While spending the weekend with my parents at my home growing up in Roanoke, I decided to hit up F3. I got there about 45 minutes early and got about a 3 mile run in. When I got back at 625 am, I found several cars with F3 stickers, and a flag planted in the ground. But no PAX! Had I gotten the wrong time from the website? I thought maybe they were just doing a prerun like we do at Rock and Roll, but it was about 2 minutes from start time and no one was in sight. I…

One intrepid soul launched at Cinco for Cinco in the latest edition of The Clinic. Conditions were 70 and sunny. According to the dude outside YHC’s office (pictured), the following miracle(s) happened: YHC ran 5 miles, maybe a bit more. Number, name, and YHC said a quick word of thanks.

Previous characters have included an actual impaired person (Anne), a machine tool-curling Jamaican (Omar), large lizards, a person impersonating a police officer, a variety of spike-heel wearing women of…

One PAX scraped out of The Fart Sack and launched in F3RVA’s earliest, least Richmond-based, Downrange run. Conditions remained 70 and sunny. According to the man walking – and appearing quite sober and well dressed – with a bottle in a brown bag, the following quite possibly happened: Broward route. Out 2.5. Back 2.5. Been there, done that, got the t-shirt. Number, name, YHC took himself out. NMS: really, at 5:20? Wow. Would love to know the circumstances. Dude was dressed nicely, in an apartment and condo saturated area with no retail…and carrying a brown bag with a bottle at…

One PAX tossed aside the Charybdis that is the Fart Sack and launched another edition of The Clinic. Conditions remained 70 and sunny. According to the gentleman cleaning the beachside sidewalk, the following may possibly have happened: Solo-ga: it’s Wednesday, so we stretch. Neck, shoulders, torso, hips, thighs, shins, ankles. Next up, beach run. Sandy. But, not cold. And, not wet. And, not easy on the legs. Call it 3 miles. Maybe more. Dunno. And, pretty sure YHC just thankful for the opportunity. Name, number, and shared a brief appreciation for good health and a great day with the guy…

One hit the roads for the sloppiest, wettest run in some time. That said, conditions remained 70 and sunny. According to the fish swimming in the street, the following might have happened: Today was a day for turkey trotting. YHC woke up early and by accident. Launch time moved to 4:00 a.m. Normal route to Broward on the way out. Run included substantially flooded roads, especially the mall parking lot (3-4 inches!). YHC detoured on the way back to add a loop around the office park and another loop around the lake. Somewhere north of 6, or enough for this…

One pax joined on the shores of the Pacific Ocean for his favorite version of The Clinic each year. Temperatures in the air were 70 and sunny. Ocean water slightly warmer at 63 (actual air temp 48).
