Five strong mosey into the gloom for what was intended to be a rather simple loop.
The traditional route through Tarrington with the 5 milers making the loop and 4 milers proceeding immediately up “pain in the Ashwell hill”. Turn left on Robious and right on Ellesmere. Follow to Brigstock and turn RIGHT. Left onto Twin Team and back to Bettie Weaver.
With the SOJ crew spread across the AO’s YHC was not expecting a large turnout today on the home turf. YHC was pleasantly surprised however to see Phonics and Lab Rat at the AO. After learning the mighty warriors from the east made the journey SOJ in one day YHC knew they were ready for a River Run beatdown. Honeymoon opted to take the lead for the 5 mile crew and off they went at 5:31. Now YHC ran/jogged/generally moseyed along the 4 mile route with the goal of returning to the AO before my F3 brothers could arrive. This was truly a race no one knew they were in other than YHC. Feeling elated after returning to Bettie Weaver without being caught by the PAX I mosey back up Twin Team to meet the crew. But they are not there? I wait, and wait, and wait…… feeling concerned about the guys YHC text Wilson to get Honeymoon’s number. I call …. no response. YHC hops in the car and goes on the hunt, but to no avail. At 7 a.m. Honeymoon and I catch up and he is driving to pick up the remaining PAX and return all to the AO. #1 Happy to report everyone was ok. #2 In 90 minutes the 5 mile crew covered between 8 and 9 miles. #3 Was it an accident, or was it an epic SOJ RiverRun BEATDOWN!?!?!?
