The Contenders:

Doobie: Pizza Challenge 3.0 scouting

Stone Cold: 12 miles in his elitist gated community

Jogfather: 5 miles, none of them without a proper buzz, at the Grapeful Sisters winery

Runner Up:

Just Eric – 20.1 miles of snow, mud, and trail in Mountainside – a very big weekend run in nasty conditions.

Run of the Week:

Liability’s Pre-BSL Tempo: 10.1 miles at 6:40 pace, his fastest ever 10 miler at 1:06:37

Editor’s Note: His Saturday nap, which had nothing to do with #daydrinking – was also considered for this award.

January 2018 – Award Winners

Congratulations to three Highlands Hashers who qualified for the January 2018 Club Challenge.  For the first month, we had all three levels represented.

Gold Award: P’foot – Ran all 31 days, at least 31 miles a week.  In fact, he blew away the mileage requirement, hitting at least 60 miles per week with a total of 288 miles for the month.  In friggin’ January.  Think about that for a minute.  Those are some cold miles right there.  Congrats buddy!

Eh, sorry for the delay on this. But if you’re running anyway, who cares.

President’s Cup: Run, in miles during February, the weight of a selected president to earn Bronze, Silver, Gold, or….Platinum status.

Bronze: James Madison – 122lbs

Silver: Ulysses Grant – 140 lbs

Gold: John Quincy Adams – 203 lbs

Platinum: William Taft – 332 lbs

Remember, honor system applies. You can run indoors or out. Walking doesn’t count (cough: Doobie and Iron Maiden). Self-report your stats when the time comes. Good luck out there!

Iron Maiden Wins January

 

Congratulations to Iron Maiden, who earns the prestigious club Run of the Week Award for completing the first HH Club Challenge of 2018 – 31 days of running – giving streaking, which she is known for, a second meaning.

It’s Superbowl Sunday and your editorial board is drunk off duty tonight and not going through all of the Honorable Mentions tonight.

But a hearty congratulations to the Iron Maiden on a very, very well earned ROTW.

Run of the Week – January 2018 Week 4

Another cold week has passed but the runs of 2018 are already starting to heat up.  The competition toward the club’s first challenge for 2018 is almost done, and only one brave man and one brave maiden are still standing.  Be on the lookout for the February Challenge, coming soon!

Here is a recap of some of the finer runs this week.

Run of the Week – January 2018 Week 3

It seems like the idea of staying indoors in January has gotten to be a little bit stale for everyone this week.  Liability kicked off the week with a big run, but then it was quiet for a few days, until the weekend hit and everyone collectively said “Oh yeah, hold my beer” and went out there to log some serious miles.  Great showing all around, and a very competitive ROTW.  Here is a look at a few of the finer runs this week:

Run of the Week – January 2018 Week 2

This week was a bit of a tease – the temperatures finally rose above single digits during the early part of the week, only to hit about 50 degrees and give us a taste of spring weather – for one day – before plummeting back into the low teens for the weekend.

Winter is here – but a few of us were smart enough to flee for a few days and get away from it all.

We even had a few races completed already!  Here’s a look at some of our best this week: Continue reading Run of the Week – January 2018 Week 2
