According to the campus police who saw a 55 year – no wait! – a 58 year old man hurriedly running to class with a text book under his arm, the workout today looked something like this. We launched and did the isomer arrangement of the snake river route. 4s to the fork, 5s did the left fork of the serpent’s tongue, and 6s did both forks. There was a rucking option too, complete with good conversation. YHC took us out.

Twelve misty eyed pavement pounders y un perro gathered in the gloom to hear what was in store today. Luckily, everyone either saw the routes posted or payed attention as no one go lost.

Thirteen on foot gathered for multiple purposes at today’s Spider Run. Most runners were fully aware of what was in store, and they still showed up. Some runners opted for rucking. Then there were walkers. If you chose the run portion, here’s what we did. The Route Slowsy as a group on the main road, crossing 1 bridge (sorry Upchuck), before convening on the far side of the intramural field. After a few trips across the turf at 60% and then 80%, instructions were given. Line drill intervals. Sprint across the turf to a predetermined position depending on your usual…

Twelve stallions of the new year started their running resolutions on the right foot. After Fudd recalibrated his internal compass based on the local beer shop as a reference point, off we went. Along the lake, across the parking lot and up Boatwright. Take Edgehill to Three Chopt and continue North. A left on Horsepen and a right on Normandy put us in new territory to be boldly explored. Upon Normandy’s intersection with Patterson, cross and veer right onto Sweetbriar. 4s take a left on Woodberry to Horsepen and through the fraternity gate to return to the lake. 5s and…

10 regulars arrived in various modes of transportation for a painful but spirited Spider Run. YHC posted the routes on slack, essentially 4s and 5s run up four different hills to Three Chopt and the 6s take one next 4 other hills, add a thumb with the bat cave and you’ve got yourself a Menorah run. Agreed, this makes no sense at all. But we ran a bunch of difficult hills and it was good. Fight me. Prayers to our brother Pucker and the Gorman family as they celebrates the life of his mother. Merry Christmas! There I said it!…
