Back Blast – The Chopper at Vets – 10/15/2021

I always love going to AOs that I don’t call “home.” I’ve been doing a lot of run training lately so that has certainly limited my abilities to travel. So, I was excited to hit the road and visit the men at Vets last Friday for the annual Nantan audit. As noted in my pre-blast,Continue reading “Back Blast – The Chopper at Vets – 10/15/2021”

Pre-Blast – Jolly Rancher Q – Chopper at Vets – 10/15/2021

Capstone workout of the week will be at Vets tomorrow. Come on out and join me. I’ll also be completing my annual audit of Vets and the PAX that call this AO their home. Sadly, my last visit was almost 6-months ago and I need to make sure things are still on track. I’ll beContinue reading “Pre-Blast – Jolly Rancher Q – Chopper at Vets – 10/15/2021”

Back Blast – Incubator @ Posh – 09/13/2021

Posting on a Monday has become a necessity for me to help start the week off right. If I fartsack on Monday, then it’s that much easier to fartsack on Tuesday…then Wednesday, etc. That said, when Stick Up reached out and asked me to pick up a Q, I obliged. Time was called and disclaimersContinue reading “Back Blast – Incubator @ Posh – 09/13/2021”

Back Blast – 09/11/2021 – 20 Years Later – The Nest @ The County.

A few months ago I looked ahead and saw that a September 11 Q was open at The Nest. For those that regularly follow me [I don’t have anyone to call out like Pelican does], you may have picked up on the pattern that I love Qing and posting at The Nest. So, this pairedContinue reading “Back Blast – 09/11/2021 – 20 Years Later – The Nest @ The County.”

Preblast – Jolly Rancher Q – Incubator at Posh – 09/12/2021

It’s been a hot minute since I’ve Q’ed over at Posh. That said I couldn’t say no to Stick Up for calling me out to sign up for a Q. Unfortunately for the PAX, Monday is run training. So, we will be doing a fair share of it for the weinke. Nothing too crazy thoughContinue reading “Preblast – Jolly Rancher Q – Incubator at Posh – 09/12/2021”

Pre-blast – 09/11 Anniversary Q – 20 Years Later – The County – 09/11/2021

For many, the events of 09/11 will forever be our generation’s Pearl Harbor, JFK assassination, or MLK assassination. We’ll always remember where we were when we first were notified of the tragic events that would continue to unfold in the days thereafter. It all started at 08:46am when the North Tower of WTC was hitContinue reading “Pre-blast – 09/11 Anniversary Q – 20 Years Later – The County – 09/11/2021”

Backblast – The Max @ Bayside – 09/07/2021

It’s always a great drive down US 60 to head over to Bayside. There’s always zero traffic at 0-dark-thirty in the morning headed that way. It’s just the wildlife you have to be careful of – and I didn’t have any issues this morning. At 0530am, Ruby was sauntering out of his truck but IContinue reading “Backblast – The Max @ Bayside – 09/07/2021”

Preblast – Jolly Rancher Q – The Max @ Bayside – 09/07/2021

Tuesday Q after a long holiday weekend. And the one long holiday weekend that also happens to be the opening of college football. The opening of college football on a long holiday weekend that my Louisville Cardinals don’t kick off until 8pm on Monday night. This could either suck or be really easy. The outcomeContinue reading “Preblast – Jolly Rancher Q – The Max @ Bayside – 09/07/2021”

Back Blast – Wisteria @ Pleasantville – 08/06/2021

Rolled into Pleasantville with a few headlights and cars in the circle, which is always a great sign. Rolled in and was great to see Mankini coming back out – and lucky for him I had a coupon with his name on it in my trunk! Disclaimers provided at 0530am as YNot emerged from hisContinue reading “Back Blast – Wisteria @ Pleasantville – 08/06/2021”

Back Blast – Jolly’s Postiversary – The Loco at The County – 08/03/2021

Yes, I’m delinquent in the back blast. I don’t really have any great excuses. I’ll admit that the workout itself was nothing fancy or extraordinary…so, I’m not even really going to talk about that. But, this workout was a milestone for me and I wanted to try and make this back blast more than justContinue reading “Back Blast – Jolly’s Postiversary – The Loco at The County – 08/03/2021”

Back Blast – F3 and BMR Convergence – 07/24/2021!

The first of what is hopefully many opportunities to converge with Black Men Run in the Louisville area is complete. The weather was beautiful, the location was perfect, the mumblechatter was high, and the encouragement during the workout was strong to quite strong. We started the day off with a pre-ruck, led by Handbook –Continue reading “Back Blast – F3 and BMR Convergence – 07/24/2021!”

Pre-Blast – BMR + F3 Convergence – 07/24/2021 @ Big Four Bridge

Saturday is sure to be a great day for two organizations in Louisville that push this community to grow better men. In what is to my knowledge the first of its kind, we’re having a convergence style workout that brings together F3Louisville and Black Men Running, or BMR. BMR is a group that focuses onContinue reading “Pre-Blast – BMR + F3 Convergence – 07/24/2021 @ Big Four Bridge”

Backblast – Wisteria at Pleasantville – 07/16/2021

Great morning as always at Pleasantville. My Top Ten list in the pre-blast (which I don’t think anyone that showed up actually read) spoke all truth about why I love this place. For those that haven’t been recently, you should make a trip. Would also be awesome if you could EH some FNG residents ofContinue reading “Backblast – Wisteria at Pleasantville – 07/16/2021”

Pre-blast – Jolly Rancher Q – Wisteria @ Pleasantville – 07/16/2021

I thought I’d give you the top ten reasons to post at Pleasantville tomorrow with me – David Letterman style: 10. No coupons required for those that have somehow managed to survive the pandemic without actually keeping one in your car. 9. Pleasantville offers the Q almost anything you could want to incorporate into yourContinue reading “Pre-blast – Jolly Rancher Q – Wisteria @ Pleasantville – 07/16/2021”

