A Platoon of SOJ Roadrunners, 9 to be exact, posted to BWES to feel the warmth of RVA and get it all out! Route explained: Up Twin Team (but of course) to East Brigstock. 6 milers take E. Brigstock all the way to Winterfield (road does change to Netherfield for last 3/4 of mile) and back. 5 milers, E. Brigstock all the way till road name change, and back. 4 milers to bend in road, approx .5 miles, past Lake Patrick Henry, and back. Route did include traditional run by JRHS but that was not needed this morning. Mileage was spot on and time was short!
Number-ama, Name-r-ama, Annoucements: Puppy Pile last Saturday in May, 6/1, 0700-see Marv. Orange Crush asking for prayers with college friend who past suddenly, only 43 with a family! Convergence, Memorial Day, at Tredegar, 0700!
YHC took us out!

Each day we need to say thank you for the ability to fill air in our lungs and be a guiding light in the community.

Only those who post understand.
Loud and Proud,
