Most of the BRR team met last night to discuss last minute details and talk about the race. Pre-run at Hillcrest with a little bit of rain along the way. Refreshements were had, beers were drunk, and routes were dispersed. One week out from launch. Almost Christmas boys. TYA OUT

Seven or so stuck their heads into the oven of life, Hillcrest-style, for the latest edition of The Roller Coaster. Temps were sunny and 70. According to the retirees observing our every move, this is more or less what happened: Route: Hill repeats. 2 or 3 times per hill. Hillwood x2 or 3, Old Orchard x2 or 3, Charmian x2, Pocahontas x2, and THEN the big ones. 2 times up and down West Hillcrest. 2 times up and down East Hillcrest. Pick one of the Hillcrest downhill legs and run full speed downhill as well. The mileage doesn’t matter, but…

4 strong started at 5 for some hill repeats (Every hill in TYA’s neighborhood) 2 times up and back except for the biggest hill Charmian 3 times on that sucker – 5 miles ! 3 started at 5:30 and knocked some hills out – 3 miles ! It sure was a hot one way to work guys. TYA good call on the hill repeats that was tough…. Couple weeks out till BRR so – great training ! See y’all in the gloom…

10 or so PAX posted to run the hills around Casa Honeydo. Blazing hot and humid had most pax running shirtless which caused several west-end milfs driving their standard issue Tahoes to almost swerve off the road. Some did 2 loops, some 3, and a few more. A few smarter Pax avoided the run altogether and enjoyed the 2nd F. Afterwards ample quantities of Salsa, Sausuage dip, and beers were consumed although not in that order. Rumors that this would not qualify as a valid HDHH were quashed when Lockjaw appeared making it official. Lots of good 2nd F and…

9 strong posted for Roller coaster and it was a dang free for all…. Doublemint had to launch early but crushed some miles. Wedding Singer got an early jump on the hills as well – great to have you out there with us on a Wed night brother ! Burn out TYA Anthrax launched at 5 – BT and Swirly a few minutes after followed by Saabski and Bone Thugs finished us up. Beautiful night for a run the pax did between 4-7 miles – great work guys see ya next time – BRR is around the corner – keep…

Eight gluttons hurled forth into The Soup for the latest edition of the Roller Coaster. Temps were 70 and sunny. According to the 40-something mom zipping down West Hillcrest on a scooter, the following may or may not have happened: Route: Smorgasbord …one large, one medium, and one small. About 5 miles total. Announcements:Bone Thugs leading us to the Squirrels game on Saturday.August 10 – HDHH at Casa de HoneyDo. Hombres run at 5:00 p.m., then happy hour to follow. Those appearing at 6:00 p.m., wear your Wednesday “Vinny’s Best” seersucker suit, bow tie, and flip flops.BRR Prep day on…

6 dudes showed up. Temps were 70 and sunny. Here’s what happened: Hutton, Anthrax, TYA, and YHC set out on the Extra Long Loop. About 2/3rds through, Hutton and YHC picked up Swiper. Saab was around as well. Most did 5, some did about 5.5. Numbers, names, keeping Anthrax’s family in our prayers.Thugs arrived late; YHC knows Thugs pushed hard.NMS: Sweat flowed today. Way to work hard, fellas. Good to run with Hutton. Also, poison ivy is real.

EIGHT studs threw off the lure of the Nap Sack for the dripping sweaty goodness that was the latest edition of the Roller Coaster. Conditions were 70 and sunny. According to the old guys mowing lawns, the following quite possibly could have happened: Reverse extra large, then reverse medium. Total distance 5.8 miles. 7,000,000 vertical feet. Some guys did a smidge less. All were soaked and earned it today. Numbers, names, YHC took us out with a message about the value of this Brotherhood. NMS: The thermometer clocked at 96 when YHC left home. Unclear what the true temps were…

8 strong posted for roller coaster and here is how it went down. Medium loops to stay in the shade 5 miles. Well done guys the air was thick – that was a tough run but it prepares us for what is ahead – way to work! Hope you enjoyed those beers Upchuck we missed you out there – those pics you sent were torture …. See y’all in the gloom..

3 stallions trotted to the top of the Roller Coaster this evening. Conditions remained steady at sunny and 70. According to TYA’s almost-doppleganger, here’s what happened, more or less: Reverse medium loops x 3. Total distance just under 5 miles. Total elevation change approximately 2,000 feet. NMS: with temps near 100, naked moleskin isn’t far from the truth for the Shirtless Trio today. Brutal temps had speed as an afterthought. Slow and steady won the race today. Good to catch up for a bottle of hot tub temperature water afterwards.
