TWN — 9/27/17 3.5/6/8

I said I’d never  make a route go by Meadow and Cary. Apparently I lied. On the bright side, we have a SAG tonight provided by Andrew and Family on Grove! Remember to thank them!

Please view the maps. The visual makes more sense than the words. Also please remember your lights and reflective vests!

TWN 9/20/17

Greetings to the TWN group. This weeks run will be a themed run.  Our great nation seems to be in turmoil over how they feel about certain monuments and structures.  Richmond has sadly been no exception.  So in an effort to bring us all together, I have created a route that is going to be all inclusive.  We are going to be running past everything from the Arthur Ashe Monument , churches, synagogues, VMFA, and yes even the now infamous Lee Monument.  Feel free to engage in healthy and respectful debate on your 8 or 10 mile run….you’ll have plenty of time to chat.  Or if that’s too overwhelming, you can always talk about where dinner is going to be.  Anyway, enjoy the evening and don’t forget reflective gear and lights.

One other thing – a VCU photography student asked if she could take pictures of us during the run, so that she could get experience taking pictures of people in motion. She agreed to send us copies after she’s taken them so that if anyone has any objections to their picture being taken, they can say so.

TWN Routes for 8/23/17

A warm hello, TWNers! This wednesday’s routes are 8, 7, and 3 miles. Just like last week, everybody gets a SAG! Thanks to Yulando for staffing and providing supplies.

When heading out on Wednesday, keep in mind that one the biggest benefits of running through the city is getting to explore new neighborhoods. Don’t forget to take a breather and enjoy your surroundings every now and again! Nothing is more relaxing as you breeze down tree-lined city streets overlooking RVA’s gorgeous historic buildings. We are so fortunate to run in a neighborhood that is unquestionably one of the city’s greatest cultural and architectural assets.

As always, please bring your own route to the run, and check it ahead of time.

Wednesday at 6:15 pm!

TWN Routes for 8/16/17

Hello TWNers! Wednesday’s routes are 8, 7, and 3 miles. Also, I can’t wait to share with you this AMAZING news; everybody gets a SAG this week! You read it correctly! Thanks so much to Mallary F. and Bob S. for hosting and providing supplies. We’re eternally in your debt. Please consider volunteering to host, operate, or donate supplies for a future run. If you’ve already signed up, thanks! There will be a sign-up sheet before the run on Wednesday. Lastly, always bring your own route to the run, and check it ahead of time. We’re all human, and while we try our best, we occasionally make mistakes on our routes. Also, Fan streets are notorious for having street signs that are difficult to locate. See you at the church ready to run by 6:20 pm. Cheers!

TWN Routes for 8/9/17

Hey TWNers!  Looks like we’re due for a little break from the 90+ degree temps so hopefully a great evening for a run!  Routes are 6 miles, 8 miles and a 3 miler as well. Note to 3 milers – your route does not go past the SAG but does stay with the other runners for most of your miles.  Many thanks to Ed for hosting our SAG tonight! Everyone have a great run!

TWN Routes for 10/26/16

Good news!! Lucky Foot/Lucky Road is providing our SAG this week. Thank you Lucky Road! Bad news: we have to get to Lucky Foot/Lucky Road and the sun will set as we leave the church. Please wear reflective gear and a light. We will cross Monument twice after dark – not to mention Grove, Patterson, etc. Please wear reflective gear and a light. Also it’s a good idea to double check the route.
