YHC arrived at Poseidon to find, to his surprise, the Sharks  (semi-pro football team) occupying the football field.  YHC had planned a workout at Poseidon, mostly on the football field, that would culminate in a football game.  Jumanji recommended a mosey to the beach as an alternative.  YHC concurred and realized this unexpected development would […]

Strengths!

YHC descended on the Badlands this Tuesday morning to find a respectable turnout.   8 men in total which is impressive for run day.  The theme of the day was strengths.  While F3 necessarily and justifiably encourages men to consider their shortcomings and issues, YHC asked what are your strengths.   Let’s use them to better ourselves, […]

Unstoppable Part IV

The theme of the week has been unstoppable!  QIC awoke wanting to take the PAX to the beach for some fun in the sand.  The turnout was impressive and the camaraderie delightful.  QIC reminded the PAX that we needed to be unstoppable in the most important areas of our lives. Warm-O-Rama: SSH 10 IC, Reacher […]

Bridge to Somewhere

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Backblasts

6 men descended on the Badlands with run day on their minds.   QIC was not secretive about the plan.  This would be a bridge suicide day, but the theme was Bridge to Somewhere as opposed to the more commonly used Bridge to Nowhere.   QIC encouraged the PAX to find those bridges to somewhere and use […]

Have you identified your challenge?

Find A Challenge

9 brave souls arrived at the Badlands for a run day.  It was obvious some did not realize the QIC planned bridge suicides.   At the outset, the QIC challenged the PAX to find a challenge to conquer- whether a race, weight loss, etc. Warm-O-Rama:  Limb Member OYO, Reacher IC, SSH IC, 10 HR merkins, 10 […]

Overcome

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Backblasts

9 PAX descended on the Badlands expecting a bear crawl marathon,  but the QIC called an audible and opted for a more traditional beatdown.  As the QIC is apt to promote a word or value of the day, the word of the today was/is overcome.   QIC challenged the PAX to overcome fears, past mistakes, thoughts […]
