Don’t Forget to Pick Up a Card

Posted on

What a fitting way to spend your Valentine’s Day morning. Leave your beautiful wife laying in bed while you crawl out of the fart sack to hang out with a bunch of burly men who may or may not be wearing deodorant.  Luckily, YHC’s not married so he didn’t have to risk a female’s scorn […]

Dunphy’s Theatre

Posted on

20 pax showed up, ready to rumble. When I started doing F3 over 2 1/2 years ago, Rameses was the only Wednesday workout in Churham. I was a regular attendee back then, but since House of Pain was formed, it has become my regular Wednesday post (it is much closer to my home). However, I […]

Back at THWM

Posted on

At least 4 PAX took on ‘The Pine’ on a warm (43 F) January morning. There was also promises of an EC ruck but apparently that didn’t materialize as planned and sites of Champ running up THWM for his pre workout warm up was impressive. As YHC rolled into the OEC 20 PAX were in […]

The Sound and the Fury

Posted on

8 PAX rode The Pine.  Every train needs a caboose, so I joined the crew this AM.  It really was 7 PAX running the Pine together and then one lonely guy pulling up the rear, his only company the 11 solitary degrees to give him warmth on the unforgiving yet salubrious Pine. An old wrestling […]

Post Holiday Rust

Posted on

9 PAX showed up 2 days after Christmas to try and shake off the extra lbs gained over the holiday. Low 30 degrees didn’t help motivate anyone to get out of bed this morning. But, better to get it over with now than later.  Given the cold, the best thing to do today was keep […]

Form Week, Day 3

Posted on

6 runners showed up at 5:00 to hit Lone Pine while 4 PAX showed up for an EC ruck. 26 posted for Rameses on what felt like a spring morning in December. Rameses is typically a veteran group so while I wanted this AO to participate in Form Week and help reinforce how important form […]

VQ: Keep it Stupid Simple

Posted on

I sat straight up in bed this morning, waking from a crazy deep sleep feeling completely rested but with that, “Oh Crap, I overslept!” panic. After checking the clock and realizing it was only 4:45a, I could stop worrying about oversleeping. Boy was I wound up. I’m no stranger to speaking in public and leading […]
