Mount Humidity


Eleven runners of The Gloom met up on the shores of Spider Lake to conquer Mount Henrico. 5:28, route was described (badly), 5:29 Saab’s corrections were noted, and 5:30 the PAX was off. Temps were sunny and 70. Really.

Good mix of 6, 5, and 4 mile runners.

Number-am-a, Name-a-Rama, YHC took us out.


Convergence – yesterday. If you missed it, July 4 Convergence. Same location.

HDHH in mid-June

NMS: With Rosie making an appearance (Summer Tour?), Faceplant and Saab had a new rabbit to chase, and the threesome shot out like a cannonball. Boom! Swirly was not far behind, with Hutton close by. YHC was next for a bit, with Swiper catching up long enough for a courtesy hello before Swiper returned to his normal, well-faster than YHC pace. Lockjaw joined YHC and kept me going for a shorter than normal route. YHC’s directions were so bad that Toto and Bleeder smartly came up with their own route.

Good to see Rosie and other Summer Tourists out today. Way to earn your 0.1 point for attending a workout with Lockjaw present, but not the Q!

    Way to work guys
    Enjoyed the run EF and Swiper !
    See y’all in the gloom…

  2. Great start to the summer tour, first time up Mt. Henrico, thanks to Saab for keeping us on the right path. Who knows where Faceplant would have taken us? Hopefully I’ll make it back to Spider Run a couple times this summer, enjoyed the pace this morning.

  3. Today feels victorious. Pushed through what I expected to be a miserable run, and more importantly made not one wrong turn. Not sure I can say I’ve done that on this route ever.

  4. Were it not for the dubious route instructions I would have happily let Rosie and Faceplant take off and leave me to a leisurely run.

  5. My first Mt Henrico was a good time.

    When I drove home I noticed a dead goose near the Lakewood turn off in the middle of the road. Careless driver or the pack of 6 milers not willing to slow the pace on the return route? The other geese are not coming forward as eye witnesses, but Saab, Rosie, and Faceplant know the truth.
