Two freedom loving warriors made a choice without force or coercion to greet the dawn of a new day. The internal calling to improve oneself was so great no incentive, lottery or external prize was needed. According to the Amelia County Historical Society, it went a little something like this. Start at the courthouse and mosey around downtown to the public soccer field. This soccer field was to No Toll as road kill is to filet minon. COP SSH, IW, DQ, WWII, FB, Merkin X 20 Country Mile: Follow the approximately 1/2 mile loop and complete one burpee at each…

3 suburban warriors showed for the 5:15 WaThoHuk (Or as I prefer, WTH!) pre-run of 1.7 miles. West on Three Chopt, North on John Rolfe. East into West Broad Village (WBV), round the lake and reverse route back to the flag. We picked up another 4 passengers, for a total of 7 brave souls, and departed into the gloom. The Thang: Quick warm up waiting for Don Draper: SSH x10; Merkin x15; LBC x25 Mr. Draper, as it turns out, drove all the way to Short Pump, but realized when exiting 288 he had FORGOTTEN HIS SHOES. 😐 Not gonna…

2 Richmond pax met up on a cool morning for a nice Easy run. 4 miles total. NMS – seeking to recover a bit from IPC the pax decided an easy run was the way to go. Little vehicle traffic but we found the start of a large running training team and also a kettlebell workout. Somewhere out here is where we need another AO. Discussion on avoiding false gods and reminders to model personal responsibility; refrain from blaming others. Take action that impacts others positively. Get some.
