On the Ball, Ballers

Bell’s put out the call for a Q and YHC responded swiftly. With the NCAA championship game that night, there would be ample inspiration. As pre-blast, Q asked PAX to bring basketballs, if they got ’em.  WARM UP (With basketballs in hand) Round the feet IC x 10 x reverse Round the waist IC x […]

Greatest Hits at #TheBigDance

YHC saw the call for a Q at legendary AO The Big Dance, still dripping with legacy of Sweats and now in the able site-Q hands of Banana Split and Bells.  YHC has some great memories at The Big Dance from Pee Wee and the kettle bell EC sessions, the Peterson Murder Hills, Riggs discussion […]

Getting Reacquainted with Forest Hills

YHC hadn’t been to The Big Dance in 2020…Saw the Q Sheet was open and grabbed it.  Having moved ostensibly further from TBD, driving a new way, YHC got there in plenty of time for the 5:30 a.m. start…and then no one else was there.  Waited a few minutes…was it something YHC said on slack?  […]

Prodigal Son

Way back in summer and early fall of 2018, YHC was a quasi-regular at The Big Dance, an awesome site with lots of variety to offer. Then The Piranha opened in October 2018 about 1.5 miles from my house aaaand… hadn’t been back to The Big Dance since. So it was good to revisit the […]

Embrace the suck

4 PAX for the ME and 1 lonely PAX who got up too early and did a little recon EC for the Q.  YHC was glad to be back at TBD after a long hiatus, and just love this site for so many reasons.  After a week off at the coast, YHC was not too […]

2nd Times a Charm

On January 15 of this year I Q’d The Big Dance. It was my second site on my Global Post Challenge. We had a near miss with a Tesla during a round of Burp Back Mountain. Today was my second Q there. I came fully equipped with runners reflective strips, a head lamp, and all […]

Back and Forth

YHC was excited to Q his old Tuesday regular AO. Was struggling for a little bit of inspiration…and couldn’t get the idea of “back and forth” out of his mind…and got some encouragement to use animal movements by one of his daughters…Given it was 10/29, we were going to wok that into things as well.
