A sweet 16 embraced cooler temperatures and a soggy road to pre-emptively burn off some Halloween calories. Off we went north on Commonwealth turning right on Broad. Left on Roseneath. 4s turned around a Veil and took a scenic run down Roseneath to Grove and back to the flag. 5s and 6s continued on in Scott Addition, turning right on Norfolk and a right on the Blvd. 5s take the Blvd to Grove and home. 6s turn left on Broad and a right on Strawberry to Grove and home. eHarmony took us out.

Bunch of warriors came out and exercised. Early runners with Bone Thugs putting in just shy of 8, late runners getting some reverse Carillon with a twist start error by the Q but all worked out well, and the cyclists did some longs and shorts as well. Great job men! Got to run but getting in big data before I close the computer for the day. Thanks to Bodos for the title.

20 riders and runners spun their way up-and-back on Grove for the First Annual, First Inaugural, First Ever, un-proctored, not-yet-certified, wind-assisted (so unofficial) Yo-Yo Run. Weather was sunny and 70. The clock struck 05:30 and the PAX were on their way. Route: From MM, run west on Grove to Lexington-Albemarle. Take a left (toward Cary) and run the loop around Lexington-Albemarle, returning to Grove. Right onto Grove and return to Mary Munford. Right onto Westmoreland (at the traffic light). Left onto the gravel trail at Mary Munford, except for anyone who has been told to avoid trail runs. PAX ran…

Come one, come all to RAMM tomorrow. If you have a yo-yo holster, bring it. Much yo-yo-ing shall be done. Route: From MM, run west on Grove to Lexington-Albemarle.

17ish PAX departed from Mary for their various sets of exercise. YHC offered up a Lab Rat special – Serpentine.

A lucky 13 converged for some mileage in the Fan. It was great to see everyone and catch up. Weather was perfect this morning for running. Labrat took us out. TYA has a CSAUP coming up with more information available soon via preblast. October 23 relay race from Richmond to Jamestown and back. Run teams, bike teams, and run/bike teams. YHC recommends a canoe/kayak option as well. The Routes East on Grove and a right on Thompson, left on Floyd. Take a left on Shields with 4s taking a left on Grove back to the flag. 5s/6s continue north on…

An unknown number of underlings did their thing this morning, either on their own or with a group. The main thang was a big loop while running with old glory to show respect for the tragedies of 19 years ago. North on Westmorland. East on Monument. 4s turn right at Boulevard. 5s turn right at Allison. 6s turn right somewhere around Stuart. All work our way back on Grove. MoleskinGreat work to a great crew this AM. Thanks to Faceplant and Marv for sharing carrying duties today. As was noted, YHC took the first and last leg and claimed all…

A smooth 20 hit various runs and cycling routes to kickoff the holiday weekend. Runners: Commonwealth north to Monument, head east. 4s turn at Arthur Ashe, 5s at or around Strawberry, and 6s can go F yourself, head back on Grove. Just kidding I don’t think there were any 6s today except GP who I believe ran with the 5s. Cyclists did their thing. Heard the Potterfield Bridge was included per Pullout. Long run – 8ish via Carillon route. Great job men! Apparently Bodos and the 5s were attacked by a rat who was confused by the speed at which…

Early in the gloom, the few runners we had just stood around looking at each other, so I asked the question: “Who’s Q?” More stares. Somebody threw out Reverse Carrilon, so that’s the route. Bleeder explained the route, which sounded good to me. Bodos said he knew the 5 miler, but Swiper did not have confidence. He came back to me twice with where do we turn questions, so looks like Im running with the 5’s! So this begs the question, how do you go from not wanting to get up, to running slow and comfortable, to running faster and…

39 studs posted for a morning of accomplishment and celebration. Most on foot, some on wheels. Running route was the old school route 10k, nice and simple. Launch times ranged from 5:00 am to 5:30 am. NMM: A few random thoughts while running this morning. 1. I was inspired by how many PAX came out to support and to run with BoneThugs. His entourage was more like 20 folks running along side and with him. With 20 others joining at the end for an inspirational finish. Pretty awesome to watch. 2. Some of you are going to hate this, but….what…
