Always 70 and Sunny

A rowdy and disrespectful clan takes to the streets of RVA


Another fine morning for running, with clear, cold, and calm conditions (I question the conditions for wind making contraptions, aka bicycles).  14 Pax came out to embrace the morning, and get in a cardio workout of his choice.  It went down like this:

Everybody out Commonwealth to Monument.  4 milers right on Boulevard, 5 milers right on Meadow, 6 milers right on Harrison.  Everybody back on Grove.

Bikers, do their own thing, meet up at VSF for COT.


Sounds like we are having more issues with our designated early morning tomato greeter.  This morning, it seems as though we were being too loud and not respecting the neighbors.  YHC highly doubts that, being as there were only the 3 riders left when she got out of the car.  Maybe we should take back ownership of the parking spot to give her something more legitimate to complain about?  Probably not the Christian thing to do, but it’s worth considering…

Run was pretty uneventful it sounds like.  YHC was really feeling the strain though after Saab’s relentless beatdown From 45 MOM the morning before.  Luckily Fudd joined up for the last two miles and was literally holding in merlot from the night before, which took the focus off my pain.


-Plenty of chatter about Riverrock in May, which also has several events for biking (just sayin’).  Also, plenty of chatter about BRR.

-There was also much ado about the March monthly challenge (100 miles run/200 miles bike) laid out by Lockjaw.  Also of note:  NO post for Lockjaw this morning.  Corporate has made note of absence, which may have been listed as unexcused after laying down above challenge.


Well Done Gentlemen!

  1. Enjoyed running with you Swirly. I had hopes of us catching BT but he was motoring this am. I am in for the 100 mile challenge, it is tough but attainable.

  2. Swirly (F3 Corporate) on

    Me too Honeydo thanks for running with me, enjoyed the conversation and pace – felt great out there this morning …
    Maybe we can catch BT next week – dude was rolling this morning.. Way to go BT you will be @ your spring summer time before long buddy..
    LabRat – love the proverb dude – thanks for sharing ..
    Lockjaw’s absence is unexcused unless proper documentation/notification / or prior approval from another member of the corporate executive team other than me….
    See y’all in the cold gloom!

    I do nothing half way because the way I see it we all have three choices in life – we can give up – we can give in – or we can give it all we’ve got – so choose !
    FYI pax : Corporate is real !

  4. Good run, fellas. And kudos to the Gears crew for risking frostbite at those breakneck speeds. Fudd, muchos props for rocking a hangover, showing up late and still going out to find the PAX. Stout. About the lady complaining about our volume: was it a teacher at the school or just someone from the neighborhood? We must be pretty loud to have a woman come up to 20 men in pitch black darkness and tell us to quiet down. Thanks a lot, TYA.

  5. I fartsacked this am! However, I did log my miles on my own today. Hopefully corporate will count those in my favor.
