A K9 and her frisbee tosser embraced the freezing rain for a Sunday morning jaunt. The Thang: Mosey to the access road for some full-tail-wag off-leash action, cross at Belle Isle, return through Oregon Hill. NMM: Boulevard was closed before the Pumphouse parking lot, so U-turn and park in the Dogpile parking lot.  Since Nickel Bridge was closed, there were no cars and YHC could cross without losing her you-know-what.  YHC is sure Offshore loved the 2 inches of slush.  The PAX saw two sets of boot tracks and a set of bike tracks.  F3 PAX?  We would never find…

13 warriors rose to greet the dawn of a new day. Seeing how today is the day of The Epiphany we finally got some cooperation in the weather.  There was all kinds of calamity out of the gate.  We had some trail runners, some road warriors and a few who followed the beat of their own drums.  According to legend it went a little something like this. Across the Nickel Bridge to the trails, then connect with the service road at Reedy Creek.  Run to the 22nd street stairs an on to the TPot and take the north side trails back…

Five runners and four ruckers posted on a beautiful Sunday morning.  The five runners headed over the nickel bridge and did a loop around forest hill park.  Flip dog took the buttermilk back, the rest of the crew opted for the buttermilk to T. Pottersfield, the north bank and back for a ten miler.  The ruckers headed over the bridge as well, all went to the spur and back for at least an hour and 20 minute ruck.  Shakedown, headed back out the trail to meet the guys at the two mile point and ran back to the parking lot.…

5 stallions and one filly trotted out for today’s edition of Sunday Funday.  Temps were sunny and 70 with the occasional dip into the 30’s.  More or less, the following likely happened: Route: South bank to some form of bridge to North Bank.  Some runners did the lariat.  Reedy Creek was running high and dead calm.  No movement.  Runners were forced onto the road to cross.  Runners descended the slope to re-connect with Buttermilk. Some did Belle Isle.  Some did Pottersfield Br.  Re-connect at the Tredegar parking lot in time to see a shirtless Mr. Farley in a Santa hat. …

7 warriors posted on a Sunday morning.  Trails were too wet, so a road run was in order.  Over the river, up the hill, left on Riverside, cross over on T. Pottersfield bridge, make you way back on the north side to the pump house parking lot. NMM Rosie got a bonus four miles this morning pre launch.  He is training for his Tybee Island race weekend and getting in as many miles as possible.  Rosie, Hardywood, and Saab logged in nine miles this morning. They got a bit of extra mileage by running through the fan.  The rest of…

Which was perfect!  7 runners made the cutoff +5 minutes to beat the snow…but not quite. No plans were set in stone, even though Ollivander showed up in full hydration mode, looking like he was ready to run 20 miles. TYA suggested Forest Hill loop and back, which was perfect, so we went with that.  Lab Rat set the pace, aiming for bro code speeds.  The group stayed together the whole way and were joined by the snow as we climbed up Forest Hill.  It was a beautiful morning and we hit the snow perfectly….it was starting to get slick…

4 men who just have not have not had enough Gumbo this week posted to the Sunday Funday run this morning.  Vinny even came barreling in with the Stache still in tact – that thing should have its own side-car.  The consensus was that the trails were likely muddy, so instead we opted for the roads.  We crossed the bridge over to Riverside Drive and worked our way down to Pottersfield bridge and across, up the big hill from Tredgard up toward the Va War Memorial, then weaved our way through Oregon Hill and back to the Pump House.  By…

3 stalwarts posted for a Sunday morning run a few days after thanksgiving.  We took went over the nickel bridge, picked up the access road, crossed at the T. Pottersfield bridge, and came back on the Northbank. Flipper is an animal.  He kept pace on the entire route and ripped off an 1:14 minute 7 miles on the trails.  Great work.  Shakedown filled in admirably for Lab Rat, keeping the conversation going the entire way.  But, alas, no one can talk as much and on a varied number of topics like Mr. Rat. TYA OUT 1 week til the Bear…
