Tootle, Pip and Cheerio…To DK’s House We Go


3 eager chaps paid no mind to the rain and posted to River Run to start the work week with a leisurely stroll, that went something like this (at least for 2 of us):

Waste no time increasing the heart rate – head straight to and up Twin Team hill, right on Cawood Drive into Powderham, right on Drakewood Rd, left on Glendowner Rd – cross Ellesmere and take a right on  Gryphon Rd.  Around the corner it turns into Stonegate briefly, then right on Radstock – that turns into Kings Lynn Rd.  Cross Salisbury Rd and continue until we see DK’s house.  Tap the mailbox and return as we came.

LugNut did his own things and avoided barking dogs.

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

No new announcements – just get on a team and log some miles for the CSAUP.


Great running with Rosie (thanks for waiting for me to summit Twin Team – man that is a killer).  Strong pace after that.  Thanks for pushing me.

Despite our watches saying 2.5 miles and 22:30 minutes right at DK’s mailbox, somehow our return route clocked in just slightly shorter.  No worries, a loop around the BWES parking lot and we nailed 5 miles on the dot.

We could see the LugNut beacon of light in the distance as we returned but we could not overtake him.  Good work Lug.

Have a great day men.  No more Gumbo for you!

  1. Great job in the rain this morning guys.

    NoToll fields should be nice and soft for Flatline’s Q tomorrow…always entertaining.

  2. Nice! Hope the rain washed all the flu germs off of the mailbox!
    Lots of flu inside the house right now.
    Nasty stuff.

  3. That sucks man. Hope it leaves soon and everyone gets well.

    This is a good route – killer start, then steady and fast with a fun downhill finish. We will do it again when you are back out there.
