Feeling Chipper!

Posted on

YHC was relegated to a solo EC Ruck…but only for a brief moment. After a quick call home, perhaps inspired by spectating at the previous weekend’s Spartan Race, YHC’s M headed out with a weighted vest and joined for the duration. Waiting at the AO were 5 PAX, ready to do what they must: move […]

13 pax at The Bullpen this morning for a beautiful tour of the finer parts of pre-dawn Durham.  There was a quick warmup in the parking lot with no SSH.  We did some overhead claps, some LBACs, and some hillbillies.  And some Willie Mays Hayes.  For the Tribe…don’t break my heart again this year, please… […]

Following Footsteps

Posted on

Great morning for a trail run. Clear skies and temperatures in the upper 60s welcomed 5 PAX to The Rabbit. A busy Monday meant that YHC had to do all the planning during the morning coffee, although there was something in his mind that helped with the preparations. After warm greetings, the clock marked 5:30 […]

Churham Ziggurat

Posted on

The 20 PAX who showed up at the Vortex this morning didn’t get anything as refined or symmetrical as a pyramid, much less a new or innovative game that made us all hurt so good.  The workout was even shamefully weak on cardio!  Alas, we had to settle for something more like a ziggurat: simple […]
