Pre-Blast – Jolly Rancher Q – The Defender at The Patriot – 09/02/2022

Not really sure what is on the menu for tomorrow morning’s weinke. So, that could mean it’s going to be really good or really bad – come find out which one. Whatever I decide, it’ll start with side-straddle hops…that’s like the sixth core principle of F3, right? Coupons will be needed and we’ll move aroundContinue reading “Pre-Blast – Jolly Rancher Q – The Defender at The Patriot – 09/02/2022”

Back Blast – Jolly Rancher’s 4-Year Postiversary and 750th Post – Loco at The County – 08/02/2022

Four years ago. Man, that’s hard to believe. I remember it like it was [almost] yesterday. And somehow within those 4-years I’ve posted 750x. I’m still no specimen of good health, but I’m certainly better off than where I started before I found F3. And, as a result I’ll chalk that up as one forContinue reading “Back Blast – Jolly Rancher’s 4-Year Postiversary and 750th Post – Loco at The County – 08/02/2022”

Pre-blast – Jolly Rancher 4-Year Postiversary – Loco at The County – 08/02/2022

Four years ago…hard to believe. I’ve learned a lot about myself since then, I’ve enjoyed the new friendships, and I’ve done things that I never dreamed I would ever think of. Oh, and this actually is in celebration of my 750th post, too. Bring a coupon. And bring a sad clown that needs this inContinue reading “Pre-blast – Jolly Rancher 4-Year Postiversary – Loco at The County – 08/02/2022”

Backblast – The Planetarium at The Boondocks – 07/26/2022

Going to keep this one brief… Time was called at 0530am and disclaimers provided [or at least I think I did them]. We moved straight into the normal Jolly Rancher COP – read prior blasts for what that entailed. PAX: Furdays Virginia Slims Brown Water Honey Do Bulletin (R) Holy Roller (R) Layover Jolly RancherContinue reading “Backblast – The Planetarium at The Boondocks – 07/26/2022”

Pre-Blast – Jolly Rancher Birthday Q Part Deux at The Boondocks – 07/26/2022

Weather tomorrow looks perfect. Come join me for some celebrations. No coupons required. Running shoes will be needed as we will be making our way off of campus a bit. Call a HIM you haven’t seen in a while and let’s go! Hope to see you there! Jolly Rancher out!

Back Blast – The Minuteman at The Patriot – 07/25/2022

A while back I reached out to Virginia Slims to see if the Q on 07/26/2022 was open because I didn’t see it on the calendar [my actual birthday]. But, unfortunately it wasn’t and I just can’t read…so, when Rip Van Winkle needed some help on 07/25/2022 I jumped at the opportunity and said it’sContinue reading “Back Blast – The Minuteman at The Patriot – 07/25/2022”

Pre-blast – Jolly Rancher Q – The Ruiner at The O – 07/09/2022

Dot reached out a few weeks ago asking if I could Q the Ruiner – as always, I said yes because I can’t say no. Meanwhile, I always love it when Site Qs ask people to Q versus throw out an empty calendar asking people to sign up. This just means he must want aContinue reading “Pre-blast – Jolly Rancher Q – The Ruiner at The O – 07/09/2022”

Back Blast – Moonshiner – 06/30/2022

Last minute audible to pick up this Q from an ailing Captain Crunchberry. Never fear – went to my stash of pre-planned weinke and grabbed the one that was speaking to me when I made my way towards the car. PAX – 3G, Virginia Slims, Backflop and Jolly Rancher (Q) COP – normal stuff, nothingContinue reading “Back Blast – Moonshiner – 06/30/2022”

Back Blast – The Range at The Patriot – 06/15/2022

Glorious morning today spent with the PAX that call The Patriot their home. A bit cooler than yesterday, too, which I call a win. PAX: Layover Mannequin Ferb Rip Van Winkle Snaggletooth Saul Goodman Patty Furdays Holy Roller (R) Jolly Rancher (Q) COP: Standard business from me here: SSH Downward Dog and Runners Stretches GrassContinue reading “Back Blast – The Range at The Patriot – 06/15/2022”

Jolly Rancher Q – The Range at The Patriot – 06/15/2022

I know, I know…I thought Captain Crunchberry had this Q….? Seems he’s got more important business to attend to in working on the running BlackOps at EP Tom Sawyer (shameless plug for that for those interested). That said, you’re stuck with the more handsome brother, which for those debating it…that’s me. No coupons for thisContinue reading “Jolly Rancher Q – The Range at The Patriot – 06/15/2022”

Back Blast – Loco at the County – 06/14/2022 – FLAG DAY!

Rolled into the parking lot around 5:15am and it was empty. Took a nice gulp of refreshing water to get me one step closer to surviving the 80 degree morning workout. PAX: Cratchit Timeshare Cochran Big Bird Dot (R) Meter Maid DeVitto Brown Water Pelican Dauber Wildflower Alexa Nat Geo (R) Honey DO Abacus GiseleContinue reading “Back Blast – Loco at the County – 06/14/2022 – FLAG DAY!”

Pre-blast – Jolly Rancher Q – Loco at The County – 06/14/2022 – FLAG DAY!

Yes, you read that right – tomorrow, June 14, is Flag Day. What does that have to do with my Q? Well, you’ll have to come on out to The County and find out. If you have an extra shovel flag for some reason laying around – you know, if you’re a washed up Nantan,Continue reading “Pre-blast – Jolly Rancher Q – Loco at The County – 06/14/2022 – FLAG DAY!”

