Old Stomping Grounds


2 of the RiverRun regulars and 1 PAX familiar with the territory out set out to do some work on the hills this morning.

The route was the typical one, Riverton Ridge into Tarrington, Ashwell Loop up to Robious and down Twin Team lane with a lap around the school to finish.  +/- 5 miles


Splinter rolled in the morning to his old stomping grounds of James River High School.  Splinter was part of the first graduating class when the school was opened.  There were some mud trails back then but no smooth neighborhood roads like there are now.

It was nice to catch up with Splinter during the run, talks revolved around upcoming reunions for James River and Midlothian.  Also a little BRR talk as Splinter assured YHC he would enjoy the legs that TYA has hand selected for him.  I don’t know if that’s good or bad.

Lugnut plans to run this evening at 7:30 from Bettie Weaver if any PAX want to join him.  YHC will not be able to make it.  Contact Lugnut if you are interested in meeting him out there.

Buzzkill has signed up for his VQ tomorrow at NoToll and based on his effort at previous posts I expect an excellent beat down.

See you in the gloom

  1. Great route this morning gents and thanks for the homecoming welcome. Last time I was on some of those hills we needed mud tires to get back.

    Hope to make it one more time before BRR.

  2. Great run this morning fellas…well the first and last half-miles that I could keep up with you guys. Now I know what those other swimmers in the pool with Katie Ledecky felt like.

    Love those hills.
