Riggs’ 5 year anniversary

27 pax posted for the 5 year anniversary of YHC and F3.  In full disclosure, one of those years YHC was exiled to the Great White North.  But 5 years ago, about today, YHC made his way over to Raleigh to check out this F3 thing.  It was a running workout, YHC’s [least] favorite thing. […]

Bell Tower of Power

Banjo and YHC met in the darkness for 0530 recon ruck. This would be YHC’s first post at TBR. The plan was developed using only Google Maps and reading previous BBs. No worries, as the recon ruck confirmed that the plan was solid. Warm-up: Hooker Fields SSH – IC x20 Merkin – IC x10 Air […]

Kiss and Go Laps

The first morning of cooler fall weather brought 21 out to Bastille to get stronger. Here’s what we did. Warm up – SSH x 25, imperial walker x 20, arm circles + reverse x 10, Willie Mays Hayes x 10, slow ‘merican x 20, all cadence count. About this time Knoxville strolled up (he is […]

Themed for obscenity

* T-claps to Tater Tot and Nickelback for the one hour earlier start for rucking EC.   The Pax assembled near the flag under the lights of the parking deck. YHC was leading his VQ. We moseyed to the end of the garage, or what I thought was the end, only to discover another down […]

“Wow, you can totally taste the preservatives.”

3 PAX had an xl ruck today starting at 4:30 AM, not for the faint of heart.  The rest of the PAX, lazy or sensible depending on your view, collected promptly at 5:45 for  a breakfast of champions.  Beefaroni time! 2 FNG’s bravely faced the unknown and came out victorious with fantastic names.  Welcome Megatron […]

Tug-o-War Domination

No FNG’s so we are off quickly   Warmup: SSH, Windmills, Body Weight Squats, Arm Circles, Mtn Climbers, Merkins The Thang: Subprime gets the start and […]

Roxanne and the Tunnel of Love

16 pax gathered in the Culbreth MS gloom for a little something different. The track, picnic benches and pull-up bars all went unused, but a good time was had by all regardless. The Thang: Warmup in the parking lot: Triple Jacks (SSH, Seal, Plank), Arm Circles, Windmills, WMH, Slow Merkins Indian Run through the parking […]

Third Time’s A Charm

Got started a little late as Snots was picking up a new pair of running shoes.  Somehow he had gone three years without replacing his running shoes.  Word of advice for runners, running shoes are meant for only about 300 miles.  For guys like Ito he must be buying a new pair every month.   […]

Joyful Celebrations

While this was not YHC’s VQ, it certainly felt like it at Paradise. This was my 2nd Q of this week but my first one ever outside Briar Chapel (BC). This is a sign that YHC’s confidence as a Q is getting stronger, or perhaps that the damn Q sheets at BC are way too […]

Carrying Tables Is No Picnic

3 PAX took off for an EC 5K (actually 3.2 miles) in the gloom. 9 more PAX would be waiting for us as we came in.  YHC had a quick discussion with Walt to make sure no one else was supposed to have the Q after YHC volunteered last night after noticing a blank Q […]
