Tour of UR with a little catch me if you can…

7

10 strong posted on this beautiful first day of May 2018 to get a tour of the UR campus and surrounding neighborhood and log some miles.  The routes were as follows:

4-mile loop took us up gateway past the b-school, left on campus, left on boatright, right on university, left on pinetree, left on Westham pkwy, cross river road onto country squire lane, left on s. ridge and around on westham station through the river road shopping center and back to the flag via the UR drive entrance off river road.

5 milers and 6 milers started with a 1-mile loop up by the baseball field and around the lake.

6 milers (Saab and Sippy) added a second 1-mile loop at the end.

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

NMS:

Perfect morning for a run and strong effort by everyone, especially Saab for setting the pace today.  He was shot out of a cannon from the work GO and never looked back.  Try though he might, Sippy couldn’t track him down.

A few deceptive uphill stretches (a least more than YHC expected), especially climbing Pinetree to Westham Pkwy.  Great to run with Shakedown and have him push my pace today.

Announcements:

  • HDHH – May 16 at Independence Golf Club.  Nothing formal but plan to meet between 5:30 and 6:30 to hit some balls on the range if you want.  Followed, by some food and drink there at Tavern 19.  Come out for some fellowship and iron out the kinks before Wilson’s golf tourney on May 18.
  • Wilson’s golf tourney May 18 – www.forethecause.org.  Find a team or create a team.  Come out and support the cause.
  • Congrats to Hot Rack on his retirement from the army after 28+ years (I think is what I heard from TwoCan).  MUCH RESPECT and thank you for your service!  Hope you enjoy retirement and hope to see you back out at F3 soon.

As I said when I took us out, it is such a blessing to be able to show up to different AOs and catch up with different groups of guys anytime but always knowing that a few things remain constant – positive energy, motivation and enthusiasm for the day and for facing our challenges head on.  It is uplifting and inspiring, and I am grateful for it every single time I post.  Thank you!  Keep up the great work men!

No More Gumbo For You!

  1. Great to have you on the local Spider Run rotation Gumbo and thanks for leading today. The route you planned is a keeper.

    Being the first runner out is highly overrated. It seems I missed the blond ladies…(i.e. the ones that TwoCan would have been more than happy to “swipe right” for.)
