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…

A combination of RAMMers, Gear-heads, and early risers tackled today’s iteration of RAMM. Only the RAMMers got to experience today’s long overdue interval plan.

Everyone goes north on Commonwealth and right on Monument and returns the same way. 15 minute warm up at a relatively easy pace15 minute pickups which includes 1 minute of fast pace followed by 30 seconds of recovery. 10 of these, reversing course after the 5th interval.15 minute cool down Numbers, names, YHC took us out.

Westbound and Down….22 Road Scholars are going to to do what Kubota said can’t be done. Kubota commented to YHC that Mary was tapped out of new routes. YHC found not one, but two new routes. One will be unveiled in a coming week, but here is the other. The Routes North on Westmoreland to Broad and head West. 4s turn left on Willow Lawn Drive, a left on Patterson, a right on Woodlawn, and a right on Grove back to the SF. 5s turn left on Libbie and left on Grove back to the SF. 6s turn left on…

20 warriors of The Gloom came to ride or run their way through the soup that was the latest edition of the Run/Ride at Mary Munford. Temps were sunny and 70 with stickiness. Routes: With the Stanley Cup Finals starting on Monday, YHC pulled the Hockey Stick Route out of the archives…east on Grove to Malvern (left) until each of the following…top of railroad bridge (4 milers), Saunders and Laburnum (5 milers), or right on Laburnum to AP Hill Statue (6 milers). Sippy and Phonics tore off to complete the 6 miles. A gaggle of runners, including Splinter, Saab, Offshore,…

Fifteen men from Richmond and the surrounding areas converged at Mary Munford to end the week the right way.   The Routes 6 Milers – MM down Grove to Henri to Campus Drive to UR Drive around the lake, up Ridgeway to Fairway to Robins to Iris to Stonehurst Green to St. Andrews Lane back to Grove to Mary Mumford. 5 Milers – The same except instead of running around the lake, they ran to Ridgeway.  It is also likely that they did not turn onto Stonehurst. 4 Milers – The same except possibly did not go all the way along…

Eighteen intrepid runners and peddlers descended upon Mary to traverse the inner and outer reaches of downtown RVA. As an ode to Lockjaw, YHC asked each group of runners (4, 5, 6’s) to choose their preferred LJ route. After some very brief deliberation among the groups, runners were off. Choices of Reverse-Carillon and Monument Avenue to Stuart Circle seemed to be the predominant choice. In a slight breach of protocol, some chose to go old school and traverse Grove Avenue…in the interest of better scenery. Announcements: Lab Rat is raising funds this month for his non-profit to support special needs…

20 seasoned running vets and Gearheads showed up to support BT’s RAMM VQ with a new route. Here’s how it went: THANG: West on Grove to Tuckahoe, over Cary and down Paxton. Loop back up Ampthill over Cary and down Roslyn. Continue over Grove to Patterson and hang a right. 4’s take Woodlawn to Grove and back to home base. 5’s take Hamilton to Grove and back, and 6’s detour through Stonewall Ct on the way to Lafayette, then right on Grove back home.
