A Busted Arm Leads to Sore Legs

Posted on

17 PAX showed up on the first real fall morning. Temps in the 40’s were cold to start but absolutely fantastic once we got going. So excited at the idea that the humidity may be behind us.  YHC is suffering from bursitis of the elbow. I am on the mend but am still supposed to […]

Don’t Bullshit Me!

Posted on

The light, misty rain did not deter the Briar Chapel faithful from entering the Gloom this morning.  As usual, numbers were high. Twenty-four PAX showed up to collectively conquer the Wall.  YHC had the pleasure of receiving an EC one-hour ruck tour from Rambler prior to  getting down to business at 5:45 AM.  Then the […]

OCL Elevator to Kick Off Oktoberfest

If you can’t do it, don’t Q it.    Keeping this in mind YHC planned the workout.   Running is not one of YHC’s favorite exercises.    During a running evolution if the PAX hear a plodding, gasping, rattling, coughing sound (kind of like an Old Ford Pinto trying to climb a step hill) that would […]

YHC and horny toad ensured that Briar Chapel was safe during their EC Ruck in the early morn’. Horny toad and Boyardee did some EC Murph training while YHC setup some thangs in the courtyard behind The Big House. And then it was time to VQ 28 PAX (gulp!). Warmup: SSH x20 IC Imperial Walker […]

We can count to twenty!

Thirteen PAX moseyed into the gloomidity for an impromptu Q from YHC. It makes you realize that simple is often better, and it didn’t hurt that I went to sleep thinking about what I’d bring to the table at my next Cougar Q. We missed you, Boo Boo! Warm-up: SSH (ICx25) Imperial Walkers (ICx20) Windmills […]

Rabbit-Goat Convergence Round 1

Posted on

YHC pulled into the Clubhouse for the convergence of the Rabbit and the Goat.  The air was super thick with humidity, so it looked like this was going to be a pretty damp trip along the trails.  We were getting anxious awaiting the arrival of Wuerffel and the rest of the Goat PAX.  Vandelay arrived […]
