back on the northbank trail. Route was a little about 8.5 miles. It was my longest ruck to date. It was great to get out and have a nice walk with the group. Rucking is great for fellowship as it does allow you to exercise and talk at the same time. No concerns with safety, Shakedown is always packing. TYA OUT

Sunday was a weird one, as many of the usual suspects were MIA.  3 runners and one fat bike rider showed up at the designated time and location to check off the box.  Route for runners was North bank to T. Pott bridge and back on Buttermilk.  Fun was had, and the lead (running and conversation) was swapped between us all.  Great trio of runners. We caught up with Tonka at the bridge and were talking with him about his comment on TYA being in Gong Show’s car….we told him he was not in fact there, he asked who was. …

5 humans and one canine posted on a chilly Sunday Morning. Offshore, Sally, Mr. Ferlie and TYA hit the frozen trails.  They were in great shape when we ran them, but a few hours later, they would have been really messy.  Saab took to the streets and put in a nine mile jaunt.  Tonka hit the trails with his bike. The question is “at what temperature does Mr. Ferlie put on clothing on his upper body” Second F at ET’s with Tonka, Saab and TYA.  Always a good time. TYA Out

Three PAX emerged after the rain for a run while the mayor of Sunday Funday was out. Flipper, Offshore and Sally took Idlewood to Oregon Hill to Belle Isle to the access road.  Saab went the other way around and took Riverside Drive to Mayo Bridge (?) and back on the northside.  PAX waved to each other across the Belle Isle parking lot as they nearly crossed paths. YHC and Flipper discovered and enjoyed new views of Hollywood Cemetery(?) along Cherry Street and of the river by running upstream along the access road.   Just when you think you’ve seen…
