Always 70 and Sunny



Fifteen strong showed up for spring time in January.  Fourteen by foot and one on two wheels.

Commonwealth to Cary and head East.  Take a left on Hamilton and take to Westwood.  4 and 5 milers take a left on Westwood coming back on Malvern to Grove with 5 milers taking a victory lap around the school block when they get back.  6+ milers take a right on Westwood to the Boulevard and back on Grove.

Marv took us out today offering a special prayer for the treasonous Aaron Burr.


YHC has been reading Chernow’s biography of Alexander Hamilton and wanted to honor the founding father with a route the entire length of his namesake road.  Running with Lab Rat and Upchuck, YHC did not realize he would also get a musical today.  Going under the first underpass we experienced “Under the Bridge” by the Chili Peppers and upon the second underpass “Under the Boardwalk” by the Drifters.  There was also some Dark Side of the Moon (during the impromptu astronomy discussion) , Timberlake, and yes, Hanson.

On another note, it turns out there is a massive WDog headquarters on the other side of Broad St.  That AO is taking off!  It must be the t-shirts.

This may be episode one of YHC’s founding fathers running series.


About Author


  1. Nice run today, Lock Jaw, and surely an unexpected opportunity to practice my musical skills, to the extent there are any.

  2. Sorry to miss this one. I am in the early stages of the book as well and the Rosie household is a big fan of the soundtrack. Hamilton, not the LabRat/Upchuck duet.

  3. We need Lockjaw on the F3RVA podcast, as our resident historian, to do a “this month in history” segment

  4. Yeah, running with Lockjaw always makes me feel that I should have paid more attention in school. Running with Upchuck is a constant reminder that I should have paid more attention to specifically Spanish class.

    Loved the company this morning, guys!

  5. Labrat, the los caminos de la muerte debate was case in point. Thanks again for haunting me with “mmmbop” as I cannot shake it.

    HD, my podcast could discuss the application of history to workouts. Maybe we will have a reenactment workout theme….

  6. Swirly (F3 Corporate) on

    Nice route Lockjaw ! Great run today guys..
    Yeah we will have lockjaw on as a special guest segment soon!
    See y’all in the gloom..

  7. Lockjaw, I see you Q-ing a July 3 re-enactment of Pickett’s Charge…1.5 mile walk over an open field with sandbags (in the heat).

    Shoot me now.

  8. Although I felt duped on the length of the 6 mile, it was a nice change of route. (Duped is my way of saying I wasn’t paying attention during instruction period.)

    Did all I could to keep up with the 6(.5) milers today..McFly, Phonics, Sippy, and Marv were toolin’. Marv breaking-out in song from the Hamilton show was a highlight…That silky radio voice transfers well to Broadway showtunes.
