Endure: the IronPAX Challenge Week 1 – Rameses

Posted on

Alternate title: The day in which YHC begins to question this whole ‘5 days of Q’ thing…   A humid-ass morning brought 6 brave souls out to run the pine, 3 daring adventurers to ruck the Pine, and 18 strong men out to take on week 1 of the Iron PAX challenge… Let’s get right […]

Feel the (Barry) Burn

Posted on

Three turned out for the Pine on this sultry Wednesday morning and, after a pit stop for a second shirt, launched into the Main Event. YHC was delighted to see that there was a Q opportunity during the week of the Open Championship, one of the premiere sporting events of the year. Sorry, soccer fans, […]

The Prime Factorization of America

Posted on

4 PAX got up early in the soup for a few trips up Lone Pine.  Kudos to Vespa for his virgin trips on the Pine.   Warm-Up: SSH x50 BWS x13 Arm Circles (forward and reverse) x10 WMH x10   The Thang: YHC wanted to do something with the number 242 in honor of America’s […]

Round Robin

Posted on

5 brave souls answered the sweet siren call of Lone Pine and 14 PAX reported for the ME. YHC used a little crowd sourcing to plan today’s beatdown.  Tip of the cap to both Bell’s and Soybean for the inspiration.  Remember kids, always cite your sources. Warm-up SSH x 20 (IC) WMH x 10 (IC) […]

A Fetzer Revival

Posted on

 2 years ago to the day, YHC arrived at the Fetzer AO (now known as Kenan) as a FNG with no idea what he was getting himself into.  This was an era before there were 24 sites across Churham to choose from on any given day and numbers were correspondingly high.  So many PAX were […]

The Theatre presents Dora

A fantastic morning with humidity finally down so there were no excuses for fartsacking today. 10 brave souls showed up at 5:00 to tackle the Pine. All 10 did two trips up the Pine today.  Returning to OEC, we found 9 more PAX for a total of 19 ready for Rameses.  We started with a […]

Team Coupon Carries up THWM

Posted on

5 decided they were primed for pine time this morning and took to the Pine with humility and humidity.  There’s nothing like embarking on a Pine run only to realize that running up the hill to exit OEC is a chore in and of itself.  In any case, we persisted and survived today’s Pine. On […]

3 Mile 300

Posted on

YHC’s simple goal for this morning was to cover 3 miles and complete 300 reps (not including anything during warm up or Mary).  Although we hit the 300 mark for our reps, perhaps choosing to run THWM was not the optimal route for hitting the 3 mile mark.  We managed to cover less than 1.5 […]

Time is a flat circle

Posted on

YHC declined the Pine this morning so was intent on staying away from THWM so as to not unfairly burden the 5 brave souls who opted in.  In light of this diminished arsenal and a recent focus from the PAX on running forwards in a straight line to prepare for the Tar Heel 10 miler/double-down, […]
