Back Blast – BlackOps at Chapel Lake Park – 08/04/2020

I had to adjust my alarms a little bit this morning to make sure I would rise from the fartsack in time to meet up with Captain Crunchberry to clown car across the river.  Google Maps told me 28 minutes to Chapel Lake Park from my house – so, decided to schedule the clown carContinue reading “Back Blast – BlackOps at Chapel Lake Park – 08/04/2020”

Pre-Blast – BlackOps at Chapel Lake Park with Jolly Rancher – 08/04/2020

I get it:  the name of our region is F3 Louisville…not F3 Southern Indiana. But, as much as we like to poke fun at our neighbors to the north [or, maybe that’s just me?], they are part of Louisville just as much as I am because I don’t even live in Jefferson County.  So, callContinue reading “Pre-Blast – BlackOps at Chapel Lake Park with Jolly Rancher – 08/04/2020”

Pre-Blast – 2nd Postiversary Q with Jolly @ The Nest – 08/01/2020

Technically, my 2nd Postiversary is on Sunday, August 2.  But, I’m like a giddy little school boy who wants to celebrate early vs. late and was too lazy to schedule a BlackOps on a Sunday.  Plus, The Nest [surprisingly] was open so I jumped on it early. This weekend is the Outrunning, Outbiking, Outgolfing, orContinue reading “Pre-Blast – 2nd Postiversary Q with Jolly @ The Nest – 08/01/2020”

Back Blast – Station @ Inferno – 07/16/2020

Beautiful morning at The Station as always. Co-piloted for Airplane at last minute – because I love Qing. But, I didn’t realize it until now that I think this is the second time I’ve now subbed for Airplane on his last two scheduled Qs. I asked him again if he had a weinke as heContinue reading “Back Blast – Station @ Inferno – 07/16/2020”

Back Blast – Silo @ North Posh – 07/13/2020

I hate Mondays. I’m not sure why but it’s just hard to get up and get motivated. But, Monday is also weigh in day for the #weightright challenge. And that means one last chance to burn off some calories before weigh in (don’t worry – I’m always consistent in weighing in after working out…so itContinue reading “Back Blast – Silo @ North Posh – 07/13/2020”

Jolly Rancher Q – North Posh – 07/13/2020

I know what you are thinking – you must need to go see an eye doctor. Is that really Jolly Rancher who signed up to Q at North Posh? Why in the world would Jolly Rancher Q Beastmode at North Posh?!? He’s not a beast. While that may be true, I also know that theContinue reading “Jolly Rancher Q – North Posh – 07/13/2020”

Back Blast – Circuit Work at the Loco – 07/07/2020

As always, it was another great morning with the PAX at the County.  I arrived a little early to set up some of the LED flashing lights with the exercises at the various stations around campus.  I ran into Crock Pot as he was gathering some coupons for PAX that don’t yet have their own. Continue reading “Back Blast – Circuit Work at the Loco – 07/07/2020”

Back Blast – Jolly Rancher’s Tour of Pleasantville – 07/03/2020

What a great morning, but like any other day there were problems. You see, Airplane had a passport issue and was grounded with a sick 2.0 last night – so, he called me to see if I’d be interested in picking up his flight…errr, Q…at Pleasantville this morning.  So, that was problem number one. SecondContinue reading “Back Blast – Jolly Rancher’s Tour of Pleasantville – 07/03/2020”

Back Blast – Agony at the County – 06/11/2020

I missed the pre-blasts and back-blasts during the quarantine period. It’s good to be able to acknowledge and memorialize all of the CSAUP things we do in the morning. Weather was great. PAX participating included: Brown WaterColonel KlinkFockerTidwellCratchitMa BellJerry Maguire (R)GiseleLaunchpad (R)CochranLe PewFungiStick UpBulletin (R)Jolly Rancher (Q) Time was called at 0530 and announcements andContinue reading “Back Blast – Agony at the County – 06/11/2020”

Pre-Blast – Jolly Rancher Q – The Agony @ The County

It’s been a while since I had to write a pre-blast…so long that I had to hack into my own account as I forgot my password.  Clearly, I prevailed. And, the good news is I didn’t forget how to lead a beat down having led several over the quarantine period.  So, come on out andContinue reading “Pre-Blast – Jolly Rancher Q – The Agony @ The County”

