13 Heat Seeking Missiles targeted Spider Run this morning to try to find the heat. It didn’t take long! PAX studies laminated route maps. 5:30am and BOOM! Off we go!
4’s, 5’s and 6’s all head around the top side of the lake and escape campus via University Dr. Take University up to Ralston. Left on Ralston to River. River to E. Glenbrooke Circle. Turn on W. Glenbrooke Circle and wind around to Twin Lake. 4’s hang a right on Roslyn Hills and then a hard right into the playground. 5’s take Melwood from Twin Lake up to September and then a right on Roslyn Hills. Hard left into playground. 6’s take a left on Roslyn Hills from Twin Lake and then a right on Ruggles. Right on Charnwood up to Melwood up to September over to and down Roslyn Hills and a hard left into the playground. All routes then run through the playground, up the trail, by the old house, down the driveway and hop onto University to Ralston to University back down to the lake. 4’s take the bridge route back to VSF. 5’s and 6’s take the top side of the lake to the VSF with 6’s running a third of the way to the bridge and back to VSF.
Numberama, Namearama and YHC took us out
Great run this morning. Lots of hills and heat. We couldn’t have gotten any wetter if we had jumped in the lake. Several PAX’s abodes were passed this morning including YHC’s, Keymaster’s, Slurpee’s and Honeydo’s on the 6 mile route. YHC drove the route yesterday and didn’t realized the amount of hills that were included on the route until YHC actually ran the route. Of course when one drives the route, the legs do not feel the inclines! YHC was shooting for 5 this morning, but the heat and hills brought him back to reality and he settled for the 4 mile route which ended up being 4.25!(BOOM!) The title of this Backblast and the name of the route is due to YHC telling everyone that instead of selling tractors at work yesterday, YHC was printing out and laminating maps for the different routes. Bleeder then suggested that YHC should have been making laminated maps for tractor demonstration routes instead while at work.
It looks as though Breaking Bread does not have a Q for this Sunday!!!! Someone sign up, please! It is something you will never forget especially if you take your 2.0’s! YHC is surprised Lab Rat is not jumping up and down about this. (Your welcome for the Backblast mention, Lab Rat!)
Puppypile is this Saturday at 7:05am immediately following Dogpile. Sippy Cup had the lead.
4th of July convergence at Tredegar at 7am on July 4! YHC will start us off and then pass the hot potato. Hardywood/Kubota sponsored Coffeteria/Breakfast immediately following. There may be a swim involved after, as well.
Lockjaw and Kubota are planning on a kayak/canoe trip soon while the water level looks good. Huguenot Flatwater is the possible AO. This would count as an Off the Books post for those trying to complete the Summer challenge. We will let everyone know when. (note: canoes/kayaks are not supplied)
Have a great Tuesday all!
