Ten of the usual suspects rolled into UR for a beautiful 60 degree morning run.
4 milers – take UR drive our to River Road, cross bridge, cloverleaf the exits and back the same way.
5 milers – same as four milers, at bottom of exit ramp head west to stop sign, go left (south) up Southampton to Cherokee, return to beginning after hitting Cherokee.
6 milers – cross bridge, head west upriver to Hickory until Cherokee, return to Southampton, head up Southampton to Cherokee again, return to beginning.
Moleskin: Saab is back! Well, kind of, he seemed in good spirits from the take off. Apparently Flipper has magic hands. Good paces out there today. Glad to hear the 6 milers at least tried the intended route which as Splinter points out might is nearer to 6.25 or so for the 6 mile route. YHC was aiming to keep this a light hill day after the BRR last week, just get the legs moving again, thus the bridge route was chosen. YHC almost took out a Seal Team member running across the bridge, the PAX didn’t seem to mind if this happened.
As noted above, YHC has seen a peacock living in the area near Southampton and Cherokee on his travels to work. The peacock was not seen or heard from this morning, but YHC is hoping he makes an introduction on one of the south of the James runs.
