Browsing: Sunday Funday

Four PAX launched at 7 for Buttermilk to Northbank. Others launched earlier for the loop plus Forest Hill. The PAX ran long enough for ET’s to open, and proceeded to take advantage.

4, probably 5, but definitely not 6, launched into the rain and gloom (real gloom, not F3 Gloom) for the latest edition of Sunday Funday. Conditions were sunny and 70, per usual. According to the walkers who groaned at us going through Maymont, here’s more or less what happened: 6:30 launch: Swiper (13ish?) and Shakedown (11.4) 7:00 launch: Doublemint and YHC (6.6). Riverside, Belle Isle, Oregon Hill, Idylwood, back to the VSF. 7:00 (?) from points afar: Saab (10). Names, numbers, YHC took us out. NMS: Solid today, Doublemint. Thank you. Good chatter at ET’s. UpChuck spits the bit.

Seven stallions saddled up for the latest edition of Sunday Funday. Temps were 70 and sunny. According to the person who winterizes the bubblers for the James River Park System, the following may have happened: Shakedown and TYA ran two loops. UpChuck and everyone else headed south bank, then Buttermilk, then Forest Hill loop. Pigskin got knocked down, but got up again, then joined Hitchhiker to complete 4. The rest completed 7. Numbers, names, TYA took us out.

Pigskin and Offshore posted to ensure that no PAX would run alone. The rain mostly held off for an out and back on the access road. The PAX then gathered at ET’s for an early coffee. YHC’s 2.0 thanks Pigskin for saving him from a Sunday morning run around the neighborhood.

5 men plus two pooches launched on three routes. Conditions remained seasonally exceptional at 70 and sunny. According to Walter, the following happened: Route: Bridge, Buttermilk, bridge, North Bank (Pigskin does a 4 mile out and back; YHC and Walter do a 25 minute out and 25 minute back): Results: Walter started out in the lead. Walter was passed by Doublemint, then Pigskin and Rip Cord. Walter was passed by Sally and Offshore. Walter was passed by Helix. Walter passed Offshore and Sally. Walter was passed by Offshore and Sally. Walter reached the midpoint of the Nickel Bridge. (1.5 miles…

Eight on two feet and three on four-feet launched at 7 with temps sunny and 70. According to the fur-lined lady, the following may have happened: Route: 3 plus Sally and PETA took on Buttermilk to North Bank, while 4 walked Buttermilk to Reedy Creek, back on the gravel path with Walter. Note: Offshore is concerned about Pigskin. YHC apologies. Pigskin ran out and back – YHC believes his normal 20-20 out and back loop. Announcements: Walter’s prostate is clear. NMS: Plans well underway for a next set of ultra tests in the spring. Nice to see Ollivander again. YHC…

Six men, or seven as Saab ran a brutal route, posted – or hit the post and then posted – to the latest edition of Sunday Funday. Conditions everywhere other than crossing the Nickel Bridge, were 70 and sunny. According to the 40 or so bushes that Peta pee-tad on, here’s what might have happened. Route was decided incrementally – live-in-the-moment style. Initial Route: let’s go over the bridge first. Next Turn: Take a right at The Lariat, unless YHC is the runner, then take a left and win the prize for “first to the water fountain.” Never hesitate in…

8 male, 2-footed runners joined one somewhat standoffish 4-footed female for a saunter around the trails. According to Gopi, who is prepping for the Richmond Marathon, here is more or less what happened: Route: Buttermilk, T. Pottersfield Bridge, North Bank, except that some runners did the Long Way around Belle Isle and some runners did out and back 20 minutes each way. Numbers, Names, YHC took us out. Announcements: TYA has a race set up at 07:00 on the day after Thanksgiving. 4 mile loop every hour. Start a new loop every hour until you cannot or do not want…

Hard to say, but something like 6 showed up for this week’s version of Sunday Funday. Temps remained at exactly 70 with sunny skies. According to Anthrax’s dog, PETA, the following all happened approximately 2 minutes before Anthrax showed up. 06:57 : Saab launches. 07:00 : Shakedown, Sippy Cup, Lab Rat, and UpChuck launch. Route was Buttermilk (+Lariat), Forest Hill, then fire road with Shakedown and Lab Rat returning via North Bank. 07:03 : Anthrax and PETA launch. They ran what they ran. Sippy and YHC circled, numbered, named, and COT’d thinking others were going much further. YHC apologizes for…

Route was access road to Belle Isle loop and back, but discussion over how much rain downtown didn’t get Saturday caused an audible to return on North Bank. It was a good call. Other F3ers were spotted out in the wild as well enjoying the weather. A bit of advice: for the next few weeks until time change, bring a headlamp…you will need it for the first couple miles. Also, never ask Saab for help in illegally throwing out a mirror. You can guarantee yourself 7 years of bad luck.
