Kubota, meet Twin Team…

5

7 veterans, but one Twin Team virgin, posted to River Run to log some miles.  Several folks are putting in the miles in preparation of BRR.  Others are checking off a box  on their way to completing the Summer Challenge.  Either way, it was a great group this morning to pound the pavement.

We took off out of BWES and turned right…yep, that means we are going up Twin Team.  Up Twin Team to the second right onto Cawood and into Powderham.  First right onto Drakewood.  First left onto Glendower.  Glendower becomes Bosham and then Drakewood again (unless you are Bleeder and Lug Nut and you jumped onto Ellesmere off Glendower before the changing road names).  Right onto Ellesmere and out to Robious Road.  Kubota loved Twin Team so much he decided to head back and down Twin Team.  The rest of us crossed Robious and into Tarrington and down Ashwell hill toward the River.  With a left just past the poolhouse and a few other turns, we ended up back at BWES.

All returned safely, without getting lost, by the closing bell.  With mileage ranging from 4 to 5.5.  Good run guys.

COT, COR, NOR and YHC took us out.

Announcements:

  • Puppy Pile 8/25 – Marv has the Q.
  • CSAUP coming up 10/20 — log some miles and drink some beers to prepare
  • Labor Day Convergence at Three Lakes Park, which we determined is 30-minutes away from everywhere.
  • Breaking Bread 8/26 – Gumbo has the Q and I’m bringing my 2.1 and 2.2 (12 and 10) – like last August.  Would love a couple PAX members to join.  Let me know if you ware interested and we will coordinate what to bring.  If you haven’t been yet, it is a great way to give back and give a few hours to folks who need it.

NMS:

Twin Team punched everyone in the gut this morning, but Phonics and Rosie were off like lightening after we reached the flat portion of the run.  They circled back a few times to check on us mortals.  Way to push guys.  It was great running with Honeymoon this morning.  Our paces were all over the board and we circled back a couple times to make sure we hadn’t lost Kubota  or that he hadn’t broken down.  It was a little confusing with several different runners in our group and others going every which way.  Bleeder and LugNut cruised right along and blazed their own trail.

Well done fellas!

No More Gumbo For You!

  1. Nice route, Gumbo. The part of it that I ran. Struggled after Twin Team hill! Brutal! After that, I was just in my own world and trying to figure out if other runners that I encountered were F3 or not. They were not. Enjoyed going back down Twin Team. Great group this morning. Have a good day!

  2. That was my first trip up Twin Team today. Wow! What a brutal hill. Thank you Rosie for guiding me through the route today. Only 2 more stops on the summer tour for me.

  3. Thanks for introducing Kubota and Phonics to Twin Team Gumbo, I knew it was coming and it still sucked. Glad Phonics was there to push the pace, thanks for slowing things down for me Phonics.
