BackBlast Man Down

Man Down

All Treats No Tricks

After almost forgetting that I had snagged one of the last Qs of the month YHC tossed around the idea of doing stairs and laps for the whole hour today but eventually decided that maybe we should just put in some miles with some elevation work midway through. The plan was simple we would run …

2nd Place is a set of steak knives!

10-24-2022 AO: Elevation Monday/ Elevation Run Day The BRR is behind us but we’re not done running! With the addition of a Monday WaveRucker, it seems that EM will stay as a run workout…at least for most days.

So after some interest and likes on the Slack channel YHC decided to keep this Monday option alive and hop on the Q sheet just to see who would show, keep myself accountable especially after running the half the day before, and to be honest because I had a feeling no one else was gonna …

THE 18TH Annual BLUE RIDGE RELAY – “Where to Begin”

BRR Training: Running up that Road, Running up that Hill, running up a Highway

AO: Elevation Runday Conditions: Perfect Lo & Behold, YHC was listed as the Q for today. I had no idea!

Just another Manic RUNday

EM is now ER or ERD or whatever…but we have turned it into a training session for the BRR in September. Eventually we hope to have all 12 runners along with alternates out there, and maybe our 4 drivers to bring us snacks and massage us between legs (of the race, not between the legs), …
