Jack Circuit and a Reliability Test

Posted on

A glorious morning beckoned 4 PAX to the sleepy, idyllic hamlet of Hillsborough.  The air was full of a pleasant, frenzied bustle only found in small towns: vans and trucks darting hither and thither, men loading and unloading, all making preparations for the workweek’s final day to get ready for the weekend. I told the […]

Sleeveless in Hillsborough, NC

Posted on

Be very careful, then, how you live—not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil.   We post each morning with a purpose in mind.  We post for fitness, for the fellowship, because we were EH’d and had no excuse, for the PAX, and for things greater […]

A little of this, a little of that

It was Gloom o’clock and 10 PAX gathered for Floyd’s 3rd out of 24 quest for the Master Q CSAUP challenge. This was Floyd’s home turf, and he wanted to share as much of it as was possible. We had a great contingent including several regulars, a visitor from Charlotte and a newly named FNG […]

Very “Serious” Arm Injury

Posted on

Injury: A few days ago, YHC was reaching for a reheated sandwich out of the oven (a #47 for you Jersey Mike’s aficionados – get the giant and save half for later) and YHC burned my arm slightly on the side of the oven. It’s a very serious injury, YHC has told the M multiple times […]

The End Was in the Beginning

YHC has signed up for the Master Q challenge.  What better first stop than Paradise?  I signed up because I want to meet the PAX I have not met, and see the AOs I have not seen.  Most imporant, I want to learn more about what F3 brings to me and, in turn, what I can bring […]

MF’ing Snakes

Posted on

If it wasn’t for the prominent snake theme, this morning was trending toward an “F3, The Musical” backblast title. There were two PAX members with “banjo” in their names, QIC’s warmup cadence seemingly evoked a medieval Gregorian chant, and the naming of an FNG produced Phil Collins song titles. But, alas, the snake … Warmup […]

Rudy’s Respect +1 (year) – 1 (day) Q

Posted on

Rudy turns 51 tomorrow, and rather than Q the Goat for his 51st birthday, he decided he’d Q Pleasantville today for his Respect +1 -1 and then the Cougar on Wednesday for his Respect +1 +1. Rudy does a lot of martial arts training, which means 2 things.  First, he could probably beat you up, […]
