Time to check out the new sidewalk


6 men arose from the slumber to ward off a case of Mundays and to log a few miles.  YHC wanted to test out the new sidewalk on the southside of Robious Rd.  The plan was as follows:

Left out of BWES and circle around by JRHS to Robious Rd.  Right on the Northside sidewalk heading West and first right into River Downs North.  Loop around (with a slight left near the park and a left onto Lennox Forest) back to Robious Rd and across to the Southside.  Then the fun begins…first right, first left, first right  to get onto Post Mill Drive (easy peasy, right?  Sorry for not clarifying which Post Mill).  Follow Post Mill Drive around and up a short but steep climb to River Downs South – 4 milers go left and back to the flag; 5 milers go right, then left at onto Royal Crest and up the roller coaster hill and down the long Queens Grant hill (otherwise knows as Aisle 5 Hill), then right on River Downs South and back to the flag via the new sidewalk.

Here is the 4 mile route:  https://www.mapmyrun.com/routes/view/2248376716

COT, Number-rama, Name-a-rama and YHC took us out.


  • CSAUP is Saturday – see TYA’s pre-blast for details
  • Healing place runs on Saturday – see Swiper
  • Bring your coats and winter clothes out for shelters and get them to Marmaduke

Great running with Rosie as always, especially watching him kick it into that extra gear a few times, including up the roller coaster hill.  We had a few opportunities for flying EHs but those guys were moving.  Rosie could have caught them if he wanted to.

Great to  have Mr. Roper back out after his best Terry Tate office linebacker impression on a tree in Pocahontas State Park.  Way to push.  Hope those ribs are healing.

Have a great Monday and a great week men!

  1. Great being back out to River Run….it’s been 6 months probably, and knocking the dust off didn’t hurt quite as badly as I had feared. Good catching up with Roper, and great seeing Lug Nut for the first time in 18 months. Dang!
