Supporting running in the metro Richmond area
Thursday December 22: The Museum of Fine Arts Winter Solstice Trail Run and Light tour! We leave from Sheppard Street behind the Museum's parking structure at 5:32pm. We will run over The Boulevard Bridge, take the Buttermilk Trail west to east, cross Belle Isle and then run through the fan while taking in the light displays! This run is right for you if you can hold a 9:30'ish mile pace, can comfortably run trails and most important Want To Have A Little Fun and Adventure! Bring a headlamp or hand-held! Bring fluid if you'll want to drink on this 8'ish mile run. After: Some will likely be heading over to the Galaxy Diner in Carytown for whatever they're serving-up.
Saturday, 6th (or 7th ?) Christmas Eve: THIS IS THE CHRISTMAS EVE RUN THAT YOU'VE HEARD ABOUT!!! IT'S THE BIGGEST AND BESTEST IN CENTRAL VIRGINIA!!! COME OUT FULLY DRESSED IN YOUR BEST CHRISTMAS ATTIRE/COSTUME (whatever that may be)!!! Don't be left out if you haven't yet done this one!!! The 10K easy paced run starts and finishes at the Robin's Center/Fooltball Field at the University of Richmond. We start at 8am and will run 3.1 miles from the UofR and onto Grove Avenue east. There'll be water/fluid at the turnaround. Big thanks to Harry Donati for manning the water stop. The return to the UofR is the reverse course. when back at the UofR we will have a cookie exchange, so bring something to share, as well as a baggie to take something home! A bunch will then be heading over to the Westbury Pharmacy Cafe for a great breakfast and a bottomless cup o' joe (great breakfast specials for $5.24 including tax). Please bring a few cups and a bottle of fluid so that Harry will have something for us when we get to the turnaround.

We must have looked really terrifying to them! A crazy bunch of lunatics soaking wet & muddy, headlamps and reflective vests a-glowing, shouting "WE WISH YOU A MERRY CHRISTMAS" oh my-what a sight we must have been!
Forget about them. We tried and they didn't seem to get it. however, it was just what we needed! Yo
