In true F3Louisville fashion this event followed the ready shoot aim approached. When YHC threw this out there it seemed like the right thing to do to prepare us for the upcoming GoRuck events. However, when I beep boop'd it onto the calendar I had the realization that this was going to take some planning … Continue reading 2.10.18 Night Ruck Training BB:
No fancy message here. Just some facts. Weather looks to be in the mid 30s with 50% chance of rain on Saturday night. Ask and you shall receive. With temps that low I have removed the aquatic portion from our evening as the SkyQ will be providing us with plenty of practice working under wet … Continue reading 2.10.18 9pm Ruck update
YHC was pumped up about Q'n at the O today. It's called the Original for a reason because that's where most of our journeys began. Added bonus is Wham!'s killer Bag of Wrenches flag. I am a sucker for Flags #.. Punk music comprised my playlist and I only needed to know one thing from … Continue reading 2.6.18 Bag of Wrenches BB: Punkiversary. Do you feel lucky?
You are cordially invited to attend the 10th Anniversary BeatDown Celebration of Zartan and Heartwrencher. And to celebrate 10 years we are going to throw down at The O for Bag of Wrenches.

It's becoming cliche but this group of HIMs continue to impress. Not a week, or day, goes by without someone doing something extraordinary.

This is … Continue reading 2.4.18 BlackOp BackBlast: This is us, deal with it. Or don’t.

Like most stupid things YHC says it happened while sipping a fine single barrel bourbon and texting with some PAX members.

This story begins not unlike many others you have heard before. HIM EH's his buddy. His buddy says blah blah blah (excuses). HIM goes on getting better and reminding said buddy that the gloom will always be there for him. Fast forward 5 months and this is where things get interesting. YHC has been grinding … Continue reading 1.29.18 1930 BlackOp: Wait, we have night beatdowns too?

Sometimes life gets in the way of F3. The flu, injuries, booze, being a sissy are all real issues some of us face. But when a doctor tells you to refrain from doing something we should listen right?

It’s going to suck but it will suck less if … Continue reading PreBlast at the Mutt #Extender: Frosty has the Q and you have Zero excuses
