Preblast 11-16 The Hurt at The Mutt

Next man up!  That’s what we say when the starter is injured.  That’s sorta the way it’s been for my beloved Boilermakers since we’re currently on our walk-on 4th string QB, but I digress.  When Sump Pump messaged a few of us saying that he was on the DL and he needed a back upContinue reading “Preblast 11-16 The Hurt at The Mutt”

9-10-19 Backblast The Rooster at the Mut

A year ago I was an out of shape 40 year old.  With work, school, dance, gymnastics, soccer, and baseball the last thing I had time to do was to take care of my health, both physically and spiritually.  I had recently participated in the Rugged Maniac at Paoli Peaks.  I finished but my upperContinue reading “9-10-19 Backblast The Rooster at the Mut”

Star Ruck Back Blast (We Be Shufflin’)

50 miles on foot is a loooong way.  Carrying over 30 pounds on your back is no picnic either.  However, when you’re teamed up with some real HIMs that motivate you and pull you along with them, it makes the journey a lot easier to conquer.  And CONQUER we did!  Not just our team, butContinue reading “Star Ruck Back Blast (We Be Shufflin’)”

2/8/19 Pleasantville Back Blast

There’s an old saying, “If you don’t like the weather, wait a minute and it will change.”  The past few days have been down right weird weather-wise.  From seasonably warm weather to the Polar Vortex, followed by great golfing weather, back to cold, back to warm with storms and now back to below freezing withContinue reading “2/8/19 Pleasantville Back Blast”

1/22 Blender @ The Mutt Pre-Blast

Originally Blueprint was going to Q both Monday BO at The O and Wednesday Blender at The Mutt.  I thought I’d make it easier on him and take his Wednesday.  As we all know Monday was bitter cold but dry.  “The Experts” are predicting 75% chance of rain but 47 degrees for Wednesday morning.  I’mContinue reading “1/22 Blender @ The Mutt Pre-Blast”
