The next exercise is: The Chuckle Hut!

Like so many good things, it started as a joke. Scappy’s pre-blast noted YHC’s yukking it up from the cheap seats during most workouts since return from hip replacement IR. Guilty. There was a mild implication that this might change somewhat with YHC at the helm. It did not. In fact, we doubled down on […]

The Gloom Dial Reads….10 years and Counting

(BB here: https://f3raleigh.com/bull-city-enters-beast-mode). I got my ass kicked. I barely was able to drive home. Not sure at the time […]

Want to go far…go together

On the heels of YHC’s 4th year anniversary I returned back to the site where it all started, Tobacco Road.  One of Churham’s original sites, it has earned a reputation as one of Sodu’s premier AO’s.  It’s no wonder after one post I was hooked.  The mumblechatter, workouts, and location are addictive. Today was about […]

07/21/2022 Tobacco Road – Viva le Tour de Tobacco Rd!

Viva le Tour de Tobacco Rd! The Tour de France is in full swing and it never disappoints. I I get sucked in to many hours of coverage a day, not just for the beautiful scenery, announcers with soothing accents, or the nap-inducing monotony. The athletes who participate are quite impressive. Three things always stand […]
