2019 Monument Ave 10k

It was a rainy day for the 2019 Monument Avenue 10k. Thankfully the rain washed away all of the pollen that has been in the air. My goal for this one was to run the whole thing and finish in under an hour.  I beat that by about 5 minutes and was pretty happy with my running.

2019 Hill Topper 5k

For the 2nd year now I got out to run the Hill Topper 5k in Church Hill. While it has been pretty cold both years I’ve run it – it has served as a good race to train for and start getting in shape for the Monument Ave 10k a month later.

Caroline & Ian’s Wedding

In February Caroline and Ian got married. It started with drinks out at a brewery which led to late night margaritas with out of town sailing friends and followed up with a beautiful wedding and reception on Saturday.  Congrats Caroline & Ian!

2018 James River Flood Wall and Slave Trail Hike

Thanksgiving weekend we had a beautiful afternoon and Jess and I went exploring in the James River Park system. We started at the south end of the Potterfield Bridge, went east along the flood wall, then to the slave trail before backtracking to the Manchester Bridge and through part of the city back to Brown’s Island and the Potterfield Bridge back to the car. It was a long hike, but it was cool to see parts of the river we’ve not seen before. We were really surprised by all of the development east of The Boat House along the Capital Trail. We’ll have to do this again when the river level is lower and we can do the pipeline walk.

On this Wednesday 4th of July Jess and I joined my family including my sister and her husband for Fireworks on the upper James River west of Richmond from the boat.  It was a nice night for anchoring under the stars and watching a great fireworks show.

2018 Anthem Corporate Run

We had a beautiful evening for the Anthem Corporate Run 5k. Companies from around the city sponsor teams, there’s a run around Innsbrook and then a couple thousand participants hang out among the company tents for a big party.  I had a great time catching up with friends from all the different companies.

2018 Monument Avenue 10k

Monument Ave 10k

Saturday I ran the Monument Avenue 10k for the first time in 6 years.  The weather was absolutely perfect – warm but not hot with mostly sunny. I have an ambitious running goal for this year and it was good to have this to look forward to for training. I managed to run it in under an hour.

2018 RMYC RG65 Series #2

The RG65 season is underway at the Richmond Model Yacht Club on Lake Rooty and we had nice weather for the 2nd race day of the series. Unfortunately, No Quarter had radio problems and became uncontrollable after the first race.  I still got to borrow a couple boats to sail – thanks Rob & Marc.

I’ve wanted to get a slightly bigger boat that would enable me to sail it in the choppier water in Deltaville.  I haven’t decided what I want yet, but a new member came who was interested in getting into the RG65 class and I ended up selling him my boat on the spot.  The RG65 was fun to sail and great for Lake Rooty and I’ll sure I’ll find another boat in the coming months.
