Four warriors stuck to the roads in a misty humid morning run. We ran the north route to Pottersfield and then South along Riverside. Bro code style for 7.5m. Welcome to FNG Boomerang. Boomerang comes to us from a Flying Head Lock from who we think was either, Bootleg, Lugnut, or maybe Upchuck – time will tell. Born in Richmond, Boomerang moved up yonder a piece where he ran the 800m in track. He regaled us with many “real history of Richmond” pieces in a way that rivals Ken Burns – his runner (heh) up F3 Name. Now that he…

Trails were still muddy proven by some early warriors, so we hit the access road. Some did more than others, all did good stuff. Lab Rat apologizes..

With most of F3’s faithful unable to shake off the fart sack from too much basketball and beer, 3 noble warriors bucked the trend for some punishment on RVA’s finest trails. With no one sure who had the Q and the clock hitting 7am, the PAX took off across the Boulevard Bridge for a 6-7 mile route following the Buttermilk and North Bank trails. Name-a-rama. YHC took us out in prayer. NMS. It was great running with Tonka and Flipper as I got to know these 2 great dudes much better. Our conversation ran the gamut from the differences between…

3 pax opted to spend their Sunday morning enjoying a peaceful run on the trails. The route was North Bank across Belle Isle and Buttermilk including the Lariat. 7.0 miles were run, numerous topics discussed. Perfect. Lab Rat Apologizes…

A lucky 7 showed up for the first TRAILZZZZ DAY we have had in a while. We all took full advantage of the dry trails by doing whatever we wanted. Lug Nut busted down the OG Loop, while TYA came in and went right back out for another. The rest of the pax enjoyed Forest Hill. Title comes from running in front of then behind then in front of then behind, etc. Sally on the bridge coming back across. Finally, Offshore said enough is enough and sit/stayed long enough to get me across. Beautiful morning for the trails again, they…

6 soldiers ignored the time change and posted on the first time of EDT DST. The Thang. Over the river and up the hill, left on riverside drive to the T. Pottersfield bridge, up the hill and back to the pump house. NMM Two groups of folks stayed relatively together today. Upchuck, Labrat, Shakedown and Gomer Pyle were in the lead group. Lug Nut and TYA made sure the six was taken care of. Perfect temp for a run this morning, cool but not cold. Lug Nut is on a roll. He had a steady, strong pace throughout and then…

9 humans and one canine posted on a beautiful Sunday morning at the Pump House parking lot. Route was over the bridge, east on the access road, loop around Belle Island, and back the access road. NMM: Lug Nut is killing it. That dude has been rocking out the runs and losing the LB’s. He is getting slimmer and faster by the day. If you want to piss Lab Rat off, just tell hime you are going to run on the trails when they are wet. Seriously, he will get pissed. More importantly, he is right about not running on…

Eight humans and one k-9 posted for Vinny’s one year F3 RVA anniversary celebration and ode to our great Commonwealth. Away we went. Up Pumphouse Road over to Robinson St. via the VITA course. Right on Cary St. Left on Meadown. Right on Monument/Franklin down to the Capital Building. Rocky style up to the top of the Portico steps – take it all in, collect the six. Return via Main to Meadow. 8.6 miles in total. Announcements: Slurpee has Breaking Bread tonight and could use some help. NMS: Today was a great day for a run, and it was an…

Five Ruckers, two runners, and a sweet dog named Sally met at the trail head but didn’t hit the trails. Furley and Saab ran (first time YHC has ever seen that guy in a shirt – it was a tiger face tank top – sweet). Not sure how far they went but The Ruckers went south, down Riverside, 10 merkins at TPot, simulated casualty situation with Sally across the bridge, over to Browns, then to and around Belle, access road back to Nickel Bridge 8.4 for most 9.2 for TYA who was doing extra credit. Sign up for the growruck…

Six showed up to run the trails on a beautiful frozen Sunday. Furley and Gong Show paired up and found a rhythm that nobody was keeping up with, so we set them loose to tackle Forest Hill. Offshore and Lab Rat teamed up with Lug Nut to do 4.5 miles, turning back at Reedy Creek and throwing in a few spurs to get the distance up a little. Upchuck was testing out the legs and wisely did not push his luck. ET’s was lively as well, even if it were just Upchuck and Lab Rat. Conversation did not lag. Lab…
