Running Down a Dream

Running Down a Dream

Nine men went running in the dark, some faster than others. One went farther than the rest and got stuck with the backblast.


  • Welcome back to Haggis, the only man in F3Nation to abandon not one, but two, BRR teams, a feat that can only be accomplished with the sustained and concentrated effort of a Scottish stonemason.  Well done, sir.  Or as they say in your native tongue, “naldksjfh;aosdfn”  Cry yourself to sleep on your giant pillow.
  • “Injured” or not, give  the Rock ’em Sock ’em robot his due:  he was with the bantamweights out front, while both of A51’s Mountain Goat Tough pax (YHC, MM) and Rock Thrill (also MGT) brought up the rear.  #Clydesdales
  • Though it’s my first time to the new DT site, I might high jack this thing like the rest of you Judases did with HDHH:  the dew and slime-covered boardwalk is no way to run.  Less so when the frost is on the pumpkins.  Next week, I am taking that puppy on to the sidewalks of Providence Rd and Raintree (the Sunday ABC route). Just no one tell The Shore–I don’t want to get stabbed in the neck with a syringe from the sample closet. #worldstoughestpedo
  • No takers on the extra hill work.  Just sayin’.

Sorry I missed the A51 #BRR training session. Although I did run this morning, it was not with the team…I will make up for it on Sunday AM.

TR, just remember that we have a Sunday morning run when you Q #F3DayZero on Saturday, as I’m not really into running multiple times in a matter of 24 to 36 hours. And I agree on running those boardwalks…hazardous, especially in the dark. There’s a lot of good routes that could be explored launching from the same site…through Piper Glen, into Carrington and even over into your favorite neighborhood, Raintree.

Is there an Area51 Sunday run these days?

Nice work out there today by the BRR team. Near the end I was glad that my 1 hour running goal was cut short by the construction fence at the 3+ mile mark because the lightening pace that Haggis, TL and Honeybee had me running was brutal. Thanks for pushing me to the limit guys! Might want to provide Stagecoach and Baracas a map next time. I thought we had ourselves another “Bugeater lost in the woods at DT” situation on our hands, but thanks to the Run For Your Life group they were able to find there way back.

I was really proud of myself for leading the group on the way to the turnaround. When we started going back, Haggis, TL, HB, and 49er left me in the dust. Why would those guys let me lead for the first half and then ditch me? I wonder if it has anything to do with the free spider webs I got to eat for breakfast…

For what it’s worth, they haven’t actually closed the old Devil’s Turn course (yet).

Thank goodness you were able to negotiate the treacherous slopes of the flattest run in Charlotte without injury.

Yeah Mighty, I do appreciate you letting me draft behind you on the way out. It pays to be shorter sometimes. #nospiderwebsonme
