Smooth is Good. Lumpy not so much.
A Lucky 13 came today to cover all distances; from running to walking to biking. Here is what we did.
East on Grove to Hamilton, head left to Broad St. East on Broad. 4 milers take a right on Blvd and Grove home. 5s and 6s continue to the Science Museum with 5s going Davis/Grace/Strawberry to Monument and back to Lafayette to Grove. A lone 6 miler continued on to Hermitage to Leigh to Blvd and connected with the 5 miler’s return route.
YHC took us out.
Pre-run, the swiper sniper marked a few targets, YHC gave the routes and we were off. The 5s were a tight pack with good discussion along the way. Seems Toga has a Men’s Health subscription. As the lone 6, it was good to see Marv was not shot pending his concerns of recent crime in that area.
The 5s were able to get the sphere rotating a little at the Science Museum. I am sure there is some physics behind the friction reduction through hydrology but that will be for another day. UR has a similar sphere, so perhaps we can investigate during Spider Run.
Discussion was good post run and seemed to center around concussions and getting ones bells (or balls) rung. Similar mumble chatter yielded today’s backblast title. Good discussion around Ragnar prep and supplies as well as Toga infatuation for CC DeVille. Every rose does indeed have a thorn.
Good luck to those running this weekend. Enjoy the vistas from atop the mountain and know F3RVA is behind you!
