17 arrived for YHC’s favorite run that forces repeated climbs out of the U of R lake basin via designated roads (aka fingers). Some stuck with a few fingers, some went for the whole fist, and some took a finger that was in the entirely wrong place. Either way, it was a tough run and everyone performed their best.

14 warriors posted on a perfect July Morning. Relatively cool weather for this time or year. Route was up the hill, to St. Christoper Road, right on Patterson. 23 minute out, 22 minutes back. NMM Great weather for a run this time of year, humidity was down and it actually felt a little bit cool out there. Lug and YHC were chasing each other the entire way. Great to have someone to push you along when you want to take a little breather along the way. Thanks to Lug, I made it back to the flag in 21 and a…

12 Dog Park Lovers posted for a new kind of Spider Run in the peaceful gloom this morning. YHC wanted to change things up a bit (to Saab’s liking) and decided to get off the pavement for most of the route. The routes are as follows: Everyone exits campus via UR Drive, Campus Drive, Boatwright Drive to a left on Edgehill Rd to Bandy Field. 1.15 miles Run as many laps around Bandy Field as you wish. Each lap, if you stay on the trail and don’t cut corners, equals .7 miles Return to VSF as you came. 1.15 miles…

Moleskin: With the BRR coming this fall, YHC wanted to introduce a little hill work. While there may be some tweaking to come, I hope it proved to be somewhat of a challenge for…

Well, if you made this far into the backblast, the title must have caught your eye! 15 strong posted for a version of Splinter’s Countryside Lollipop ROUTE which felt great this morning in the 50 degree gloom. 0528 and the PAX were given instructions for the 4 and 5 miles routes.

Immediate right onto University. University across Westham and Ridge…

Days are getting longer and the Pax is converging earlier, trying to get a glimpse of the gloom. YHC called the route and off we went. A charming route up Boatwright, a stroll down Patterson, and the meandering curves of Westham Parkway. Each route distance had a different exit off of the Pwky with a return to the VSF. Swirly took us out. The Moleskin It was great to see the Pax today. Despite Labrat sans shoes and TYA shirtless and soaking, Swirly did a great COT. Quote of the circle was “I hope those are love handles that I…

Sixteen wandering Westhamers promptly departed from the Commons at 5:29, leaving behind at least 1 just-in-time PAX member to locate the crew.
