Three Runner in the rain

Have it Your Way (or not)

I wanted to Q today because my best friend died to the day and hour one year ago in Johnson City, Tennessee. It was my feeble attempt to take things that I knew about him and to create a kind of circuit workout. Warm-up: SSH 20, arm circles 10, Moroccan night clubs 10, slow jog […]

Satan’s set list

Prologue YHC has been on the DL repeatedly over the past year, finally figuring out that a herniated disk has been the source of my repeated relapses. I had to relinquish several Q’s during the past year, and have hesitated to put myself back on Q sheets until I could prove my back would withstand […]

YHC brought his new found maturity to the HB for the first time. I was quickly reminded that HB doesn’t really care about any of that. The air was crisp, the counting was subpar, and the mumble-chatter was ever present. I reminded everyone that the next day was the anniversary of Pearl Harbor. I wanted […]

Where the Heck is the Moon?

It’s been a while since a workout at The Thicket has taken place down on the soccer field and YHC always enjoys working out down there—there’s just something about being on the grass that’s more enjoyable than the parking lot.  The night before, YHC faithfully designed the day’s workout and quickly jotted it down on […]

8 (well 9 — I’ll give Jinx some love too) showed up to wish YHC a happy 2 year F3 anniversary. Its been a fantastic journey and since our long lost PAX Golden Pinky started one week prior to YHC, I decided to reach out to him to see if we could do anything to […]

When Boucher put out the call on Slack for a Q this week, YHC jumped at the opportunity to lead Durham’s Premier Friday AO. It had been too long since YHC had had the reins. As YHC often does, YHC used Google Maps satellite images to help brainstorm and plan out a Q plan. This […]
