Echols Dorm: Brick Wall By Side Door
Ridge Road is a simple 8 mile out and back on a gravel road about 15 minutes away on Barracks/Garth Road. There’s a very obvious turning point if you’re only interested in doing 7 miles (it also avoids the biggest hill on the run, which happens right after you turn around at 4 miles). This one is a little closer to C’ville, and we won’t be parking in a church parking lot, so the departure time is later. If you’d like to do the run twice (16 miles), I’d be willing to wait for you, since people so kindly waited for me last week.
Here’s a link to the run: http://www.mapmyrun.com/run/united-states/va/charlottesville/332721785
Right now the weather is sunny, but still cold, so wear layers. Bring water, and a snack if you need those calories right after finishing. Should you be interested, I’ll probably be stopping somewhere for breakfast on the way back, so bring some $$.
