Beautiful day for a run and a preview of better weather to come.
We all decided that with the BRR less than two weeks out we need to take advantage of the training opportunity.
On the Mayo bridge route there are some detours. Over Saab’s mild objection YHC wanted to recon the blown out part of Riverside and see if it has improved yet. It’s still blown out and deep enough that it swallows a full size excavator. Saab did not want to add “construction equipment scramble” nor my other pastime of “lets explore the local population’s tolerance for runners on their property” to the run so we backtracked a bit. All apologies Saab, and thanks for the company. We split at Maymont and Saab did the loop around the perimeter of Byrd Park and some Love Hill repeats. YHC likes the Mayo route as a prep for BRR, closer to the variation of the race without the stops and hazards on the trail.
TYA and Olivander can comment on their route.
Get your miles in boys!
