Some Bad Gumbo on the Post-Easter River Run


4 SOJ stalwarts posted to River Run on this beautiful, maybe a little hot, post-Easter morning to start the week off with a little run to lighten our load after the Easter feast…some of us took that literally.  Wilson greeted YHC with “Dogs and Kids” as he was already in a hurry, so quick instructions and we took off.  YHC decided to forgo the mountainous hills around River Run for a new route, it went a little something like this:

From BWES head towards Robious Road and across to the sidewalk near Twin Team.  Take a right on the sidewalk and follow the sidewalk West on Route 711 down past Keswick Farm to Winterfield Road.  Turn left on Winterfield Road (or cut through the shopping center) and head South up Winterfield Drive to the entrance of Founders’ Bridge.  Turn right into Founders’ Bridge.  I think LugNut and Wilson turned around after the first median and headed back to BWES.  Honeymoon and YHC ran into Founders’ Bridge further before we turned around and headed back.  The goal was to get to the Independence Golf Course parking lot, but the aliens inside YHC’s stomach had other ideas.  Pretty run on the way back as Keswick Farm was a lit up a little and the animals were making some noise.  It is a steady uphill climb back to the flag though. YHC clocked in right at 4.5 miles.

COT – Number-rama, name-a-rama and YHC took us out.

So, we were all feeling our over-indulgence from Easter a little bit, but apparently YHC ordered “The Special” and was screaming for a Pepto Bismol at the 2 mile mark.  YHC was forced to exit stage left and donate a Fudd to the woods of Midlothian.  I tell you, the 2nd half of the run felt much better a pound lighter.

Great to get in a run with good company this morning.  Thanks for posting guys.

Have a great day!  No more Gumbo for you!
