2017 Corporate Run

After wanting to run this race for a few years I finally had the opportunity to run the Anthem Corporate Run with 40 of my co-workers and another 1,000 or more runners from around the city.  Turned out to be a great night for it and I ran a little over 5k in 24:37 for a 7’46” pace.

2017 RMYC RG65 Series #1

3/19 RMYC RG65 Series

We had a nice afternoon for the first RG65 race at Richmond Model Yacht Club on Lake Rooty.  I was a bit rusty and overpowered in the puffs and managed a 5th overall out of 9 boats in 8 races.  It was fun getting back on the water and seeing what happens when I actually got the boat pointed the right way.

2016 James River Hike With Jess

Jess was in town for the holidays and with it being such a nice day I showed her the new pedestrian bridge over the James River and we retraced the hike I did early this month.  We ran into Lauren and Patrick who took a couple pictures of us.

Richmond’s New Tyler Potterfield Bridge

Last night in Richmond was the grand illumination and the opening of the new Tyler Potterfield Bridge connecting Brown’s Island to the Manchester Flood Wall on the other side of the river.  I got out there first thing in the morning to check it out and ended up doing a loop over and around Bell Isle.  It’s a nice bridge and it has many more incredible views of the city and the river.

Richmond Skyline at Night

Richmond Skyline at Night

Tried to go down to the Manchester flood wall to photograph the city during the grand illumination of the lights, but found the park blocked off due to construction and without enough time to find another way around – all I was able to get was one measly shot.  At least it’s a pretty good one.

2015 UCI U23 Bike World Championship Richmond

Richmond hosted the UCI Road Bike Racing World Championship September 17-27.  I took Friday afternoon off to watch the U23 championship on the streets of Richmond.  They did 10 laps on a ~17m course.  I started at the east end of the course and worked my way west zig zagging my way across the city on foot to watch.  After watching a lap on Monument Avenue I took an Uber back to the start/finish.

What amazed me:

  • How tight the packs of bikes raced
  • How fast they went
  • How many support vehicles there were and how fast they went
  • How many people there were out watching

And watching other parts of the race on TV/ipad really showed how cool Richmond is and I was proud to see it on stage for the world.

Here are some of the sights and sounds that I saw:

James River Rapids Snow

I had always wanted to see the river after a snow and finally trudged my way all the way to Pony Pasture Rapids Park to get this shot around midday today:
