The XXIII Olympic Winter Games at The Wall

Posted on

Prologue: The Winter Olympics had always been YHC’s favorite of the two Olympics. What’s not to love about people jumping off of mountains, shooting guns while skiing, and traveling down an ice track at 80 mph face first. Also, the Winter Olympics was a rare time to be reminded of YHCs Norwegian heritage and how […]

Evolution/De-Evolution

Posted on

This has been a tough week for YHC. Trying hard to recover, stay focused, stay healthy and positive. Hitting the Wall on my training. Hitting the Wall on my investments. Hitting the Wall in life. Tired of stock market madness. Tired of putting a bunch of expectations and pressure on myself. Need to shut all […]

Do Your Job

Posted on

Last night, as I was preparing for my Q this morning (watching an F3 video on how to count), I was continually stymied by the course of action I should take today. In the past I’ve always looked forward to leading the pack, but last night I wasn’t really feeling it. Maybe it had something […]

This would be our circle-up space today.   As we gathered under cover, YHC noticed a lone rucker headed towards the […]

“A good look at Yanni’s balls”

Posted on

I’m pretty sure Yanni has a whole warehouse full of balls. Balmy weather brought the herd today with 6 posting a 4:30 ruck led by the never dissapointing Rambler. 9 for 5:15 EC led by Yanni and his wacky warehouse of junk turned into useful workout gear. Most notable the bola style baseballs, hanging ever […]

The Zooker Makes His Debut

Posted on

So there I was, explaining the instructions of my first Q. The looks of confusion and udder bewilderment on the faces said it all. This workout was not going to work, and I better come up with something quick or this is going to be a disaster. I mean how do these guys not know […]

If You Threaten Them, They Will Come

Posted on

With the impending due date for Operation Sweet Tooth donations being in the cold gloom, YHC issued a bold threat on Slack the day before, Penalty Burpees for those who arrive empty handed. While threatening people is not condoned, much to the surprise of YHC, donations were poured into the Qs car. I would like […]

Modern Day Warriors embracing the suck

Posted on

16 modern day warriors came out to play hard today. They battled the fartsack and the chilly rain to join YHC and attack this Friday with purpose.  They ran. They pushed. They got soaked. They clenched their buttocks. Warmup Since it’s form week, YHC did a quick tutorial on proper F3 counting.  He spoke to […]
