Four Years Later

Posted on

Four years ago on this day, YHC stood alone in a dark parking lot wondering what he had gotten himself into – and wondering if anyone else would show up. A handful of men appeared, then one who introduced himself as Wuerffel stepped into the circle to lead, and this is what he had in […]

Pyramid Scheme

Posted on

Five did Murph EC training, and 13 PAX attended the main event. Time change and a cold and rainy setting kept the numbers down, which was the ideal size to enter what now may be referred to as The Heptagon … Warm up: – Side Shuffle Hop (in cadence x25) – Merkins (in cadence x20) […]

Becoming Dangerous

Introduction: I volunteered to be the stand-in Q for Skynyrd due to an injury. I chose to go with a Marine Corps theme due to the limited prep time and because it’s not in the comfort zone of many people. (This ties in with the CoT discussion). Four PAX Warm-O-Rama: Imperial Squat Walkers (x20) Angle […]

Burping the Baby

Posted on

YHC welcomed his first 2.0 into the world 22 days ago — an incredible, life-changing event. For his VQ (another incredible, life-changing event), YHC figured the entire PAX would enjoy sharing in some of the newly discovered “greatest hits” of fatherhood YHC has experienced thus far: burping the baby, celebrating the departure of in-laws after […]

Smoked & Soaked

Four PAX did EC hill sprints, eight PAX did EC pullups, and then 16 men total took the risk of pouring rain, and only had a little bit of a drizzle in the air and puddles on the ground to deal with – well, that and what QIC had in store. Warmup SSH x 25 […]

Fake it until you become it

Hard to believe that it’s been only one month since YHC’s last Q at The Rabbit. Since then, YHC has posted at a couple of AOs in New Orleans (F3NOLA), a few times around some of the new F3Churham AOs, but has been mainly immersed in other activities, including Christmas celebrations, family travels, the beginning […]

Passing Bricks

Stand in the hallway. 15m to workout. Look at the pile. Polypro Ts and heavy sweatpants and Mudgear and capiline longsleeves and jackets and hoodies and 2- no, 3- pairs of gloves. Grab about half – something long, something short, something heavy, something with a hood, a hat, thick socks, out the door, 13m to […]

Ride of the Lighting Mule Brigade

Important Note: Play this while reading… January 8, 2018 Dearest M, I’m writing you this letter as there are some very strong indications that we shall see action very soon.  The troops are mustering as we speak.  The camp that the General choose is an old school, but the boys have taken to calling it […]

Snuffing The Rooster

Posted on

YHC arrived at the AO at 5:35, planning to sit comfortably in the warm car until launch time. But there was a lone PAX member patiently waiting in the 9-degree gloom. And not just any PAX member – it was an FNG. It takes a certain degree of willpower to overcome the fartsack every morning. […]

Be Driven

Posted on

Nothing like an unreasonably cold morning and an equally unreasonable amount of Merkins to shake off the New Year’s Eve hangover. 3 PAX met for an early morning Ruck, 2 continued at 0520 and 1 joined 5 additional PAX for EC Pull-ups. 22 total PAX, including a great showing from our brothers out of Pleasantville, […]
