Always 70 and Sunny

Browsing: Sunday Funday

A gaggle of men, some topless and some clothed, hit the dirt slopes on Sunday. Temps continued to be flat at 70 and sunny. According to the really fast dude who went flying past YHC, the following likely happened: Route: South Bank (Buttermilk), optional lariat, T. Pottersfield Bridge, (meet Fire Elf), return to base via North Bank. NMS: YHC left at the end of the run. No idea what happened. Hopefully, Sippy Cup made it home on time. Announcements: F3RVA Retreat is Saturday. Bring your meat, your ball glove, your social skills, and your desire to defeat the Stache Brothers.…

Heck yeah! The route was counterclockwise, with a trip around the west end of Belle Isle. Pigskin turned back near the end of the spur – kind of an interesting spot to do so. PAX are looking forward to the BRR backblast!

10 gathered. 8 ran. 1 cooked. 1 rubbed his heal. Temps were sunny (for sure) and 70 (in all fairness, YHC didn’t check). According to the little fuzzy caterpillars all over the roads, this is what happened, more or less: Gather at Casa de Vinny & Co on Wendover. Run west and south, before returning north and east. Turn left, right, left, and left again. Find a lake. Circumnavigate that lake. Turn right and go to the railroad tracks. Do not cross the tracks. For that matter, never, ever cross Buford. Return up a big hill, take the trail to…

13 enlisted today for the latest edition of Sunday Funday. Temps continued to stay steady at 70 and sunny. According to the (perhaps nonexistent) people who snagged Shakedown’s keys, this is more or less what happened: Long Range Recon Patrol (TYA): 28 miles on the bike.Road Patrol (Saab, Faceplant): ~10 milesAdvanced Dismounted Element (Sippy Cup, Helix): ~6.8 on trails, including War Memorial Hills.Main Body – Element 1 (Rip Cord, Shakedown, Flatline, Anthrax, YHC): Buttermilk, T-Pot, North Bank, BTTVSF. Just under 6.8.Main Body – Element 2 (EF Hutton, Offshore): Same distance.Independent Action (Pigskin): 30 minutes out and back. Numbers, Names, Faceplant…

5 Regulars and 1 FNG posted on a Sunday morning for run on the trails (or roads). South side to north side was called. Faceplant took to the streets (missing saab). NMM YHC pulled into the parking lot to a pretty empty lot. Two cars, one parked in the normal location and one parking rather crooked in a weird spot. After YHC got ready for the run, the drive of the second car got out and asked if I was with F3. After introduction, he let me know that he had seen an article in Men’s Health about F3, looked…

Seven runners, 2 by road, 5 by dirt, grinded out 7-10 miles on a glorious 70 and sunny morning. Trails were great despite the previous days’ weather. ET’s followed with discussions of BRR and the PAX’s favorite movies. Saab and TYA can’t recommend the movie The Lobster enough.

8 men of steel linked arms and pounded the pavement and paths of RVA in the latest edition of Sunday Funday. Conditions were remarkably close to sunny and 70. According to the lone boxer at the trailhead, the following are likely to have happened: Cross the river to Riverside Drive (east), up and down to Belle Isle, and back along the access road, studiously avoiding soiling our “Sunday Best” shoes. Distances were anywhere from 4.4 for YHC doing a rehab gig to something in the 6-7 range for the more traditional runners. Saab may have done 10. Announcements: Vinny’s Field…

4 regulars posted for a slightly wet Sunday morning. Saab opted for the roads, the rest of the crew hit the access road and did and out and back to Belle Isle. A couple of hours at Elwood post workout. No swim today. 300,000 gallons of raw sewage seemed to impact the desirability or a dip in the river. Question is how long will it take for the river to be safe again. Only time will tell. Eat lots of Calamari. TYA OUT

7 studs posted for a run on a perfect July morning in RVA. Route was North to South, stop at the swimming hole for a dip in the river. Great morning for a run. Nip/Tuck from F3 New Orleans was in town for a couple days doing some college touring with his sons. Perfect morning to get up and hang with the F3 boys for a trail run and swim. When we got into the water, he thought we were going to cross the river on the water. Not the plan, but a great idea. We will have to do…
