Always 70 and Sunny

Browsing: Sunday Funday

One of the best things about F3 is that someone will always show up to workout. Today was no exception. One trail runner and two trail ruckers launched on time. After conversing with someone who had just finished a trail run and was inquiring about rucking, off we went. Word of advice: Watch the slick and icy parts of the trail. With a ruck on, the center of gravity is higher and can result in a nose dive into the trail. Coffee afterwards was awesome and the discussion was excellent!

Seven saw the dawn at the latest edition of Sunday Funday. Temperatures were 70 and sunny. According to the wave-less dog walker, the following might have happened. TYA – launch early, train hard, make progress. Saab – 6 or 9 on the roads Sippy, Offshore, Helix – full loop, Buttermilk to North Bank and back. UpChuck – out and back for four. Mr. Furley also made an appearance. Chest attire, per usual. Numbers, names, and general agreement on the beauty of the morning. ET’s continues to provide lessons in life and friendship as well as a living case study in…

Four young men assembled at the Pump House for a stroll through the woods – Anthrax, Helix, Shakedown, and YHC. On the way in this morning Anthrax got yelled at by his EZ Pass. The car in front of him made a last minute decision to move from an EZ Pass only lane to one where he could pay with change. This maneuver irked the EZ Pass in Anthrax’s vehicle so it made an audible alarm. I did not know they did that. Today’s route was Northbank to Buttermilk via Potterfield bridge for 6.8 trail miles. Shakedown started feeling under…

7 with 2 feet and 2 with 4 feet embarked on a journey of sorts. Whether running, walking, or running, trails were covered with great conversation! YHC took us out in an expedited manner and off to ETs we went where life was pondered.

Not it’s all around and then YHC had the Q. “Hey guys, my epi pen is in the first aid kit under the back seat in my truck, key around my neck – North to South and let’s go… I joked about a bro code run but then cut everyone free to do their own thing. The Pax revolted and said they’d keep me close after my announcement about the epi pen… really not necessary but much appreciated. With that in mind I kept up the pace out of guilt but it felt great. 6.5 miles (Northbank, Pottersfield, Buttermilk) at…

5 dudes, some shirted, some shirtless, took on the post-dawn Gloom. Temperatures were 70 and sunny with a dash of humidity. According to the goddess running with her pooch, the following might have happened: Route: North Bank to T-Pottersfield to Buttermilk. Some dudes did Belle Isle to railroad road. Numbers, names, and announcements at ETs. Announcements: Not many announcements except Pickleball and Convergence. NMS: Oral arguments focused on the Supreme Court. The panel was divided, with each party writing their own Opinions. Some lady showed up talking in country music song lyrics. She made the most sense of anyone.

It’s been too long since I have hit Sunday Funday, no better reason to come back than the SOJ takeover. 9 trail runners and 2 roadies hit the bridge a 0700 on a wonderful day for a run. It was great to catch up with Saab on the roads and give him some much needed company. Who knows what goes through his head all these weeks running alone? Trail runners went south to north. Summer is coming – little bits of humidity starting to creep in today. FNG Andre had to take off early so his naming will have to…

Eleven trailblazers took on the morning in the latest edition of Sunday Funday. Temperatures remained 70 and sunny. According to the dog runner who may (or may not) say hello to us, the following may have happened: Route: Bridge to Buttermilk to… …some, Reedy Creek and back, …some, Bridge to access road and back, …one, to T. Pottersfield, stop, wait, then North Bank, and, …one, run-about OYO, then meet Sippy, then BTTVSF. One walker, OYO. Plus, Sippy, mostly OYO, then with Saab. NMS: Sunday Funday is the definition of “You vs. You.” It’s about putting the work in. Push yourself;…

13 lucky lads and lassies launched at first light in the latest edition of Sunday Funday. Temperatures were 70 and sunny. According to the knuckleheads who park badly at the Pump House, the following route(s) likely happened. Start on the North Bank of the James River, at the North Bank Trailhead. Take that trail east, under the bridge. Regardless of any other choices, keep the river generally to your right; ensure that bears and dead bodies remain to your left. Oregon Hill can decide which applies. Turn right at the parking lot. Traverse the wavy bridge, turn right to stay…

10 gentlemen of leisure launched their loop at the latest edition of Sunday Funday. Temperatures were 70 and sunny.

Bring your opinions to share.
