Find A Challenge

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Backblasts

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 […]

It’s Never Too Late For…….

YHC arrived on this wet and humid morning with his father-in-law.   Despite the FNG’s 70 years of age, he engaged and endured the workout.   YHC encouraged the PAX to consider and complete the statement- It’s Never Too Late For….  Although YHC’s shirt completed the statement with “Fitness,” any of us could find other areas that […]

The Six

13 dedicated men arrived to the Badlands ready for a beatdown on this mild and humid Thursday morning. Some mumblechatter focused on the Duke’s player (Zion) hurting his knee in response to a Nike shoe malfunction.  Airbags did not seem at all bothered considering his Tar Heels prevailed in the game.  With regard to theme, YHC borrowed […]

Brotherhood

YHC rolled into Davis Parking on this rainy and cool morning.  Peg was strapping on his weight vest.  Blackout was doing his obligatory stretching (one can only assume OYO) behind his Sedan, and Gravy showed up with the flag.  At the outset, YHC encouraged the PAX (7 strong) to consider the meaning of brotherhood. Warm-O-Rama: Michael […]

What is your donut?

5 men descended on the Badlands on this crisp and clear morning.  The discussion focused on the Gate Run and the preparation involved.  YHC did not plan a complicated workout as he wanted to help those preparing for the race with a good old fashioned run.  When the clock struck 5:30, the PAX was off […]

Patience

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Backblasts

23 men, including 2 FNGs, descended on the Badlands.   Mumblechatter, at least directed at YHC, concerned the Bears’ disappointing loss the night before and the missed field goal that was ever so close.  YHC explained to the PAX that his value for 2019 is patience.  He quoted the 19th Century pastor, Phillip Brooks: “The trouble […]
