Better One Week Late Than Never

YHC was supposed to have the Q at TBR last week but ended up in COVID-19 quarantine.  Fortunately, Soybean picked up the Q last week for me and–through a series of switcheroo’s–I was able to pick up the Q today.  Sciatica pain has limited my running so today’s plan was to stay on Hooker Field […]

Can I Kick It? (Yes, You Can)

Can I kick it? If we’re being honest with ourselves, every man asks this question of himself – daily. Can I kick — at my job? Can I be a kick-__ husband, dad, son, brother, friend? Can I kick it (aka keep up / prove I’ve still got ‘it’) with the PAX in the gloom? […]

Before the start of ME, TBR Co-Site Q Bump Draft presented Uzi and YHC with […]

4 Years of TBR

Today was the 4 year anniversary of the launch of the Battering Ram. YHC was blessed enough to attend the maiden workout back in 2017. In fact, Bump Draft did a lot of work behind the scenes to organize the Q’s for EC and the ME.   Night Shift led a group of 9 through […]

Make Your Bed

Have you ever heard it said you should make your bed when you get up? Not by your mom when you were a child, but as an adult? If you make your bed in the morning, you will have accomplished the first task of the day. It will give you a small sense of pride, […]
