Honoring Heroes

Posted on

Today at The Thicket I decided to re-purpose the ME to complete a “Murph”. What is a Murph you may ask? The Murph is a Crossfit WOD to honor Michael Patrick “Murph” Murphy – a United States Navy SEAL officer who was awarded the U.S. military’s highest decoration, the Medal of Honor, for his actions […]

Super Monday Double Dora

I was absolutely jazzed last week when I realized I had signed up to Q #thethicket the morning after Super Bowl 54! What a stroke of luck that this slot was still open on the Q sheet! How is it that fortune smiles on me at every turn? Yes, lady luck was in my corner […]

All the smells and feels

YHC signed up to Q the Jag several weeks ago primarily driven by the Tuesdays on Ice challenge (bonus points for Qing both participating AOs). But the prospect of Qing the AO with the finest, smoothest pavement in all of F3 Churham is always a draw for me. But today the warm and fuzzies weren’t […]
