Running Around a Rock

Someone mysteriously signed YHC up to Q The Rabbit what Zika calls “Churham’s Premier Running AO.”  As some know, YHC is properly categorized as a “non-runner.”  Leading up, the skepticism was high (the highest in YHC’s own brain), especially given YHC’s nonconforming running-heavy boot camp at The Big House last week.  Yesterday, YHC reassured the […]

Down, Up, and Something In-between

As penned by Flowbee It was a crisp, clear March morning when YHC rolled up to the AO where 11 PAX were ready to sweat. We got started after Cricket kindly declared that YHC must have forgotten to don shorts this morning as he could see the light of the moon and several constellations reflecting […]

New Year, Same Ten Mile Tuesday

The monthly Rabbit tradition of Ten Mile Tuesday rolled into 2021 and brought a double points day for the continuing Tuesdays on Ice Challenge with temperatures hovering just below freezing for the entirety of the run. 8 PAX felt the need to get in two laps for a full 10 miles with 8 joining at […]

Fast, Slow, Young, Old

A nice, warm but slightly damp morning greeted the PAX as they emerged from the fog. Word was that some friendly faces of various areas and paces from the North would be joining us to make a good turnout. The Rabbit has been trending up steadily for several years as we’re able to recruit more […]

Running fast in circles

It was a second straight strong turnout for the Rabbit. 12 PAX Strong. Whatever Iron Lung and Jinx are doing is working! Main Event I appreciate when PAX of all speeds and abilities can stick together at The Rabbit and I took my ‘Q’ (so to speak) from Ironlung’s pace runs last week. Today we […]

Tour of the BC AO’s – Past and Present

So in thinking about the Q this week – I really wanted to do an interval workout. But I felt that I’d done a few of those at The Rabbit recently and wanted to mix things up a bit. For inspiration I went down the rabbit hole (see what I did there?) of old backblasts […]

Back Out for a Ladder in the Rain

We had been closed down for two months due to SARS CoV-2 and the coronavirus disease it causes, dubbed COVID-19. This week we emerged from our best efforts at social and physical isolation with steps back out into the gloom (and gloom it was – driving rain at 4:30 AM would have driven YHC back […]

The Taper Hater

I proactively grabbed the 3/10 Q slot at  the Rabbit nearly 2 months ago. It’s Tobacco Road taper week and I feared being subjected to an overly aggressive Q pushing hill sprints or fartleks on the PAX. So today I took the reigns and opted for a  slow, steady, 4-mile route that would leave substantive […]

Strength, Endurance, Patience, Creativity and Intelligence

YHC has been reading a lot of running books lately. There are many common themes, but one that stands out is that people run better if they run with a group. Ten mile Tuesday at The Rabbit has become a great venue for this – The Rabbit, in general, has done so much for me […]
