Four warriors beat the warmth of the fartsack to go on a little run in perfect temperatures. Two routes today 4 and 5 mile. Pump to Three Chopt and back. YHC took us out. Prayers for healing. NMS – Not much to report today. Pinto recommends “Cant hurt me” by David Goggins. Intestinal fortitude is for winners. Currahee!

Four men escaped the clutches of the ravenous counteroffer and stepped fearlessly into the gloom on a cool day. Not all were so lucky… or were they? Route was the “regular” route: Raintree, Falconbridge, around DRP, north on Cox to Brookmont, around Crowncrest to Pump and return. 5.5 miles as depicted below. Some ran in other directions. Pinto took us out. NMS – some discussion about impact of covid and recent issues on our lives and those around us. We were glad to welcome Johnsonville to his first Currahee! For Christians, this is an important day of remembrance that in…

Three stallions emerged in the gloom to enjoy some moist air and Wet Asphalt Pavement. The route card shows 5 miles and since we were feeling good, the PAX did not disappoint – pushing to 5.9 total with a bonus trip around the Wellesley lake. YHC took us out. NMS – we are thankful when we for muffin melting weather. Given the steady win and gusts, it was difficult to hear mumble chatter. Most of the run featured the rhythmic slap slap slap sound of running shoes landing on wet pavement, punctuated by the occasional gutteral surprise upon footfalls landing…

I love the smell of mulch in the morning… Three thoroughbreds broke through a bona-fide gloom for a journey into the back nine of West Broad Village retail. One mile out, four triple checks = one mile, one mile back. 3 miles total. Golf Galaxy TC1 – dips & LBC; REI TC2 – chicken peckers & mountain climbers; Home Goods TC3 – Jump Squats & Vee Up; Diamonds Direct TC 4 – Merkins & APD. Pinto took us out. NMS – good discussion of the economy and university impacts. WBV has a metric ton of mulch in a pile and…

Getting back at it for a weekly running after taking off a few months is never fun… but when you are meeting up with your crew it makes it at least tolerable. Accountability to meet someone else at 530 AM is a driving force for many of us to get out of bed in the morning. (unless its below 42 and raining then you are just crazy). ACCOUNTABILITY (Q2.5) – F3 NationRunning AOs can be more difficult to plan than the standard bootcamp. Trying to find a route that will allow for all to push themselves but at the same…

Five fearless warriors look through the gloom and eschewed the fart sack to join together for a run. 5mi route – Pump, Church to Gayton Elementary, through Pine Run and return on Ridgefield. Prayers for Pinto’s M as her family works through the death of her father. NMS. Not much to report today, we were all focused on getting our fitness to a rudimentary improved state in time for beach week. YHC does not mind the cold but we are all ready for the spring warm up. It is nice to have Light in the sky as we finish our…

Six descended on Currahee for a fourth Friday bro code run. Was this the last 30F run of the year? Prayers for Choppa (Gypsy 2.0) as he goes through some apprehension building post Covid testing. NMS – Sensitive feelings were hurt when the gentlemen worthy of so much respect poked fun at the thoughtfully designed route – like a title bout with Mike Tyson, so many solid blows delivered at the onset. Despite working really hard to get the route to be exactly 4 miles to respond to the feedback and preferences of the customer base, YHC will be sure…

4 mile route. Track warmup and neighborhood loop. NMS – Andy Jenks was not available for a rap video and its easy to harbor confusion on whether we would work today. Was it a test? You decide. Consider: This is the first day of the rest of your life… Was the weather hyped up? What isnt these days? In a world of ready to reuse recorded forever comments and layers of lawyers, of course VDOT needs to say “stay off the roads” and Chik-fil-A need to announce a delayed opening. Did it look bad? From the window maybe. Cars had…

After a quick roll call last night it appeared 5-6 would be posting for Currahee but in the end it was 3. YHC had planned to Fartsack due to a busy week and having to work this weekend, but after waking up at 0400 wide awake YHC thought otherwise. Pinto confirmed he was going to be there, but Lighthouse rolled in with 4 minutes to spare. When YHC commented amount not knowing he was coming since he didn’t respond Lighthouse said, “I didn’t know what to say, you guys talk too much” or something along those lines. Regardless The Figure…

6 men without excuses wanting to better themselves met in the gloom and get a little wet on a warmer than normal winter day. We did the Canterbury route which seemed a bit harder today than in the past – its a good mix of hills and with all the turns, tough to plan out to get exact but we will figure it out. Handshake took us out. started watch late NMS – Much discussion about excuses. Some may be anticipating some scathing remarks similar to those made in the moment yesterday morning, but on reflection YHC wants to take…
