We Must Build Dikes of Courage to Hold Back the Fear of Flood

Four squeegees emerged from the Fart Sack to squeeze out a Dry Foot / Wet Foot Sunday Funday run.  The morning went something like this…

6:40 YHC arrived at Pump House Parking Lot.

6:41 YHC alone.

6:42 Same.

6:43 Same.

…fast forward to…

6:58 YHC still alone.

6:59 YHC considering whether to run alone.

6:59:22 Three cars pull up.  TYA, Vinny, and a player to be named later (YHC would say “No Idea who the other guy was,” but No Idea is a real guy.  YHC still does not know who the third car guy was.)

7:00 Chatting…

7:01 Chatting…

7:02 Chatting…

7:03 Start walking.  TYA ran 21 on Saturday, and he wants to walk up Pump House Hill.

7:04 Walking / chatting…

7:05 Walking / chatting…

7:06 …same…

7:07 …same…

7:08 …same…

…fast forward to…

Trio makes it to top of hill by Maymont.  By now, 7:45. (This is poetic license – Suspend your disbelief).  Trio starts jogging.

River running very high today, so the route went through Byrd Park and Randolph Neighborhoods.  TYA peeled off at Belvidere.  Vinny and YHC continued through Gambles Hill to Pottersfield Bridge to Riverside.  Reconnected with TYA and Saab in the 2000 Block of Riverside Drive.  Then, in the spirit of Brotherhood, the foursome split into 3 groups for the return trip.

YHC and Vinny took Riverside to a detour back to Riverside to Reedy Creek.  Then, the Access Road through the James River (flooding) to the Access Road to 42nd Street Bridge to Riverside to Boulevard Bridge and back to the VSF.  About 7.5 miles.

TYA and Saab, being wiser men, went home by other routes.

YHC was thrilled with the slow pace today.  After missing several Sundays, moseying seven plus was perfect.  YHC would have been happy to run all day at this pace.  Shout out to Vinny for good company and conversation.

ETs was a blast as always.  Shout out to TYA for merely threatening to take his socks off.  Always good to catch up with Snowden.  Also, ETs crowd included EHing “Jeff with family who does F3 in Greensboro.”  He looks like he needs an F3 workout about as much as Usain Bolt does.  BOLO for him this week…

Footnote: if you find your adult child(ren) sexting with TYA, there is a hotline you can call for help.  673-SAAB.  Trained volunteers are standing by.
