Take the bat cave entrance, cross the shopping center, and down Westham Station Road (WSR).

Back down to the fork and ascend Old Bridge.
Return to WSR. 4 milers head back to the SF. 5 milers climb Panorama and back. 6 milers continue out WSR and climb South Ridge Road to the top; then return to the SF.
Sippy Cup did a fine job taking us out.
YHC was contemplating a Mardi Gras themed run on this fine Fat Tuesday but the thoughts of how this Pax may elect to earn their beads caused some concern. I decided to stick with a straight hill run beatdown. Trace the run on a map and you can see why it has earned such a respectable name.
Not much mumble chatter on the run as we were all business hitting those hills. Post run discussion included:
-How TYA passes his time. Best of luck to you and your recovery.
-Reminiscing about the first Splinter HHDH. An event that led to the very brief, yet memorable, epoch of RVAF3 history – the kinder, gentler Toga. I wonder what life changing events will come of this upcoming event?
-Talk of the upcoming races. Spots open for each include non-runner support positions. See Toga for Ragnar and Swirly for Smokey Mountains.
-Local news was filming in our vicinity perhaps background filler video. Maybe we will make a cameo.
