Always 70 and Sunny
Always 70 and Sunny

We’re going to go to Home Depot. Yeah, buy some wallpaper, maybe get some flooring, stuff like that. Maybe Bed, Bath, & Beyond, I don’t know, I don’t know if we’ll have enough time.


Pax met on a less humid morning for my first turn at the helm at Currahee (what’s a Currahee anyways?)

Mumbling commenced before we started. Gomer, always the overachiever, started handing out maps before realizing I had signed up.

We instead took the route of my simple but effective “Target Run”. Short Pump natives know it well!

Depart from AO headed North on Pump (which becomes John Rolfe)

4 milers turn around at Liesfield Parkway, just before Broad

5 milers run across Broad to the front door of Target, continue to Hobby Lobby (of course!) before turning South to square off the quintessential Short Pump shopping trip, returning South on John Rolfe / Pump to the AO.

We didn’t have any 6 milers but I’m sure they could find more big box stores to visit if we ever want to repeat!

The course made for a somewhat mindless, gently rolling course, compared to the West End neighborhood tours Gomer prints up for us weekly (although I appreciate those in their own right!!)

Light traffic these days makes this fun for me, although my shin splints wouldn’t enjoy this as much running on sidewalks.

No announcements, at least none I remember specifically..
As a nod to his more creative trip-planning skills, I asked Gomer took us out. He obliged with a well-said word!

Sorry for the posting delay, guys – was planning to pop this up first day of vacation but my 6 year old broke his arm within 4 hours of our arrival!!
Never knew someone made waterproof vacuum sealed cast covers before now! (Check out https://drycorp.com – pretty slick)
