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”

Back Blast – The Nest at The County – 05/22/2021

Saturday workouts are still my favorite. Perhaps it’s the 60-minutes of suck. Or, perhaps it is because everyone is that much more awake so the mumblechatter is that much more lively. Or, is it the 2.0s that typically make their way with their dads out to The Nest? Maybe it’s a little of each ofContinue reading “Back Blast – The Nest at The County – 05/22/2021”

Pre-Blast – The Nest at The County – 05/22/2021

I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again – but, the Nest at The County is special. Don’t know why yet? Then come on out tomorrow and find out for yourself. BRING YOUR RUCK. If you have extras, bring them, too, for others that may not have one, please. We’ll stay on campus soContinue reading “Pre-Blast – The Nest at The County – 05/22/2021”

Back Blast – The Chopper at Vets – 05/21/2021

As noted in my pre-blast, there’s something calming about posting at the Vets. Perhaps it’s the gentle soothing noise of Meatball’s cadence of passing gas. Or, perhaps it’s Violet’s authoritarian voice which calms all fears. Or, maybe it’s Worm’s constant bickering and moaning about actually doing a work out. Either way, it’s always a goodContinue reading “Back Blast – The Chopper at Vets – 05/21/2021”

Delayed Back Blast – Moonshiner at The Boondocks – 05/13/2021

A little delayed on the back blast…maybe writing back blasts are kind of like wedding gifts. You have a full year after the wedding to deliver the gift. Let’s go with that. That makes me feel a little better about my tardiness. PAX: Swag Honey Do Flexseal Bulletin (R) Dauber Cratchit Tidwell Yankovic (R) BossContinue reading “Delayed Back Blast – Moonshiner at The Boondocks – 05/13/2021”

Pre-Blast – Jolly Rancher Q – Moonshiner @ Boondocks – 05/13/2021

Picked up this Q a long time ago when Captain Crunchberry was filling up the calendar before he passed the torch off to Honey Do for new Site Q duties. Glad he reached out to remind me that I had it because I would have floundered around and not realized it otherwise. So, come onContinue reading “Pre-Blast – Jolly Rancher Q – Moonshiner @ Boondocks – 05/13/2021”

Back Blast – The Nest – 04/10/2021

Delayed back blast. I picked this Q up a little late and needless to say I’m even later on my back blast. Apologies, PAX! PAX: Hushpuppy Asian Zing (R) Yankovic (R) Tidwell Short Circuit GQ Brown Tail (R) Captain Crunchberry Jolly Rancher (Q) Disclaimers given and time was called. Mosey over to the new TownContinue reading “Back Blast – The Nest – 04/10/2021”

F3LOUISVILLE 2021 SPRING CONVERGENCE – 04/24/2021 at The Garden!

Tomorrow is shaping up to be a gorgeous day for F3 Louisville’s 2021 Spring Convergence. As Kilo noted in his message yesterday, this is also a Convergence where we’re celebrating the 4th anniversary of the first shovel flag being planted in Louisville. Slack now has over 803 PAX – and of that 610 distinct PAXContinue reading “F3LOUISVILLE 2021 SPRING CONVERGENCE – 04/24/2021 at The Garden!”
