Run around the back of Hanover High School, front of Oak Knoll Middle School, right on Old Landsdown Rd, right on Fort Meyers Rd, run until it ends, turn around run back, another right on Old Landsdown, left on Patrick Henry Blvd, reverse at 301 all the way to the end of Patrick Henry and back to the flag for a nice 4.7 miles.
YHC has had some challenges lately with getting lost on runs. Today was going to be different. The weather was great, legs were tired and going to an AO for the first time with new men is always a boost. Well, if there was a PAX at the AO this would have all been true. Leaving the homestead at 0430 for the 50 minutes trip to Tomato Run, YHC goes to the www.F3RVA.com site, clicks the link and follows Google Maps to what YHC believed to be the AO. YHC did notice the high school said Hanover High. That’s ok, I double check Google Maps and it shows I’m 350 feet from the location. Not being familiar with the schools from the suburbs this close to Washington DC YHC assumes Atlee & Hanover are same and searches for other members of the PAX, but to no avail.
Update: It looks like there may have been some sort of senior prank between Atlee & Hanover. It looks like YHC was the beneficiary and will have to catch the real Tomato Run another day!
