Columbia – Scramble

Revenge of the Scrambull

8 PAX conquered the fartsack on a chilly Monday morning hoping to see Gaston’s smiling face at Scramble.  They were unfortunately greeted by mine as Gaston had messaged me at 3ish am saying he was under the weather and wouldn’t be able to make it.  He had a plan for the Q though so we …

Welcome to Scram-BULL

With temps below freezing and the need to #GetBetter both looming over the #Gloom this morning, YHC emerged from the #Fartsack looking for a way start the week with something a little different.  With the AOQ change over taking place at The Bull, YHC thought it best to pay homage to one of F3 Columbia’s …

#Scramble #LegDay

YHC had an easy three miler planned for the morning affording plenty of time for the traditional #Coffeeteria but, with a rough, #Cantore-like storm moving through town, leading the pax on a loop run didn’t seem wise… especially when plenty of opportunities were available at Trenholm Plaza.  So, instead of an easy three, a gruesome, …

Back to the Hills

YHC finally put out a new Q schedule over the weekend, and gave myself the honor of starting the week. With a serious threat of rain in the forecast, who would answer the call to get better on Monday? It was great to see 8 pax total, with some semi-Kotters for some of the pax. …

#Scramble High

Last time YHC Q’d #Scramble was likely the last time I attended #Scramble… which is embarrassing but I’ve had an excuse… sort of.  With the completion of the Chattanooga GrowRuck prior to Thanksgiving, ruck training is now in the past (sort of) and we can all start eyeing the spring races.  So it was, with …

#Scramble Reversal

With bridges still out north of Forest Lake, the options for getting in a 5-6 mile Wednesday run without spending the morning on a four lane road are a hair limited.  With the pleasures of Lake Katharine, though, so close at hand, the pax returned to that faithful neighborhood.  As many of the #Scramble men …
