Back-Blast Tuesday 04-13-2021 – The Loco @ The County

Definitely an upgrade. 19 fellow PAX checked the pre-blast, noticed a switch of Qs at the Loco, and showed up in force to The County this morning.  I picked out a playlist specifically with no Taylor, no Katy, no Miley, and no Brittney.  Still no Pelican at the Loco tho (no worries however, he wasContinue reading “Back-Blast Tuesday 04-13-2021 – The Loco @ The County”

Back-Blast Monday 03-15-2021 – The Silo @ North Posh

This morning was all about Celebration Day and Super Samuel, so I’ll keep this back blast brief. Spend your time reading Jolly Rancher’s South Posh back blast. We had 7 strong at North Posh: Minnow, Bob Ross,Sweettart,Viking, Backflop, Wide Right, Dauber (Q)Right after the disclaimer we dropped for 10 BOYOs and then a mosey down pathContinue reading “Back-Blast Monday 03-15-2021 – The Silo @ North Posh”

Back-Blast Friday 02-19-2021 – Wisteria @ Pleasantville

The plan for this morning was run quite a bit around Pleasantville so I arrived a little earlier than usual to drive around and check the roads. Conditions were not too bad so I decided to stick with the plan. We had 9 PAX at 0530 so disclaimer was given and confirmed.  Extra call outContinue reading “Back-Blast Friday 02-19-2021 – Wisteria @ Pleasantville”

Back-Blast Wednesday 02-03-2021 – The Foundry @ The County

The playlist was awesome this morning…let me just start with that.  An 80s version of Dauber’s Guilty Pleasures was perfect for a heavy workout and truly made the hundred yards of suck feel like a teenage dream (that is kinda yucky, but I typed it so I am standing by it).  Here is a rundownContinue reading “Back-Blast Wednesday 02-03-2021 – The Foundry @ The County”

Back-Blast Tuesday 02-02-2021 – The Planetarium @ The Boondocks

If you already knew the significance of this week in Boondocks history, you knew it was gonna get weird this morning.  One year ago this week was the first workout at The Boondocks as an official AO.  I wanted to pay homage to this special anniversary, particularly for those PAX who were there a year ago for thatContinue reading “Back-Blast Tuesday 02-02-2021 – The Planetarium @ The Boondocks”

Pre-Blast Wednesday 02-03-2021 – The Foundry @ The County

Looking forward to traveling away from my home AO to Q at The County tomorrow morning. I hear The County has a good thing going and The Foundry is bada$$. Whether you are a County regular, part of the GCA or just County curious…all are invited. Bring a coupon and be ready for a hundredContinue reading “Pre-Blast Wednesday 02-03-2021 – The Foundry @ The County”

Back-Blast Wednesday 01-27-2021 – The Escalator @ The Abyss

We ran a lot this morning.  I was clear on that plan in the pre-blast so was pretty pumped to see the regular Abyss crew was pretty much all there (no surprise really…the Abyss boys are always putting in work).  There were two surprises though as Plumb Bob made his first post at the Abyss (andContinue reading “Back-Blast Wednesday 01-27-2021 – The Escalator @ The Abyss”

Back-Blast Friday 01-22-2021 – The Chopper @ Vets

Every time I visit Vets it gets better and better. It really is awesome to workout around the monuments with your F3 brothers. When I have posted or Q’ed at Vets in the past it has usually been a core group of Vets regulars and a handful of GCA boys making the trip in. ThisContinue reading “Back-Blast Friday 01-22-2021 – The Chopper @ Vets”

Back-Blast Monday 01-18-2021 – The Motivator @ The Abyss

It was another record breaking morning at the Abyss. We didn’t eclipse the 33 PAX record set last Friday at Backflop’s Q, but we did shatter two other records. More on that later.  It was a bit dicey (i.e. icy) this morning and when I arrived Mr Hat, Uncle Sam and Jolly Rancher were alreadyContinue reading “Back-Blast Monday 01-18-2021 – The Motivator @ The Abyss”

Back-Blast Wednesday 01-13-2021 – The Blender @ The Mutt

I had a blast this morning at the Mutt. This was my first Mutt Q and I gotta be honest I was a little nervous based on the conflicting information I was provided in advance by some Mutt regulars. However, I think all will agree it was a perfectly executed Q with perhaps a fewContinue reading “Back-Blast Wednesday 01-13-2021 – The Blender @ The Mutt”

