The Blair Ditch

Posted on

INTRO The stars (and moon) aligned with perfect weather for a Blair Witch themed run through the woods. On my scouting mission the previous week I stumbled upon a huge gobbler, which was the influence for the “As-Is 10 Count.” After a brief disclaimer about a treacherous ditch on the trail, 7 brave runners circled […]

Hockey Training for Dummies

Posted on

A modified version of a workout I ran at the Rabbit. Since there were only 2 PAX at that funfest I figured why let a good beating go to waste and brought it to the men of Pleasantville. YHC is still watching hockey playoffs and can’t get it out of my brain so Southern Village […]

The Brutal Basics

Posted on

First of all, big respect to the brave PAX who once again started Wednesday off with a running of the Pine (Champ, Ocho, Appomattox, Uzi, Draper, Aujus).  It definitely has a wicked sense of humor. Afterwards, a total of 15 PAX accompanied Beano during the ME to work through the Brutal Basics (BB). WARM UP […]
