Shake Me Back to Paradise

Posted on

You’re probably thinking that YHC is way too young to be referencing a 38 Special song. As it turns out, I was born the year the song was released.  As the PAX assembled YHC remembered saying “I kinda expect Yanni to come running in from nowhere any second.” He must have been hiding in the […]

Two Men Enter. One Man Leaves.

Posted on

A number of brave souls assembled this morning at a Subprime-less, Lone Pine-less Rameses.  The conditions were awesome: fresh from a recent rain, cooler-feeling than recent history, and mild compared to what is forecast for the end of this week.  Timber started the count off in Spanish.  We made it through about eight, and then […]

Rabid Chatham Rabbit

Posted on

Much discussion on chatham_chatter of mascots and the history of the Chatham Rabbit prompted a challenge to create an exercise called the Rabid Rabbit. YHC gladly accepted said challenge for the second installment of the escape from the Big House. (Quick History: Chatham County was once renowned for its rabbits as both a fine dining […]

Metal, Street Lights and the Mighty 15

Posted on

Four brave souls showed up to start the week off with a pleasant 3-mile EC run at the Eagle AO (Peach, Slowpitch, Avalanche, and Beano). By the magic hour of 5:30am, that initial four had grown to become a group of 15 PAX for the Main Event.  The following good work was done this day […]

Dinosaurs (Jr) & Cavemen

Posted on

The Mystery Q idea, hatched weeks ago in the underground F3 lab, was put into action for the first time on Monday at The Thicket. The surprise dual Qs emerged from the PAX, unveiled their chosen prehistoric theme, and got to work. The opening disclaimer included an important warning: only Skynyrd is allowed to feed […]

Winter is Here

The Night’s Watch: 3 men rucked and 4 ran for Extra Credit.  Though it wasn’t quite the temperature I imagine is median for The Wall this time of year, the weather did feel a little cooler this morning compared to last week. 16 PAX defended the wall today.  DOI showed up and told me to […]

Beware the (Crawl)Bearmuda Triangles

Posted on

5 pax rucked to start off Saturday and 2 others cruised for 4 miles.  It would been longer but Doogie is a doctor, a real one and on TV, and he had to take a call halfway in.  When we returned,  I was chatting with Doogie and Mr. Brady and realized I needed to take […]

Squirkin to the Oldies

Posted on

  High humidity greeted 21 PAX, and after our resident on-call Dr. was summoned to the hospital, the remaining 20 endured the scheduled smokefest, debated the meaning of “Su-Su-Sussudio,” and confronted the many features of The Wall AO that the QIC managed to squeeze into a rapid fire 45 minutes. There’s the paved hill, the […]

The End Was in the Beginning

Posted on

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 […]
