Fifteen men from Richmond and the surrounding areas converged at Mary Munford to end the week the right way.
6 Milers – MM down Grove to Henri to Campus Drive to UR Drive around the lake, up Ridgeway to Fairway to Robins to Iris to Stonehurst Green to St. Andrews Lane back to Grove to Mary Mumford.
5 Milers – The same except instead of running around the lake, they ran to Ridgeway. It is also likely that they did not turn onto Stonehurst.
4 Milers – The same except possibly did not go all the way along Campus Drive.
The joke of my nickname is that English is one subject I do not feel qualified to teach. But, since this is known as the Haiku Route, here we go.
What Perfect weather
Let’s go for a ride or run
Down Grove Here we go!
It’s that time of year
Marv and Sippy Cup discuss
Little League Baseball
Up Ridgeway is tough
Not easy to run and talk
But the views are great!
The Road less traveled
Let’s take St. Andrews to Grove
Is the way we went
Back on Grove we go
Still laughing at that poem.
Googled it at home.
COT – Numberama, Name-o-rama, Announcements YHC took us out.
After attempting to create a new route, YHC decided to select one of his favorite routes from Lockjaw’s many. As YHC was giving the directions, Sippy said that it was the Haiku route? Well, I gave it a try. I preparing myself mentally for the critiques.
As YHC was running with Marv and Sippy, he suggested that we run down St. Andrew’s. After doing this, Sippy and YHC had a discussion about Robert Frost and The Road Less Traveled. Sippy then told YHC about the following poem from a children’s book.
“Two roads diverged in a wood, and I
I took the one less traveled by. . .
Since then I’ve been completely lost.
Thanks for nothing, Robert Frost!”
He then told YHC about a poem that ended with Infinity minus one which was also hilarious. These got me to the end of the route. Thanks for Sharing Sippy!