Back Blast : Planetarium @ Boondocks – 03/24/2020

Great day for a workout this morning. Weather was great, but company of the PAX that showed up made it even better.   PAX: Focker Holy Roller (R) Colonel Klink Brown Water Ma Bell Cratchit Fear Factor Cochran Bulletin (R) Jolly Rancher (Q)   COP: Disclaimers provided. Headed out on a mosey to the concessionContinue reading “Back Blast : Planetarium @ Boondocks – 03/24/2020”

Pre-Blast : Planetarium @ Boondocks – 03/24/2020

The Boondocks, or “boonies” for short, is a great place for social distancing.  So, come on out and join me in the gloom. Weinke is not yet finalized, but the current restrictions make it a little hard to be too creative.  So, you can expect some running and body work exercises.  We will be respectingContinue reading “Pre-Blast : Planetarium @ Boondocks – 03/24/2020”

Back Blast – Foundry (run heavy, not iron heavy) – 03/18/2020

Enjoyed making it out to the gloom on Wednesday for a non-heavy, heavy. Instead of heavy iron it was a heavy run day. Just like Muhammad Ali, just bob and weave with all the punches life throws at you and Qing a WO is really no different. PAX: Fructose Hush Puppy Wide Right Cratchit DauberContinue reading “Back Blast – Foundry (run heavy, not iron heavy) – 03/18/2020”

Pre-Blast – Foundry [without the Iron] – 03/18/2020

When the Leadership Council advised no coupons, Dauber [Foundry Site Q] and I started chatting to figure out how a heavy workout is even possible.  Sure, we could use ruck sacks – but not everyone has them.  Sure, we can ask everyone to bring a weight – but not everyone has them.  The benefit ofContinue reading “Pre-Blast – Foundry [without the Iron] – 03/18/2020”

Back Blast – Celebration Day @ the Nest – 03/14/2020

Celebration Day 2020.  What a day. For those that aren’t aware, my son Samuel passed away on March 15, 2018 after a long battle with heart disease related issues.  The battle was a long hard fought battle for him as well as the army of people that helped us during those times in caring forContinue reading “Back Blast – Celebration Day @ the Nest – 03/14/2020”

Pre-Blast – Celebration Day at The Nest – 03/14/2020

As the title has it, tomorrow is the 2nd Annual Celebration Day with ‘ol Jolly Rancher Q’ing at The Nest.  For those that were not able to attend the 1st Celebration Day last year at The Chopper, you’ll have to join me in the gloom to figure out what we’ll be celebrating together. The NestContinue reading “Pre-Blast – Celebration Day at The Nest – 03/14/2020”

Back Blast – The Inferno @ The Station – 03/12/2020

This was my first Q at The Inferno since being named an official AO [or at least I think it is].  It was good to get back out to this AO and lead because it is just like home and seems like work travels have kept me away from it for the past month.  Plus,Continue reading “Back Blast – The Inferno @ The Station – 03/12/2020”

Pre-Blast : The Inferno @ The Station for a Jolly Good Time – 03/12/2020

A small group from The County has been doing some extra credit and BlackOps running lately – and I’ve been able to join a few times and I’ve enjoyed it. So, guess what? Run heavy tomorrow. Bring the shoes and lace ‘em up. Bring gloves, too, just in case we run into some coupons orContinue reading “Pre-Blast : The Inferno @ The Station for a Jolly Good Time – 03/12/2020”

Back Blast – Agony @ the County : 02/27/2020

It felt good to get back out in the gloom on Thursday after a few weeks off. My body tells me otherwise, but that’s nothing new really. Weather was a little chilly but not terrible. Good company though so the weather didn’t bother me. PAX: Colonel Klink Focker Viking Mama’s Boy Wildflower Airplane Potter HolyContinue reading “Back Blast – Agony @ the County : 02/27/2020”

Pre-Blast – Agony @ the County w/ Jolly Rancher!

