Bear Sighting in Downtown Durham

Intro: Coming off a bit a cold, YHC was ready to get back into the mix in the urban jungle of downtown Durham. However, YHC had heard that recent building activity in the area had stirred up the local wildlife, and there were wild bears wandering in and out of downtown Durham. In an effort […]

YHC is about to relocate his employer out of downtown and into Lakewood Shopping Center. There are many things to love about downtown Durham; this morning’s workout afforded us the opportunity to run past a few of these things and sweat in front of them.

Fearsome Foursome and Threesomes

YHC has no idea why, but the number 3 was stuck in my head over the last couple days in thinking about what might constitute an effective Q strategy.

Browsing the Exicon, it didn’t take long to discover the excruciating possibilities in 4x4s and ALARMs. It seemed a necessity that 14 unsuspecting PAX should enjoy these pain-inflicting combinations on a […]
