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”

Pre-blast – 2021 F3 Louisville Awards Banquet – 01/28/2022 – VENUE CHANGE!

The time has come to celebrate all of the gains from 2021 – and I’m not talking about the extra pounds each of us are carrying around during the second year of COVID.

Backblast – The Max at Bayside – 01/18/2022

Always a great day when I get to hang out with the PAX of Bayside. If you’ve never made it out there, you really should – while it may seem like a far way away, it’s really not as fart as you think. Take advantage of the kids on NTI this week and just doContinue reading “Backblast – The Max at Bayside – 01/18/2022”

Pre-Blast – Jolly Rancher Q – The Max at Bayside – 01/18/2022

Looking forward to my quarterly visit to Bayside tomorrow. Still not sure exactly what the weinke will be, but, bring coupons just in case. We may just end up plowing the parking lot for the great folks at Martha Layne Collins High School. So, be prepared for anything. Jolly Rancher out!

Back Blast – The Ruiner at The O – 01/15/2022

Before the workout, I had to go get my passport renewed to make sure I’d be able to clear customs to get inside of the Watterson Expressway. It was great getting out to where this thing all started – and it always is a good time. And, January 15, 2022 was no different. It allContinue reading “Back Blast – The Ruiner at The O – 01/15/2022”

Pre-Blast – Jolly Rancher Q – The Ruiner at The O – 01/15/2022

Had to go find my passport so that I can make it inside of the Watterson Expressway for my visit to The O tomorrow. Looks like we’re in for great January weather and I know there’s a pre-ruck going on at 5:45am, too. YOU WILL NEED A COUPON, RUCK, OR SANDBAG. Otherwise, be prepared forContinue reading “Pre-Blast – Jolly Rancher Q – The Ruiner at The O – 01/15/2022”

Backblast – The Moonshiner at The Boondocks – 01/13/2022

Will keep this one short and sweet. Decided today that it would be leg day – why? I don’t really know. But, it felt good and I think the PAX also enjoyed it. So, I call that a win. PAX: Backflop Cochran Bulletin (R) Patty Honey Do Sputnik Single Source Flip Flop Jolly Rancher (Q)Continue reading “Backblast – The Moonshiner at The Boondocks – 01/13/2022”

Pre-blast – Jolly Rancher Q – Moonshiner at Boondocks – 01/13/2022

Captain’s Log, day 3. Setting out for my third Q in consecutive days. Looking forward to hitting up the Moonshiner which is under new leadership with Backflop taking over from Honey Do. Because I know Backflop loves to run, I’m going to honor the transition and make sure tomorrow we don’t skip leg day. NoContinue reading “Pre-blast – Jolly Rancher Q – Moonshiner at Boondocks – 01/13/2022”

Backblast – The Tank at Vets – 01/12/2022

Nothing beats a trip to Vets. Hands down you’re always guaranteed a good time and a laugh…or two. This trip was no different. Earlier in the week, I received word that a downrange PAX was going to be in town. Naturally, I encouraged him to join me at The Tank for my Q and alsoContinue reading “Backblast – The Tank at Vets – 01/12/2022”

Pre-blast – Jolly Rancher Q – The Tank at Vets – 01/12/2022

That’s right. Jolly’s packing his bags and headed south to lead the men at Vets. Always a great time out there – so looking forward to some awkward mumblechatter of great stories shared by some of the greatest story tellers in F3 Louisville and also some recommendations on random things that I’ll never try orContinue reading “Pre-blast – Jolly Rancher Q – The Tank at Vets – 01/12/2022”

Backblast – The Loco at The County – 01/11/2022

Had a weinke planned that could either be modified for partner workouts or groups of 3. Sure enough – we had 5 PAX show up. Time to file that weinke away for next time.

COP: Modified slightly from my normalContinue reading “Backblast – The Loco at The County – 01/11/2022”

Pre-Blast – Jolly Rancher Q – The Loco at The County – 01/11/2022

Weather looks great tomorrow in comparison to my last Q last week the day after the snow storm. Looking forward to having a clean parking lot and lots of room to move around.
