Sweats Up!


15 emerged from post holiday (as well as basketball and hockey) slumbers for this week’s Spider Run.

The Kanawha route was called in 4, 5, and 6 mile variations.  Out the River Rd entrance and hang a left and then immediate right in front of the shopping center.  Hang a right on Westham Station and begin the ascent up a nice hill.  Hang a right at the top onto Country Squire which will put you out on Westham Pkwy.

4s – Hang a right on University Dr and back to campus with a lap and half around the lake.

5s/6s – Hang a left on University Drive, right on Ralston, left on University Dr to Ziontown.  Cross Ridge and cut through the parking lot to Forest.

5s take a right on Lakewood and then a right on Westham Parkway and a left on University Drive to return to the lake.

6s take a left on Forest and then a right on Rock Creek, right on Baldwin, and a right on Westham Pkwy.  Take a left on University Drive to return to the lake.

Bleeder took us out.

  1. The soup was thick today and that climb up S Ridge and Country Squire is no joke. Great route. Great running with Fudd and BT and having Swiper loop back and finish with us. Great job guys.

  2. Nice run this morning! Needed that to get rid of the sore legs from yesterday. Have a great Tuesday!

  3. Good one Lockjaw. We missed the last loop back to University… explains why we were a little short. Guess I owe you .3 miles.

  4. Big Tennessee on

    I don’t think I’ve done that version somehow. No doubt that climb rivals Tempsford in my mind. Great to have Swiper and Gumbo push me to the point that we finally started going downhill. BT needs a nap.

  5. I really wanted to enjoy this run, but as Gumbo pointed out, when the number of beers you drink the night before (3) exceeds the hours of sleep you got (2), that’s not a formula for success or an enjoyable run. Regardless, I did enjoy seeing everyone as well as running with Gumbo, BT, and Swiper. I’m not ashamed to admit that I pulled over at the rest stop in Spotsylvania and took a 20 minute power nap. Good route Lockjaw.

  6. Respect for showing up Fudd!

    I admit, when I started reading the sentence, “I’m not ashamed that I pulled over…”, I was certain that was going to end with “took a FUDD!” A power nap works too.

    Great to see you this morning.

  7. Sounds like an opportunity for Offshore to find a formula describing beers (indirect relationship) and hours of sleep (direct relationship) to the number of optimal miles run.

    It was good to have a Fudd sighting.

  8. Wow. Quite a night, Fudd. I commented to Lockjaw that you were looking slower than your normal self…hope you got a nap today.

    The run was at the top of the moistness scale. Yuck.
