9.9.22 Way Back Blast: The Chopper @ Vets

A little behind on this one but I promised Lockbox I would get it out. The days are long, the years are short and in the F3 world two weeks is an eternity. That said, it’s strange how I struggle to remember what I had for lunch yesterday but I have no trouble remembering theContinue reading “9.9.22 Way Back Blast: The Chopper @ Vets”

9.22.22 Pre Blast – The Temple of Gloom at the O: BigBird Q

Its funny how our F3 names are a piece of who we are. And sometimes, the more that time goes on the more you somehow relate and take ownership over your name. Viking knows what I’m talking about. Bunghole, Eye Booger, Mom Suit and Tramp Stamp…I can’t speak for you. And Toots…well, he still doesn’tContinue reading “9.22.22 Pre Blast – The Temple of Gloom at the O: BigBird Q”

BB- 9/19/22 – The Minutemen at the Patriot – Meter Maid Q

Never miss a Monday is a GoRuck slogan but checking out their numbers goes well beyond Mondays. YHC arrived a few minutes early to greet to early arrivers to the workout. Right at 5:30am, we had 19 Pax until a later arriver joined us to give us 20. Glad to see Lucky Charms back out.Continue reading “BB- 9/19/22 – The Minutemen at the Patriot – Meter Maid Q”

9.17.22 Pre Blast: The Nest @ The County – Cochran & BigBird Co-Q postiversary

Remember how when you were a single guy all that you had to worry about was yourself? It’s good for a while but then you end up searching for deeper meaning in your life. You then find the one that puts up with your shenanigans and marry up before she gets away. And then afterContinue reading “9.17.22 Pre Blast: The Nest @ The County – Cochran & BigBird Co-Q postiversary”

BB – 9/7/22 – The Foundry at the County – Meter Maid Q

It was a great morning to get out and move some weight. I arrived in just enough time to get everything setup. I had strategic placed it under a light. The quote of the day was Double Pump asking me if I owned a gym. There were 5 (Double Pump, Brown Water, Pelican, Jerry MaguireContinue reading “BB – 9/7/22 – The Foundry at the County – Meter Maid Q”

8/24/22 – Meter Maid Q School – The Foundry at the County

It is Q school week and it was an opportunity to share our insights with pax. Checking out the weasel shaker, this was my 87th lifetime Q. It does get easier as you Q more. After 6 weeks I leapt into my VQ. It was fitting one as the first official County Q. To thoseContinue reading “8/24/22 – Meter Maid Q School – The Foundry at the County”

BB – 8/17/22 – The Foundry at the County – Meter Maid Q

YHC led an old school heavy where we met at the playground. I came in a few minutes early to unload the back of my Explorer. I had plenty of toys including the potted plants (Sorinex Center Mass Bells) and GoRuck sandbags. Brown Water was the first to show up. Others arrived (Honeycomb, Huey andContinue reading “BB – 8/17/22 – The Foundry at the County – Meter Maid Q”

8.17.22 Pre Blast: The Range @ The Patriot – BigBird Q

No creative theme. No pic to entice you make it out (mostly because WordPress sux for me lately). No semi witty segue creating mystery and clues as of what to expect. Just know that YHC promises two things to you ITG. 1) We will work hard. And 2) you will leave feeling better than whenContinue reading “8.17.22 Pre Blast: The Range @ The Patriot – BigBird Q”

BB- The Agony at the County -8/11/22 – Meter Maid Q

DeVitto needed a Q last night so I jumped at the opportunity to lead. I knew I wanted to get some miles and it would be simple. Go around the Pewee Valley loop and stop along the way and do various exercises. Provided the disclaimer and we were on our way. It was simple itContinue reading “BB- The Agony at the County -8/11/22 – Meter Maid Q”