Back Blast – Kapowski at Bayside – 07/01/2021

Bayside has been on fire lately – they’re getting pretty much double digit PAX attendance for each of the regularly scheduled WOs, and today was no different with 11. And, they’re really great about throwing out a BlackOps or two a week on top of those. These men know how to get busy! Shame theContinue reading “Back Blast – Kapowski at Bayside – 07/01/2021”

Pre-blast – Jolly Rancher Q – Kapowski at Bayside – 07/01/2021

Tomorrow marks the beginning of the second half of the year. If you didn’t accomplish what you had in store for the first half of the year, then consider tomorrow your new start. Looks like it will be a cool and balmy 70 degrees or so – which also mirrors the chance of rain. WhoContinue reading “Pre-blast – Jolly Rancher Q – Kapowski at Bayside – 07/01/2021”

Back Blast – The Motivator at The Abyss – 06/28/2021

Not going to say it was easy getting up this morning, but I definitely needed it this morning. So, it was good that I picked up the Q yesterday to force myself out of bed. PAX: Air Raid (R) Abacus Uncle Sam (R) Kitty Litter Flip Flop Jolly Rancher (Q) Disclaimers were provided just asContinue reading “Back Blast – The Motivator at The Abyss – 06/28/2021”

Pre-blast – Jolly Rancher Q – Motivator at The Abyss!

I needed a reason and accountability to make sure I posted tomorrow. So, when Flip Flop threw out an open Q was available at The Abyss, I jumped on it. Nothing fancy for tomorrow in store. Just work. Bring a coupon and a friend to the AO with the best sunrise in town. SYITG! JollyContinue reading “Pre-blast – Jolly Rancher Q – Motivator at The Abyss!”

Back Blast – The Ruiner @ The O – 06/12/2021

Great day for a workout where things all started for F3 Louisville. Enjoyed the good mumblechatter with Stick Up and Harry Caray in the extra credit ruck, too. Time was called and disclaimers provided. It was great to see YNot back out for a second helping of fun after posting for the first time onContinue reading “Back Blast – The Ruiner @ The O – 06/12/2021”

Pre-Blast – Jolly Rancher Q – The Ruiner at The O – 06/12/2021

I don’t make it out to The O very often, but it’s no surprise that the first shovel flag of F3 Louisville was planted at Seneca Park. That place is awesome and it is HOPPING every single morning I’m there. So, I plan to take advantage of this opportunity to take in all of theContinue reading “Pre-Blast – Jolly Rancher Q – The Ruiner at The O – 06/12/2021”

Back Blast – County’s 3-Year Anniversary Party – Jolly Rancher Q – 06/08/2021

About 3-months ago, I was randomly staring at the original County AO flag and I realized it was planted on June 8, 2018. So, inevitably a celebration was in order for June 8, 2021. And, when I looked at the calendar that far out, naturally it was still open so I scooped it up fromContinue reading “Back Blast – County’s 3-Year Anniversary Party – Jolly Rancher Q – 06/08/2021”

Pre-blast – The County Turns 3! – Jolly Rancher Q at The Loco – 06/08/2021

…from the O, which was the birthplace of F3 Louisville, a few PAX decided to lead a starfish effort off of Poshlands to plant a new shovel flag in Oldham County. After a few BlackOps at Crestwood Elementary, things moved a little back towards Jefferson County where a few more BlackOps determined that St. AloysiusContinue reading “Pre-blast – The County Turns 3! – Jolly Rancher Q at The Loco – 06/08/2021”

Back Blast – Gladiator @ The Abyss – 06/04/2021

Uncle Sam reached out and asked if I’d be interested in leading at The Abyss. Since they’re now back to 0530am start times, it was an easy answer to his question. There’s not many AOs that are as unique as The Abyss with the pond and the fog that emerges at this time of theContinue reading “Back Blast – Gladiator @ The Abyss – 06/04/2021”

Backblast – Memorial Day Murph at The County – 05/31/2021

Another great day for F3 Louisville where a BlackOps Murph opportunity at The County was thrown out there and 16 brave PAX showed up to tackle the challenge along with me. This year was much easier than last year where we had to modify the set because the playground was closed due to COVID. So,Continue reading “Backblast – Memorial Day Murph at The County – 05/31/2021”

Back Blast – Wisteria @ Pleasantville – 05/28/2021

Whitney was on the DL and didn’t have a Q yet and nobody else jumped on it which means I scooped it up. Asian Zing would be the lone soldier to post with me, which was perfectly fine with me. Time was called and we mosey’d over half way around the circle and stopped forContinue reading “Back Blast – Wisteria @ Pleasantville – 05/28/2021”

Pre-blast – Jolly Rancher Q – The Gladiator @ The Abyss – 06/04/2021

The Abyss is back to normal operating hours starting at 0530am. That said, nobody has any more excuses that they need more sleep to not show up for the HIM that call the darkest AO in F3 Louisville their home. Weather forecast implies it’ll finally be dry again, too. So, come join me at TheContinue reading “Pre-blast – Jolly Rancher Q – The Gladiator @ The Abyss – 06/04/2021”

Pre-blast – Murph BlackOps at The County – 🇺🇸 Memorial Day 🇺🇸 – 05/31/2021

No secrets here. Just do it. Weight vest or ruck is optional. Can break up the exercises or do them all straight through. Given that we are doing pull ups, we will meet at the playground behind the school. Start time will be holiday hours – so start time at 0700. Plenty of time toContinue reading “Pre-blast – Murph BlackOps at The County – 🇺🇸 Memorial Day 🇺🇸 – 05/31/2021”
