4 corners, speed, teamwork

Posted on

It is a wonderful time of year.  School is getting ready to start, NFL and college football seasons are gearing up, fall is around the corner, and we can all get back to our annual ritual of over-analysis, trash-talking, and speculation surrounding a new college basketball season.  Because let’s be real, we live in NC […]

Cardiac Laps for All

Posted on

Tobacco Road has been putting up strong PAX numbers (for us) for the past 2 months, and as such there are quite a few new faces in the crowd.  In order to properly welcome all the new-comers I decided it was time to take the Q and introduce them all the the CardiacLaps.  One of […]

This Must Be The Place

Posted on

18 PAX posted in the humid gloom for a Thursday beatdown from YHC. After co-Qing last week at TRoad with Boucher (Durham’s premier AO), I didn’t want to have too much of a repeat this week. I spent some time yesterday afternoon looking at recent backblasts for some inspiration. Floyd’s “Making it up as I […]

A Brick/Boucher Beatdown at Tobacco Road

Posted on

YHC and Brick had been discussing a potential Q swap for Tobacco Road.  YHC has been feeling inspired by his fellow Churham Pax to get some Qs in and he’s headed out west for a week on Saturday.  YHC inadvertently went back to back Qs at HoP then Tobacco Road.  YHC and Brick’s communication challenges […]

Just running around in Squares

Posted on

On a nice warm Thursday morning, 15 PAX including 1.5 FNGs enjoyed running around in squares.  A co-worker of mine, now forever known as Sequel, attended his second F3 workout.  He was a 1/2 an FNG because he has posted before but did not get named.  That’s fixed now.  A second very special welcome to […]

Running Chicago

Posted on

My brother played soccer in high school and one of his favorite drills was called “Chicago”. Basically, the team ran around the field, sprinting one, two, three, then all four sides of the field. It’s unclear how the name “Chicago” was assigned. Some say Harry Caray did this as a pre-game workout, wearing only a […]

Stars & Stripes

Posted on

The energy was high as YHC rolled into Tobacco Road primed to honor Ol’ Glory on Flag Day.  YHC was pleased to see that there were 9 others waiting with shared enthusiasm including an FNG rocking a U.S. Navy shirt and admitting that he liked physical punishment.  He picked the perfect day for a patriotic […]

Making it up as I go…

Posted on

9 PAX posted in the humid gloom for a Thursday beatdown from YHC. The main thing I wanted to do today was to give the PAX a ready made Q in the event that they are called in for a last-minute Q and don’t know what to do. I told them that nothing was planned […]
