On Wings Like Eagles…

Another delightful run day in the Badlands! 8 pax joined YHC in the nippy 45 degree air, eager (not so much…) to mosey. YHC posed this important question in the warm up: What will you do when (not if) you face a crushing loss or defeat? YHC took the opportunity to dedicate this workout to […]

MOVE ON!

YHC greeted 15 (mostly) smiling faces in the warmish Poseidon gloom, eager to begin the weekend and end the year on a positive note. With this sentiment, YHC reminded that Pax that the past is behind us; that we’ve all done things we wished we hadn’t last year, or missed on things we should have […]

A Leader…On The Fly

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Backblasts

Five cheerful faces greeted YHC in the pre-dawn, 45 degree gloom. Though eager to get moving (and thus warm), the Pax listen to YHC blather on about leadership and stuff (blah, blah, blah). He explained that on our 4 mile Tuesday jaunt, each man must be a leader… on the fly. Each man will choose […]

We lost our 41st president last week. George H.W. Bush. In 1990, Bush spearheaded the creation of the 1000 Points of Light Foundation, the goal of which was to promote private, non-governmental solutions to social problems. There are 18 street lights in Davis Park, We will visit each one in his honor; we will do […]

Just Show Up…

20 of Ponte Vedra’s finest, including a special guest from F3 Charleston (welcome, Osceola!) united following an enjoyable (though perhaps slothful..?) Thanksgiving holiday. It was evident from the collective attitude and smiling faces that all were ready to get after it! For the most part… As no one had committed to the Q for this […]

Fall Down 7 times…Get up 8

It was truly a gloom fest at Davis Park this morning. Dense fog and a light mist in the air greeted YHC upon his 515 arrival. Football mumblechatter and post- weekend groans filled the air as the Pax ‘cheerfully’ arrived. YHC began the morning from Nelson Mandela: Don’t judge me by my success, rather, by […]

Thermometer or Thermostat?

9 Pax cheerfully (not so much…) greeted the Davis Park gloom with laser- focused intentions (not so much…) of crushing another 3+ mile Badlands Run Day (not so much…). Well… we showed, we ran, and here’s what went down… Warm up limp member down dog calf stretch partner quad stretch Off we went, as a […]

Change your mind– Change your life

Despite a hurricane on the horizon and YHC’s pre-blast prediction of a dismal beatdown, 13 brave souls arrived with running shoes on. They were uncertain but committed. They were ready for the unknown, confident that in the end, they would overcome. They were (duh, duh, duh…cue the dramatic music…), BADLANDERS!! Whether verbalized or not, each […]