I haven’t posted since February 15 and I’m not afraid to admit that I miss the gloom. For those non-math majors or anybody that isn’t named Abacus, that’s almost 2-weeks of ghosting the gloom.  I wish I could say it was due to the warmth of the fartsack, but it was life and work obligationsContinue reading “Pre-Blast – Agony @ the County w/ Jolly Rancher!”

Back Blast – The Silo @ North Posh – 02/10/2020

My 2.0 decided to throw a party last night – two separate ones, with the first starting around midnight and the second around 4am.  Needless to say, when the alarm went off to roll out of bed this morning it was difficult. But, I was scheduled to Q.  Which means I had no choice becauseContinue reading “Back Blast – The Silo @ North Posh – 02/10/2020”

Pre-Blast – The Silo @ North Posh – 02/10/2020

I have a love-hate relationship with Mondays. There are rarely times that I actually look forward to Monday – normally that’s when it’s a national summer holiday like Memorial Day or Labor Day.  Outside of the holidays, Monday means it’s a work day – and, the beginning of a work week at that. But, youContinue reading “Pre-Blast – The Silo @ North Posh – 02/10/2020”

Back Blast – Wisteria @ Pleasantville – 02/07/2020

Alarm went off on Friday and I really didn’t want to get up.  But, being the Site Q at Wisteria I really have no choice.  Grabbed my phone to check the weather so I can plan my gear accordingly – found a text message from Flounder that he sent while I was snoozing [at aboutContinue reading “Back Blast – Wisteria @ Pleasantville – 02/07/2020”

Back Blast – Long Run BlackOps – 01/20/2020

The Long Run BlackOps fills a unique hole in F3Louisville, but it is like a well kept secret for some reason in spite of Mr. Hat and the crew continually beating the drum to get this thing firing on all cylinders.  The unique hole is that it begins at 0500 vs. the usual 0530. Yes,Continue reading “Back Blast – Long Run BlackOps – 01/20/2020”

Pre-Blast : Long Run BlackOps @ 0500 : 01/20/2020

Looking forward to joining the men of the Long Run BlackOps tomorrow morning. Yes, it is going to be cold. Yes, it starts a little earlier than other WOs scheduled on Monday. But, that means you can enjoy that much more coffee afterwards before you go to work. Or, a few extra minutes in theContinue reading “Pre-Blast : Long Run BlackOps @ 0500 : 01/20/2020”

Back Blast – #250 at Cloverfield – 01/16/2020

It snuck up on me, but yesterday at The Foundry [according to the Weasel Shaker] was my 250th post at F3.  So, today was a bit of a personal celebration of that milestone. I remember it like it was yesterday when PK and I met up for dinner to catch-up and he was talking toContinue reading “Back Blast – #250 at Cloverfield – 01/16/2020”

Pre-Blast – Cloverfield – 01/16/2020 – Jolly’s VQ at the Garden!

Flounder went crazy on me yesterday and sent a pre-blast for Cloverfield and THEN checked the calendar to see if it was open.  Too late, Flounder, because Jolly’s got this one on lockdown – including a celebration of post #250-ish! So, I encourage you to come on out to The Garden on Thursday and seeContinue reading “Pre-Blast – Cloverfield – 01/16/2020 – Jolly’s VQ at the Garden!”

Back-Blast – Peggy Baker Park – 01/14/2020 – #RyleighStrong

Several weeks ago I snatched up several Qs for the quarter to make sure I met my Iron Horse Challenge requirements.  I overachieved in the month of January on purpose and put a lot of Qs out there to force myself to post.  Work will inevitably be an easy excuse in February and March.  So,Continue reading “Back-Blast – Peggy Baker Park – 01/14/2020 – #RyleighStrong”

Pre-Blast – Peggy Baker Park – 01/14/2020

This is a little test to see who reads pre-blasts – and how much of a dedicated PAX you are. Free coffee to any other non-County PAX that shows up at Peggy Baker Park tomorrow.  If you don’t do it for free coffee, do it for #RyleighStrong. WEAR GREEN!  And, bring gloves for ground and couponContinue reading “Pre-Blast – Peggy Baker Park – 01/14/2020”
