“Frickin’ idiots convention”

Posted on

I’m not sure why but Dr. Evil came to mind when I was reliving the morning workout.  Maybe it was the pinky (coupled with Goldmember) , as Golden Pinky lead the warm ups for the first time. Maybe its the geeky, bumbling ugly, bald guy that everyone inexplicably follows.  Maybe its the “frickin’ idiots convention” […]

Snuffing The Rooster

YHC arrived at the AO at 5:35, planning to sit comfortably in the warm car until launch time. But there was a lone PAX member patiently waiting in the 9-degree gloom. And not just any PAX member – it was an FNG. It takes a certain degree of willpower to overcome the fartsack every morning. […]

McDeucing at The Big House

Posted on

YHC checked his trusty weather app early this a.m., cringed, and debated cursing Mother Nature.  Got to The Big House to see Rambler’s auto (easy to identify with his new plates) already in the parking lot, and thought to myself, “Of course Rambler’s already here.”  Seven other men emerged from the shadows, Rambler returned from […]

The Sound and the Fury

8 PAX rode The Pine.  Every train needs a caboose, so I joined the crew this AM.  It really was 7 PAX running the Pine together and then one lonely guy pulling up the rear, his only company the 11 solitary degrees to give him warmth on the unforgiving yet salubrious Pine. An old wrestling […]

Warm up: 2 Loops around field at fellowship pace 20 leg swings for each leg Imperial walkers Clockwise loops around parking deck: […]

Be Driven

Nothing like an unreasonably cold morning and an equally unreasonable amount of Merkins to shake off the New Year’s Eve hangover. 3 PAX met for an early morning Ruck, 2 continued at 0520 and 1 joined 5 additional PAX for EC Pull-ups. 22 total PAX, including a great showing from our brothers out of Pleasantville, […]

Cold, Schmold. Modified Ladders and Coffeteria!

Without getting too Schmaltzy/Cheesy allow me some latitude if you will:   Every F3 Workout  provides a memorable moment.   A moment of Joy.     The moment that comes unexpected, and not looked for.   Part of the beauty of it is that it is not forced, it is natural, and flows out of […]

The Triple Nickel

After finishing the Master Q earlier this month, YHC realized he was extremely close to 50 Q’s for the year.  Although this was never a personal goal, 50 is a nice number to wrap up 2017 with.  7 other PAX joined YHC in 23 degree weather. Special thanks to Bushwood, who was kind enough to […]
