2 appeared in the dark today for the weekly trail run along the banks of the James River. Other regulars who were absent today were TYA and Lab Rat, who were running the Willis Creek 35k.
Given Offshore’s time constraints, his plan started with a straight out and back run (30 minutes each way). Plans were thwarted, however, when he chose to stick with YHC through the south side run to Forest Hill loop – thus adding about 20 minutes extra to his run. Upon exiting the loop, Offshore and YHC parted company, with Offshore heading back on the South side, and YHC heading East to the ‘new bridge’ with a return on North side.
Respect to TYA and Lab Rat (and any others?) running the Willis River 35k today…a distance YHC could only cover these days if either chased by a ferocious animal, or if chasing a pair of well positioned tights (NOT TYA’s).
On this day in history, Sully Sullenberger flew his plane into a flock of unsuspecting birds…there were no survivors.
