Cinematic Anniversary

Posted on

Two years ago, 12 men ventured into new territory to launch The Thicket. Today 23 PAX — who now have nine AOs in that once new territory of Chatham County — celebrated the anniversary in cinematic fashion. It had all the makings of a blockbuster: nostalgia, comedy, action sequences, special effects, a dynamic foe, plot […]

What is the Bear Block?

The BC neighborhood keeps growing, which means there are always new construction sites to explore. This morning’s QIC at The Wall took full advantage of a new undeveloped region, and did so in creative fashion, sending the PAX into their weekend in a cloud of dust – literally. WARMUP Arm Circles – forward and backwards […]

Four Years Later

Posted on

Four years ago on this day, YHC stood alone in a dark parking lot wondering what he had gotten himself into – and wondering if anyone else would show up. A handful of men appeared, then one who introduced himself as Wuerffel stepped into the circle to lead, and this is what he had in […]

Pyramid Scheme

Five did Murph EC training, and 13 PAX attended the main event. Time change and a cold and rainy setting kept the numbers down, which was the ideal size to enter what now may be referred to as The Heptagon … Warm up: – Side Shuffle Hop (in cadence x25) – Merkins (in cadence x20) […]

Four PAX Warm-O-Rama: Imperial Squat Walkers (x20) Angle […]

Burping the Baby

YHC welcomed his first 2.0 into the world 22 days ago — an incredible, life-changing event.

Four PAX did EC hill sprints, eight PAX did EC pullups, and then 16 men total took the risk of pouring rain, and only had a little bit of a drizzle in the air and puddles on the ground to deal with – well, that and what QIC had in store. Warmup SSH x 25 […]

Fake it until you become it

Hard to believe that it’s been only one month since YHC’s last Q at The Rabbit. Since then, YHC has posted at a couple of AOs in New Orleans (F3NOLA), a few times around some of the new F3Churham AOs, but has been mainly immersed in other activities, including Christmas celebrations, family travels, the beginning […]

Passing Bricks

Stand in the hallway. 15m to workout. Look at the pile. Polypro Ts and heavy sweatpants and Mudgear and capiline longsleeves and jackets and hoodies and 2- no, 3- pairs of gloves. Grab about half – something long, something short, something heavy, something with a hood, a hat, thick socks, out the door, 13m to […]
