No Time for Kids, Have to Study Routes


Twenty-two on the 22nd launched at different times but all convened generally at once for today’s Turkey Trot themed Spider Run. After watching three groups launch at different times, the final group launched for:

The Route


  • HDHH tonight @ Hardywood West Creek @ 5:00PM
  • TYA led history lesson Thursday from 6:00AM – 7:00AM @ Mary
  • TYA led loops Friday from 7:00AM – whenever @ Shelter 1 of Forest Hill Park
  • Fun CSAUPs coming soon, be on the lookout
  • Mustaches and sorts at Dogpile on 12/3
  • Join the Slack community for communications and friendly bantering

Numbers, names, YHC took us out.


The title of the backblast is courtesy Bone Thugs. Apparently making sure he didn’t get lost was more important that paying attention to his kid last night. Now you know the route for next year!

Clearly everyone loved the route and my newfound obsession with making sure it reoccurs every year (regardless of what the local running club decides to do). TYA expressed his gratitude for a route that passes the start three times.

A few PAX members took the blue lights instead of the first path by the lake. Either way you should have gotten the same result. Up the hill followed by down the hill.

Six peaks by my count. Kind of makes you feel good. Kudos to Florence for completing his longest run to date?! Great work.

Today I give thanks to each and every one of you. To those that traveled extreme distances at 430am just to partake in this event today. To those that have been a part of this group for a long time and offer memories of the fun times throughout the years. To new newer PAX for offering an opportunity to get to know you. To those that I have not met yet but are a part of our greater RVA PAX and that I can’t wait to meet at an AO soon. This very organic group we have is quite special, let’s keep it that way.
