Lexington – Stride

Manhunt Route

Thankful for the Twitter reminder yesterday that YHC was to be the QIC of Friday’s Stride. Good to be back out there with some of F3LexSC’s finest. All 3 Fs were felt this AM. Also, YHC’s heart rate…this was very much felt on the Pond View and S. Church hills.  Great seeing the men of …

Manhunt Monday

It’s a bad feeling when you show up to run group and the other 2 guys are 2 of the fastest in the region. Luckily, Pickle and Spillway slowed down just enough for YHC to keep up.  While it wasn’t my most conversational pace, good fellowship throughout the 6+ miler. Conditions: 41 degrees, no rain …

I will admit it…after hearing a steady rain while in the comfort of the fartsack, the last thing I wanted to do was run in the cold rain. Why did my Q have to fall on a morning when it’s 38 degrees and rainy? But, forces I am thankful for…responsibility, accountability, the focus on acceleration…got …

Reverse Manhunt

Good crowd this AM for 28 degrees run. Not sure if it was the idea of the beating Wander or just the need for #acceleration. Jam, Brita, and Lumbergh took an extra red pill and ran XL miles.  The route boasted a hilly start, running up Church St then Pond View but flattened out after …

The Outrageous Route

Perfect running weather this AM as we ran 6.35 miles uphill. Lumbergh said it was outrageous. Strava’s elevation gain calculator tells YHC it wasn’t that bad.  Uneven sidewalk claimed another victim this AM. Impressive roll out of it, Nameless Pax.  Jam and Eggo ran their weekly Hump Day Half…now, that’s outrageous.  Below is the damage: …
