5 of the usual suspects arrived in the gloom with a little drizzle to find no one with a plan on where to go and only one Game of Thrones fan looking for someone to talk to. Bullseye suggested the Twin Team to Brigstock out 23 back 22 route and off we went. Mileage varied but all made it back on time, the Twin Team start and finish makes the negative split much easier than most. YHC can’t confirm but Orange Crush was so ready to discuss and disappointed no one watched Game of Thrones that I expect he gave…

5 River Run Regulars posted in the post-storm gloom to see what neighborhood or hill we would be conquering this morning, but YHC had a different kind of challenge in mind, it being Tax Day and all. Mosey down to the track to pay the piper. 4 laps around the track followed by the 15-burpee tax. Repeato as many times as you can until 0605, then we moseyed back to the SF via the extended route and paid one last marginal tax – 5 burpees. COT, Number-Rama, Name-a-Rama and YHC took us out. Announcements: Don Draper VQ at The Forge…

7 SOJ Front Men arrived to enjoy a spring morning run knowing today would be long with a 2120 Tipoff in store. Route=Tarrington Run and circle JRHS and back to the flag! Number-ama, Name-r-ama, Announcements: Old Glory at No Toll tomorrow to celebrate all those we have lost and a need to honor them! Prayers for YHC and his M. YHC took us out! NMS: Rosie and Gumbo having been logging miles so easy pace this morning. Doozy was out leading the pack but Rosie tracked him down on THE HILL! Bullseye, Orange Crush, and Lug Nut=solid pace and run…

Spring Break and the cold weather seems to have kept a few of the regular RiverRunners away for the morning. The three that made it discussed YHC’s original plans to do some hill repeats but decided to wait for another day with more PAX to get that done. A flatter yet still repetitive route was chosen, the River loop. Down into the park around the loop and back to the school loop – repeato until 0615. 1 loop is slightly less than 2 miles. Some extra or adjustment here and there to get the time to work out right Great…

7 men enjoyed perfect conditions this morning for some miles. 6 River Run regulars and a Swiper sighting. No Q on the sheet – no problem, but when the decision was left to YHC the call was easy (if unpopular)…River Downs Roller Coaster – to YHC’s house and back with a couple of gut-punch hills in between. Rosie and Swiper cleared the path for the rest of the PAX – someone had to keep Swiper on the route and Rosie dutifully stepped up to the task. YHC, Doozy and Orange Crush took turns pushing and pulling each other — much…

6 River Run regulars posted this morning to run off the green beer and start the week right. No Q, no route, no problem… Consensus was up Twin Team, right on Brigstock, out 23, back in 22…YHC asked for a loop around by the high school first to “build momentum” for Twin Team (i.e., delay the pain)…and off we went. Twin Team never disappoints. In fact, it kicks you in the gut and lets you know the weekend is over real quick. Great running with Orange Crush – strong partner work as we each took turns pulling and being pulled.…

8 runners stood around in the gloom at 0529 wondering which way to go. No one had a specific plan so we decided on old faithful. Tarrington Loop and around the school to finish. Radar was concerned about not having run much recently so he turned back early. Gumbo and Doozy coming off illnesses were steady through the hills. Orange Crush is an SOJ regular with neighbor Bullseye now. Wedding Singer has not done that hill in a while and said he could tell. The real story is Lugnut who has been absolutely crushing it, check Big Data from 2/1/19…

7 SOJ studs didn’t let last night’s downpour keep them from logging some miles this morning. Admittedly, Doozy had better ideas for what to do with his morning but he shook off the doubt and posted anyway (and CRUSHED it). 0527 and YHC called out the Rollercoaster, which brought delight to those who know the route…Slumlord and Orange Crush were in for a treat. Off we went. Hang a left out of the parking lot toward the High School and around to Robious Road. West on the sidewalk to the new traffic light and left onto River Downs South. Second…

9 southern gentlemen emerged into the dry gloom for a Q-less run. Lugut said we should go that way, pointing out of the parking lot, and we all agreed. He proceeded to describe a route that he had been looking at but toward the end of the description added the disclaimer that he didn’t know how long it was. The route described was up Twin Team, down the Powderham access road then down Robious Road to Corner Rock, loop through Roxshire and back to Salisbury, Robious and Tarrington. This being a portion of a route YHC regularly runs there was…