F3 Louisville – 5-years and New Leadership Announcements – 04/22/2022!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY F3 LOUISVILLE! If you’d like to take a trip down memory lane [for those OGs out there] or for those relative “new guys” that may not know the history of F3 Louisville, here’s the very first backblast posted when the shovel flag was planted at Seneca Park [now known as The O] backContinue reading “F3 Louisville – 5-years and New Leadership Announcements – 04/22/2022!”

Backblast – BlackOps at The Patriot – 04/16/2022

Will keep this short as I’m already a few days late. Threw out a pre-ruck option and had four other HIMs [Chili Pepper, Holy Roller (R), Rip Van Winkle and Fitbit] decide to take me up on it – it was great mumblechatter with some PAX I don’t frequently get to see in the gloom.Continue reading “Backblast – BlackOps at The Patriot – 04/16/2022”

Jolly Rancher Q – BlackOps at The Patriot – 04/16/2022

Can’t wait for tomorrow. LaGrange is a happening place every day – but normally at 0530 during the week, that’s not the case. But, tomorrow for the BlackOps we’ll get started at 0700 and I suspect Main Street will be buzzing with excitement. And that has nothing to do with the HIM that will joinContinue reading “Jolly Rancher Q – BlackOps at The Patriot – 04/16/2022”

Back Blast – Minuteman at The Patriot – 04/11/2022

I always enjoy starting the week off with a workout. So, when Rip Van Winkle needed a Q for The Minuteman I was pleased to oblige to force myself to get up and post. PAX: Layover Ruby (R) Banjo Mannequin Rip Van Winkle Focker Single Source Holy Roller (R) Chili Pepper Malpractice GMO Colonel KlinkContinue reading “Back Blast – Minuteman at The Patriot – 04/11/2022”

Back Blast – Foundry “Heavy” – 04/06/2022

Preblast was important for this “heavy” workout at the Foundry, which turned out to really not be a heavy at all. In all fairness, this was no secret. PAX Focker Dot (R) (see more on this below) Cochran Brown Water Timeshare Jolly Rancher (Q) Time was called and disclaimers provided. We said goodbye to theContinue reading “Back Blast – Foundry “Heavy” – 04/06/2022”

Preblast – Jolly Rancher Q – The Foundry at The Nest – 04/06/2022

Omaha! Stick Up’s shirking his responsibilities again so we are calling an audible as I volunteered to help him out with the Q. I haven’t Q’d the Foundry since March 18, 2020 – which may have been the last “regular” workout before COVID shut us down temporarily and we went to some virtual workouts andContinue reading “Preblast – Jolly Rancher Q – The Foundry at The Nest – 04/06/2022”

Preblast – Jolly Rancher Q – The Nest @ The County – 03/19/2022

I’m pretty vocal about the fact that The Nest has been and is still my favorite workout of the week. Looking forward to another good one tomorrow. Weather looks a bit iffy on the rain chances, but you only get wet once. No coupons required, but you’ll need running shoes. Let’s get busy. Jolly RancherContinue reading “Preblast – Jolly Rancher Q – The Nest @ The County – 03/19/2022”

Back Blast – The Defender at The Patriot – 03/18/2022

I sent a note to the Site Qs at The Patriot yesterday because I realized my Q that I had scheduled there at some point during Iron Horse Challenge must have gotten mixed up in the calendar debacle. So, I was without a Q. Which would have been the only AO that I haven’t Q’dContinue reading “Back Blast – The Defender at The Patriot – 03/18/2022”

Back Blast – 4th Annual Celebration Day – The Loco at The County – 03/15/2022

Over the past four years, the days leading up to March 15 is always tough. But, I’m thankful that I’ve never had to start this day alone over those four years. Why, you ask? Well, keep reading. Instead of starting it alone, I am a recipient to the encouragement, support and love of the PAXContinue reading “Back Blast – 4th Annual Celebration Day – The Loco at The County – 03/15/2022”

Preblast – Celebration Day – Jolly Rancher Q at The Loco : The County – 03/15/2022

Tomorrow, we will celebrate all of what life provides. Each and every single one of you has something to celebrate. Though, more often than not as men we never really take the time to pause, reflect and share with each other those accomplishments. And, life is hard. In fact, your celebration may help someone elseContinue reading “Preblast – Celebration Day – Jolly Rancher Q at The Loco : The County – 03/15/2022”

Backblast – The Incubator at Posh – 03/07/2022

Nothing beats a workout in the pouring down rain – especially when it’s mid-60s outside. And yes, for those eagle eyes my pre-blast from yesterday that had the weather forecast was from Miami – not Louisville. Not sure it fooled anyone though. Gear included a single layer for the first time in 2022 – itContinue reading “Backblast – The Incubator at Posh – 03/07/2022”

Preblast – Jolly Rancher Q – The Rooster at The Mutt – 03/08/2022

Yep, you read that right – corporate is coming inside the Watterson to join the PAX at The Mutt. I’m not sure the reports Old Bay has been giving me are factual, so I decided to witness them for myself firsthand. No coupons needed. Just come ready to move. SYITG – Jolly Rancher out!

Back Blast – Silo at North Posh – 02/28/2022

It was a great morning with a few of the PAX that decided to join me. Those included Viking, Timeshare and Nice and Slow. Monday is always a tough day to try and post because 0530am shows up really quick. Nevertheless, we conquered the fart sack together and got better. Time was called and theContinue reading “Back Blast – Silo at North Posh – 02/28/2022”