8.5.22 Back Blast: Wisteria @ Pleasantville

Insta Doodle and I have gotten pretty close over the last couple of months. The first time I met him was at a P’Ville beatdown. Immediately after the workout I go into my gym at work for some EC weightlifting before the workday and this dude comes up to me and says, “weren’t you justContinue reading “8.5.22 Back Blast: Wisteria @ Pleasantville”

8.5.22 Pre Blast: Wisteria @ Pleasantville – Instadoodle /BigBird Co-Q

Holy hell!! What’s that flying in at 0530 in the morning? Is that a DoodleBird?! Not sure what that is? We’ll…come to the place where false advertisement will be at an all time high. Where the most pleasant of all AO’s will not be pleasant at all. Where you will find that hybridization couldn’t haveContinue reading “8.5.22 Pre Blast: Wisteria @ Pleasantville – Instadoodle /BigBird Co-Q”

8.1.22 Back Blast: The Incubator @ Posh

It was an Abacus Q on 7.18.22. When PAX gathered together, a touch before 0530, it didn’t take PK long to realize that everyone in attendance began their F3 journeys in 2017. To describe these PAX some might even throw out the acronym “OGs.” PK certainly did and felt moved to, at that moment, announceContinue reading “8.1.22 Back Blast: The Incubator @ Posh”

7/29/22 – The Defender at the Patriot – Meter Maid Q

Looking at the weather the night before, I was worried it might rain but it held off. I had a rough idea of what I wanted to do at the Patriot to mix it up. Right at 5:30AM, a plethora of flags came in and were placed by the Colonel Oldham statute. (When you haveContinue reading “7/29/22 – The Defender at the Patriot – Meter Maid Q”

BB- The Loco – 7/19/22 – Meter Maid Q

A few weeks ago Pelican took my Q and site Q duties while on vacation. This was my week to repay him. It was hot and muddy 75 degrees to start the workout. The picnic remnants had been cleaned up from the last weekend. There were 14 pax ready to tackle the day: Double Pump,Continue reading “BB- The Loco – 7/19/22 – Meter Maid Q”

BB – The Ruiner at the O – Meter Maid Q – 7/16/22

Dot had reached out earlier this month to Q where it all began for Louisville. Dot and YHC did a preruck and in 3.5 miles which still allowed me 15 for Dot, Patches and me to setup for the O’s first potted plant tour. We had 7 pax who made it out (Dot [R], MarvinContinue reading “BB – The Ruiner at the O – Meter Maid Q – 7/16/22”

7.5.22 Back Blast: The Planetarium @ The Boondocks

Virginia Slims…or “Slims” as I’ve come to affectionally know him, reached out about 4 weeks ago to see if I would grab up the day after Independence Day workout at The Boondocks. Ultimately the answer would be yes but I am one who likes to indulge in the good time festivities that the 4th bringsContinue reading “7.5.22 Back Blast: The Planetarium @ The Boondocks”

7.5.22 Pre Blast: The Planetarium @ The Boondocks – BigBird Q

There is only one thing better to do. Start your short week off on the right two feet forContinue reading “7.5.22 Pre Blast: The Planetarium @ The Boondocks – BigBird Q”

BB- North Posh – 7/4/22

After coming back from Scout Camp in Canton, NC, YHC picked up the Q for North Posh. It is a great spot for running. If you haven’t been there, check it out sometime soon. With it being a holiday, the 7AM start time didn’t make it seem so much like the usual gloom. I wasn’tContinue reading “BB- North Posh – 7/4/22”

4.23.22 Back Blast – 5 year Convergence at The O-riginal

The Back Blast. Ever so important. It lets us know what we did. It reminds us of who was there. It’s a Q’s representation of the CSAUP (completely stupid and utterly pointless) stuff that one would translate from the wienke to real life. (Pause a second to take this next one in…) And sometimes itContinue reading “4.23.22 Back Blast – 5 year Convergence at The O-riginal”

Pre-blast: 6/28/22 – Bag of Wrenches @ The O
