A PAX of 3 assembled at BWES for a River Run beatdown that went something like this THANG: River Run OG in reverse so we could catch the sunrise as the PAX descended into Tarrington. Bullseye met us on his bike shortly after the Twin Team ascent. Corned Beef measured 4.25 miles total. YHC thinks it felt like more. Lots of topography. Naked Moleskin Cheers to Slumlord for hitting up Bullseye and YHC Sunday evening to see who was running. YHC surely would have fartsacked otherwise…and then our Mechanicsville visitor would have been on his own. Cheers to Corned Beef…

Solo post at River Run. Went down to the trails by the river. Got turned around and headed back past Weaver to run up Twin Team. Back around the school and lot to round out 45 minutes. 4.20 miles When running solo in trails you catch all the spiders. I run faster in a group. Kids late for rowing drive fast. Prayers for Helix’s daughter and family. Shakedown

Solo post at River Run this morning. I waited an extra minute and then headed for the trails down by the river. Got turned around and ran back past the car, up Twin Team and then back around the school and parking lot to finish out the 45 minutes and 4.20 miles. I run faster with a group and when I know where I am going. Kids late for rowing drive really fast The river trails are kind of spooky in the foggy dawn. Prayers for Helix’s daughter. Peace fellas – see y’all tomorrow. Can’t add QIC, Date, Pax.. somehow…

8 men posted to River Run, including to summer tourists (one returning to his homeland). The tourists may have been looking for hills, but YHC had something different in store. Given the abundance of light and the long-debated trail route, YHC decided it was time to make it a reality. The route was down to the Riverfront, then left onto the trailhead – follow the WHITE blazes as much as possible for a 1.5 mile loop. The goal was 2 loops and back to the flag for about 5 miles. All returned to the Flag. Some did 2 loops, some…

3 SOJ vets and a summer tourist hit the mean streets of northwestern Chesterfield County for a ride on the roller coaster. Around the school, down Robious, into River Downs, up Queens Grant hill and back toward Gumbo’s abode. Cut through into Cross Creek added for close to 3 miles out and reverso. Phonics informed YHC that he would be visiting RiverRun today and since he had experienced Twin Team before we showed him what the roller coaster is all about. This is a one of a kind ride that hits some good hills on the out and the back.…

Nine took advantage of a break in the weather to kick off today’s edition of River Run between rain showers. Conditions were 70 and sunny. Route: James River to the James River. Run the loop. Left on Riverton Ridge, left on Welby, right on Sherfield, left on Ashwell, left on Ashwell again, cross Robious, and right on Powderham to Twin Team down the hill to James River Road and BWES. 5.1 for those who didn’t loop around. Lug Nut and Bleeder ran the 4 mile route. NMS: Doozy shot out like a cannon today. Unfortunately, the concussion caused a massive…

2 River Run regulars posted on this most excellent morning for running. Others were likely out traveling for the Summer Tour. No Q, No Worries. Doozy decided to face his foe and conquer the curb that took him out a few months ago. So, around by the high school and then west on Robious towards 288 and “the bridge” we went. This time we ran past the bridge and the end of the sidewalk almost all the way to 288 for 2.5 out and 2.5 back. Great pace, great weather, great conversation and fellowship. Thanks Doozy! No More Gumbo For…