Pre-Blast Wednesday 01-13-2021 – The Blender @ The Mutt

I am not certain if I was actually invited (pretty sure I wasn’t), but somehow I am on the calendar and I am jacked up for my first Q at The Mutt tomorrow. We are gonna cover some ground and it will be a high tempo workout…likely will mix in a few burpees and alsoContinue reading “Pre-Blast Wednesday 01-13-2021 – The Blender @ The Mutt”

Back-Blast Saturday 01-02-2021 – The Fog @ Poshland

Slack was extraordinarily active last night as PAX from all over F3 Louisville threw out options for pre-Fog workouts…Rucks, Murphs, Ruck PTs, leisurely walks, etc.  It seemed everyone wanted to be a Posh on Saturday morning, but I wasn’t sure if anyone actually wanted to be at the Fog workout.  I arrived a little early and saw aContinue reading “Back-Blast Saturday 01-02-2021 – The Fog @ Poshland”

Back-Blast Friday 12/18/2020 – Wisteria didn’t suck all that much @ Pleasantville

So I made this stupid bet with Tidwell last week on the St X – Trinity game…If Trinity wins, I wear a Trinity shirt for a workout and if X wins Tidwell wears a St X shirt. Of course I knew it was a stupid bet, but Tidwell is the man and I was notContinue reading “Back-Blast Friday 12/18/2020 – Wisteria didn’t suck all that much @ Pleasantville”

Pre-Blast Friday 12/18/2020 – Wisteria is gonna suck @ Pleasantville

I love Qing Pleasantville. It’s one of my favorite AOs. Weather is going to be perfect there like it always is. Friday’s are the best workouts. I love seeing my boys ITG. Well…with all of that said…I am NOT looking forward to tomorrow. It is gonna suck. Come out to Pleasantville and find out why.Continue reading “Pre-Blast Friday 12/18/2020 – Wisteria is gonna suck @ Pleasantville”

Back Blast – “County Fair” Blessings in a Backpack for Engelhard Elementary

Over 50 HIMs donated $3,770…providing Blessings in a Backpack to 29 kids for a full school year!Pelican told me I could write as much as I want in this back blast and since he is the assistant to the regional ComzQ, I believe he has that authority.  I am going to try to be concise, butContinue reading “Back Blast – “County Fair” Blessings in a Backpack for Engelhard Elementary”

Back-Blast Thursday 12/03/2020 – Temple of Gloom @ The O

Ok…So Violet asked me to Ghost Q the ToG back in October and I put together a candy-themed Halloween workout that I was pretty proud of. 2020 sucks so of course I had to back out on the Ghost Q, but Violet forgave me and got me back on the calendar for today. Like IContinue reading “Back-Blast Thursday 12/03/2020 – Temple of Gloom @ The O”

Pre-Blast Thursday 12/03/2020 – Temple of Gloom @ The O

I originally had the Ghost Q for ToG but ended up having to miss it. So I got back on the schedule for tomorrow and we are gonna re-live Halloween week with the exact workout I had planned (except you already know I am Qing I guess). We will definitely be running around the OContinue reading “Pre-Blast Thursday 12/03/2020 – Temple of Gloom @ The O”

Back-Blast Tuesday 11/24/2020 – Loco @ Pleasantville (NOT The County or The Station)

Everything is fine here. Pay no attention to the fire over there in the dumpster.  I’ll start by saying the workout itself actually went pretty smooth this morning. However, the prep and post workout was not my best work. I had a workout somewhat in mind for the Loco @ The County when Crockpot originallyContinue reading “Back-Blast Tuesday 11/24/2020 – Loco @ Pleasantville (NOT The County or The Station)”

Back-Blast Monday 11/09/2020 – The Motivator @ The Abyss

The Abyss was dark as usual, but the sky was clear, stars were bright, temperature was unseasonably warm, and PAX were ready to get after it this morning.  The Abyss regulars even commented on Flip Flop’s uncharacteristic early arrival (~30 seconds before 0530).  PAX:  Holy Roller (R), F Stop, Uncle Sam (R), Colonel Klink, Focker, Mr.Continue reading “Back-Blast Monday 11/09/2020 – The Motivator @ The Abyss”

Back-Blast Tuesday 11/03/2020 – The Planetarium @ The Boondock

I love Qing the Boondocks…it is simply the best.  There is literally always something weird or random on a Tuesday in the gloom at the Boondocks.  This morning I had a relatively straightforward workout planned with an accompanying playlist of some up-tempo 80’s rock.  Well…then COP happened.PAX:  Holy Roller (R), Launchpad (R), Brown Tail (R), WILDflower,Continue reading “Back-Blast Tuesday 11/03/2020 – The Planetarium @ The Boondock”
