Always 70 and Sunny

Name the Route Contest


An even dozen came out to burn some pre-holiday calories.  Routes were created for all distances, but only takers for 5 and 6s.


  • Up to the road to the main entrance and turn right to make the ascent to Three Chopt.
  • Take the access road to Grove.  Left on Grove.
  • 5s turn left on Wilton, Left on Dillwyn, Right on Seneca to Patterson
  • 6s turn left on Wisteria to Patterson
  • All routes go west bound on Patterson to Honaker.  Left on Honaker to Three Chopt.
  • Cross Three Chopt to the right and down Boatwright past the stadium, the Robins Center and around the parking lot to drop down to the lake.
  • 5s do a counter clockwise loop of the lake to conclude at the VSF.
  • 6s just head back to the VSF.

YHC took us out.


Not too much mumble chatter this morning.  The Pax liked the route and sounds like it is a new classic.  I pose a challenge to the Pax to name this route.  The best idea will be taken from the post.


  • Wednesday – Special kid friendly Hoedown for the 2.0s @ 6:30 am for 45 minutes.
  • Thursday – Thanksgiving workout at Mary.  Holiday time at 6:00 am with coffee afterwards.
  • Sunday – Breaking Bread – See Hardywood for details and to offer a hand.
  • Next Wednesday the 29th – “Red Wine and Crayons” HDHH at TYAs newly completed project that coincidentally is Marv’s future home.  Ms and 2.0s welcome.  See backblast.

Time to Taper,
