Conditions:  55 and drizzling rain Leave Starbucks and head …

WOW for 1/29 – 2/3

YHC has finally arisen from the post Grow-Ruck cave of last week.  If your reading this you’ve probably heard many stories from the night, which will not be re-hashed here, but I would like to leave you with the amazing feeling that YHC and most of GrowRuck class 007 had last Sunday morning.  It had …

Statehouse and Horseshoe

Fridays are a special day at Ramble.  Run 20 Minutes, then 60 Minutes of coffee.  This puts some limitations on the Q, most of which I ignored. The Thang! Run down Wheat, up Main, around the statehouse, down Sumter, through the Horseshoe, then back up Devine. Looked something like this.

Easy like Monday morning

Six pax gathered for Ramble: two completed full route (distance covered 4.9 miles) and four modified due to tapering for upcoming #CSAUP events. The Route: Leave SPC turn left on Wheat Turn Right on Ott Turn Right on Harvard which becomes Superior Slight Right on Holt Right on Pickens Right on Wheat Left on Woodrow …

#Ramble Mile

Amidst the swelter, the moist heat of a @F3Columbia summer, seven men bested the Monday #Fartsack in order to poke and prod their bodies into sharper bipedal machines.  That is, we ran four miles, one of them down Devine Street. Conditions:  Holy crap it’s hot and humid. TheThang: The map is nearly worthless if you …
