Today’s installment of Currahee was good BRR prep, but no one attending today is attending BRR ’24. We hit the hills of Westhoe nonetheless. After deciding against New Prescott, we headed down Old Prescott, turned onto Glen Eagles (hit all the cul-de-sacs on the left after Oakhampton), left on John Ralph, left on Ridgefield, jumped back on Old Prescott and rode it all the way BTTF. A work friend of Posh joined us today, without Posh. Impressive first post: running AO, on a humid day, without the gent that EH’ed him. This FNG is from Pittsburgh and a Steelers fan.…

30 lives started to wake up this morning to run the famous Contra route of Currahee. The threat of rain and a Ghost Flag take over in SOJ quickly took out most of the lives, but the core crew remained and was able to defeat the Boss. Not really much to write about in a Running AO. We ran.. then we turned at the corner and ran some more. Mr. Rogers and Wally demonstrated the laws of physics on how when one force runs into an immovable object results in an explosive immediate stop. Handshake asked for prayers of wisdom…

Against better judgement, YHC brought back a route from a few months ago that was pretty awful even in cool temps. Here’s where: The Route R on Pump R on Ridgefield R on Raintree R on Cherrywood L on Cedarbluff L on Waltham Bear R to stay on Waltham Continue on Clearwood L on Gayton L on Gayton again R on Raintree L on Maremont or Falconbridge/Hickoryridge and back to the Shovel Flag Numberama, Nameorama, COT MOLESKIN That route in 100% humidity 100% sucks. That is all. Next time Gypsy can have it. ANNOUNCEMENTS Prayers for Lab Rat’s daughter’s boyfriend…

Today’s edition of Currahee called for a bro Code run. Everyone wore yellow except for Doozy. Then everyone ran the bro Code route except for Doozy. But when a HIM takes the lead (for those that don’t know, Doozy runs like the dang wind yall), he pushes everyone to new heights. The entire crew pushed past our turn at Copperas, caught up to Doozy and ran behind Gayton ES, continued on through the mean streets of the FWE (mostly Poplar Forest Dr.), taking a left on Ridgefield and back to the Tamper Flag. Pigskin hung back at Godwin HS to…

6 quarter horses trotted up to the paddock for the latest edition of Currahee. Conditions remained constant at 70 and sunny. According to the guy shooting hoops at Godwin, the following might have happened. Route(s): Part A: Right on Pump. Left immediately onto Old Prescott. Run to the end of the Cul-de-Sac and back to the VSF. Part B: Run to the trail at the back middle of Godwin HS (up the steps). Exit onto Maremont. Immediate left onto Willowick. Right on Avenham. Right on Raintree. Left on Maremont (which loops around to Raintree). Right on Raintree. Left on Maremont…

90% of the 8 men that made it to Curahee this morning assumed that YHC would be the SOJ rep to Q the run and they were correct. It was pointed out that if you are a regular at that AO, you technically shouldn’t be allowed to Q it as a takeover. 5:30 lets roll, Right on Pump, left to Dunkin, Right on Glen Eagles and up the big hill YHC had no real plan except that I wanted to start with that hill. After some discussion with Mr Rogers and Light House about what could be added to the…

It is finally light enough in the morning to hit the trails. So that is what we did. There were warnings that the trail would be under water. I scoffed at the notion and off we went. I was right. Trail was filled with the normal root obstacles but no water. The first group down the trail ended up taking the long way through the condo complex at the end while the second group, led by Gypsy, took a short cut and ended up in the lead. We all met up on Cox and made our way back before the…

Perfect morning for a run. We gathered to put in the Miles today in preparation pools and beaches. Last Friday of the month is Bro-code run, we try and stick together as a group and circle back regularly to pick up anyone who is following at a different pace. Doozy managed to get himself lost(again) and lighthouse and Mr. Rogers went on recon to bring him back to the flag. Mumble chatter along the way was conversation about kids in college and exploration overseas; as Upchuck daughter will be headed to London in the fall for her freshman year college.…

Get your Body Glide for Her, it’s chafing season. Here’s where it occurred, other than my groin: The Route L on Pump L on Sancrest L on Windingridge and continue on Hickoryridge L on Falconbridge R on Raintree Circle the lake behind the Swim and Racquet Club L on Raintree R on Tingewood to dead end and reverso back to L on Raintree L on Maremont Circle Godwin (optional) Back to VSF Numberama, Nameorama, COT MOLESKIN Rip your sleeves off and put the guns on display.  As the great Nelly once said, it’s getting Hot in Herre.  Summer is a…

Here’s where most ran: The Route R on Pump L on Old Prescott R on Glen Eagles R on Bridgehaven L on Burnside L on Pump R on Thistledown L on Cox to tip and reverso R on Ridgefield L on Raintree L and circle Maremont Cir twice L on Raintree R on Windbluff R on Willowick L on path to Godwin to SF Numberama, Nameorama, COT MOLESKIN Lots of mumblechatter pertaining to streaking, Cox, and tool mishaps. Some of the Pax circled the tip of the Cox…
