BB – 3/11/22 – Wisteria at Pleasantville – Meter Maid Q

YHC continued his tour of the AOs with this mornings visit to Pleasantville. If you haven’t been out recently, I would encourage you to come out. There were no potted plants today but 5 PAX came out.

Pre Blast 24-Sep-2021 Friday Wisteria at Pleasantville 05:30 Crock Pot Q

What meal is in the Crock Pot? “Run, Mary, Run! “I saw that on a Bayside blast in the recent past (Hat tip to Slide Rule), so that’s exactly what we’ll do tomorrow at Pleasantville.

Preblast: 2/5/21- Wisteria @ Pleasantville

Clearly I’m no plantsman because I had to Google the definition of Wisteria. My search returned the following results… Wisteria is a vining plant with cascades of blue to purple flowers that look spectacular hanging from a pergola or archway in spring and early summer. Historically, Wisteria symbolizes long-life and immortality. Wisteria can live upContinue reading “Preblast: 2/5/21- Wisteria @ Pleasantville”

BB- Pleasantville 9/11/20- Meter Maid Q

I had reached out a few weeks ago to Holy Roller to Q. I wanted to do a themed 9/11 Q to pay tribute to all the many victims, first responders and families that were impacted by the tragedy 19 years ago. I am sure those who were alive know exactly what they were doingContinue reading “BB- Pleasantville 9/11/20- Meter Maid Q”

PB- Pleasantville 9/11 – Meter Q

I think we all remember where we were when 9/11 happened. I remember watching in shock as the events unfolded. Tomorrow, I will be leading a themed workout to remember the 9/11 victims and heroes. A patriotic playlist that will be playing as we work. It will be a run heavy. No coupons but glovesContinue reading “PB- Pleasantville 9/11 – Meter Q”

BB- Wisteria @ Pleasantville – Meter Q 8/14/20

I was looking forward to my second Q of the week after the Foundry on Wednesday. As the PAX started to arrive, a pickup truck going the wrong way went over a nearby curb. It brought back recent memories of Nutty Professor (one of Dauber’s 50 brother in laws) recent driving performances at the County.Continue reading “BB- Wisteria @ Pleasantville – Meter Q 8/14/20”

PB – Pleasantville 8/14/20 – Meter Q

Come join Holy Roller, Cowboy and YHC in the gloom tomorrow. It will be more fun than seeing Tony Malito on a hot craps table. (If Gilligan reads this, get your head out the the gutter.) We will use the steps of the amphitheater, mosey around PV and do some PT. We won’t use anyContinue reading “PB – Pleasantville 8/14/20 – Meter Q”

Wisteria @ Pleasantville BB 01/31/2020

My first trip back to the house that Grinder built in a while was an exciting prospect.  A busy week at work and three hour beer tasting had me less prepared than usual Thursday night.  Hey no problem!  The possibilities are endless in Pleasantville.  Fast forward six hours and I’m driving that way, listening toContinue reading “Wisteria @ Pleasantville BB 01/31/2020”

BackBlast 5/30 @ Bayside w/ Uncle Rico

Special shout out to Sadie for inviting me to come up and see what Bayside has to offer.  Was going in a little blind as it was my first visit but will definitely be back.

BackBlast 5/22 @ The Bridge w/ Uncle Rico

With Memorial Day just around the corner the PAX decided it was time to work on our dadbods with a little curls for the girls and tris for the guys.  Don’t worry though it was a full body beatdown by the end and of course finished off with Pickle Pounders. 8 Pax – Uncle RicoContinue reading “BackBlast 5/22 @ The Bridge w/ Uncle Rico”

BackBlast 5/16 Black Ops w/ Uncle Rico @ St Pats

Was a perfect morning for 8 PAX to get better @ St. Pats.  Started off scaring everyone about “The Mountain” but then told them joking we were only going to run up it once.  Even Catfish was glad to hear that.  I challenge all PAX to come check out what St. Pats terrain has toContinue reading “BackBlast 5/16 Black Ops w/ Uncle Rico @ St Pats”

BB Wisteria at Pleasantville 4/19/19

My return to the Q at Pleasantville was a tough one to plan.  I don’t mind the rain, but I don’t necessarily like standing in it and one of the best features of this site, the amphitheater steps,  was sure to be sloppy. Conditions weren’t so bad when I woke up, but that quickly changedContinue reading “BB Wisteria at Pleasantville 4/19/19”

Backblast 3.22.19 @ Pleasantville
