Walk with wise men

6 HIMS of the Rock Region gathered today at Wall Street to run and sharpen iron on a chilly morning, hopefully the last or one of the last before spring is in full bloom.  YHC is looking forward to cool mornings in the Gloom – great running conditions.  Jester & Iron Sight rolled in from […]

  Better late than never, but I guess that is the way these go sometimes! Well we were coming off the Rooster, and many of us have been to the same downhill/uphill run to the Hotbox. So I figured I would provide a route that I use to train for my Ultra Races. So we […]

Running past Christmas

  YHC was honored as always to lead this great group of 6 other HIMs at Wall St. on this glorious brisk morning. Thank you Big Fundamental for the opportunity. WARMUP I had asked the PAX to be warm at the start of the workout so there was no official warmup. However, YHC did lead […]
