EMOM In The Rain

Posted on

6 PAX got together for a wet and rainy EC ruck that involved fording some waterways and navigating a downed tree (full disclosure the water was ankle deep and standing and the tree was not very big) but it still felt like the Oregon Trail! 19 PAX were on hand for the ME. Warmup: Arm […]

Thankful to be there

Posted on

Although we all try to bring our best to every Q, we’ve got a bit of a tradition of bringing some real A-game to your F3-versary Q. Maybe you build a theme around your favorite exercises, maybe you replay your first post, maybe you dream up something entirely new. With that in mind, YHC pondered […]

Won’t You Be My Neighbor

Posted on

Chatter on the Pleasantville channel last night had several HCs for an EC 5K. With a wide range of excuses for fartsacking, Homes was the only man to show and pounded out his miles in advance of the ME. 14 PAX assembled in the humid, damp, muggy remnants of one hell of a storm. No […]

No Man Left Behind

Posted on

19 PAX came out for a fairly standard circuit-style F3 workout, with one minor twist.  “No Man Left Behind” meant instead of “planking it out” when a set is complete, the faster PAX had to keep doing that exercise until the last man was finished, which more often than not, was YHC.  On the other […]

The Pursuit of a Balanced Life

Posted on

I am often internally torn between two forces. On one front – I am a pragmatist. I am obsessed with the pursuit of efficiency. So much so that I often enjoy the process of making myself more efficient more than I do whatever it is I’m supposed to be doing. However, contrary to that, I […]

Coco-less Q

Posted on

17 PAX assembled with anticipation looking forward to what was likely to be their last Coco beat-down before he heads out to establish F3 SLC. As 0545 approached without a silver Camry screaming around the corner, it became apparent something was amiss. Turns out Coco had made a valiant attempt to drive straight thru from a […]

I Need A Second Skin

Posted on

“I need a second skin. Something to hold me up. Can’t do it on my own. Sometimes I need just a little more help. I’ve got that chance to give, every drop that’s left in me. I need a second skin. Something I cannot break free of.” M. Zapata, M. Dresdner, A. Kessler, J. Moriarty. I […]
