World Cup Fever is Real

Posted on

  With our dear Chef Tell on the DL, an impromptu opportunity came up to Q at The Thicket and YHC did not think twice about it. A brief survey of the AO last evening gave YHC a good idea of what could be done. It is almost June, when 32 countries will face off […]

“Hips don’t Lie”

Posted on

A beautiful, cool morning was our canvas for an event filled workout. 5 PAx did Murph training finishing 70% and a 1 mile run whilst weighed down. 18 Pax faced the coming beat down with relative enthusiasm considering the early hour.

Briar Chapel’s new F3 neighborhood watch

A year ago I was a mildly in-shape weekend warrior, who did erratic mountain biking sessions on our lovely BC trails, and had found […]
