17-18 Knights Templar cast aside superstition and embraced a run on Friday the 13th. Today was a dry brewery tour making our way into Scott’s Addition and seeing the sights. North on Commonwealth and East on Broad. Turn left on Roseneath. 4s turn around at Veil. 5s and 6s head up to Moore and go past Vassen to Blvd. Turning right on the Blvd, the 5s take it to Grove and home on Grove. 6s, turn right on Leigh, a left on Roseneath, and a left on Broad before turning right on Blvd again enabling them to check out Ardent…

That was definitely the theme of the day. Ten pax was more than I thought would show up on a BRR day that was supposed to be a total rainy mess (it wasnt). Also, Wedding Singer called the route for the 4 milers and it was “more than I thought”. Route called was Reverse Carillon. Sippy was the only sixer, but opted to slum it with the 5 milers. 4 milers did a choose your own adventure, with Hitch having more adventure than he bargained for with some GI issues. Pullout and No Tools honked the horns as they rode…

YHC took the Q based on everyone liking his route suggestion best. The instructions were simple: Head east on Grove: when you encounter a green light, go straight. If it’s red, turn left. If you hit a dead end, turn around. Keep an eye on the clock and head back to MM by 5:45. Moleskin. It was fun to hear where people ended up–most of us were running around the museum district. GP suggested we put a boundary square for the next iteration–seems like a good idea. We could add an instruction: turn left when you hit the boundary. It…

East on Grove with 4s doing an out and back at Meadow. 5s turn at Meadow to Monument, left on Monument, and a left on Westmoreland. 6s take Grove to Allen, to Monument, to Chantilly –>Bunting, and home on Grove. YHC took us out. Announcements: Convergence – Labor Day – 7:00 – TimberwolfPuppy Pile this weekend – 7:05Thoughts and prayers go out to Upgrade’s girlfriend. ABT, Lockjaw

Exhibit A: A number of PAX show up for workout at the appropriate time, but some of said PAX decide to do an alternate workout (e.g. play ultimate rather than run, or do a regular run rather than a speed workout). Said PAX rejoin the group at the end of the workout for the COT. Consequence: Said rebellious PAX (YHC included) do not get included in the PAX list or get Big Data credit (or perhaps receive an asterisk that could be removed with burpees). Exhibit B: A number of PAX “show up” at the workout location, but not at…

26 STRONG posted for a run or a ride this morning in the gloom. An amateur runner Q’d up the run and an amateur biker Q’d up the ride. After EF Hutton got in his early morning RAMM run, he gathered the bikers together to hit the streets for the second Amateur RAMM Gears for the summer. Several summer tourists checked this off of their list. Gumbo was dressed to impress which made Vinny proud. No Tools had an ugly blow-out. For it to happen during amateur hour was ironic. Swirly, Saab, TYA and Vinny got in the early long…

16 Road Runners and 1 Gearhead posted this morning to finish our work week in a glorious way. 5 supercharged runner started early for a little extra credit. Arriving to see BT all by his lonesome, we quickly asked “Who has the Q?” Remembering several old routes, just 4 and 5 mile routes till Marv posted. So at 0529, quick decision to take a stroll down Monument: Routes: Down Commonwealth to Monument. 4 milers down Monument to Arthur Ashe Boulevard and back. 5 milers down Monument to Strawberry St and back. Marv down to Stuart Circle and back. Extra credit…

Next Roller Coaster/HDHH is July 24 at Palani Drive at 6pm. Continue to pray for Helix’s daughter and several…

The fog was thick for this group of fourteen. Tropical levels of humidity and the relative silence of the day after a holiday was not a deterrent either. YHC called Reverse Carillon and off we went maintaining a bro code. About a mile and a half in, we came across the the 5am group who had a similar Carillon route in mind. YHC took us out. As I was driving down Cary on the way in, a robin deflected off of my windshield. My immediate thought was Handshake and the Saab extraction method. Fortunately, it was not needed. Announcements Shakedown’s…

A massive crowd of beach cruisers, dirt bikes, and steel framed roadies “older than me” descended upon Mary Munford this morning (38 in total). A couple ran, most rode. Directions were given to Wedding Singer, who was the most seasoned F3 vet at the time that there was in fact no runner Q and that they would be on their own for routes this morning. I laid out the route to the hoards of cyclists that we would be heading down to the Carillon in the safest way I could think of for a lap or two around the lake…
