17 men got better today on a fine morning in the gloom.  Skeeters were hiding (may have something to do with the DEET) and a cool breeze danced in the Badlands.  Theme of the day is Hope. Warmup-SSH, LittleBabyArmCircles F&B, Moroccan Night Clubs, Lasso, Cherry Pickers, Windmills(All IC with varying counts), LimpMember (OYO) Thang-YHC promised […]

Do You Feel Lucky?

  12 PAX left the comfort of their fart sack and air-conditioned homes to post in the mid-summer’s gloom at Anchor. YHC was very fortunate to have made this morning’s beatdown. YHC was running just a tad bit late, but managed to make it with time to spare, which is quite an accomplishment when waking […]

THOU SHALT NOT JUDGE! 7-17-18

Q awoke around 4am, well before the 4:50am alarm, due to the excitement (and stress of being late) of today’s workout. 8 additional PAX would arrive not knowing what the “run day” had in store for them. They would soon be educated on not “judging” others, especially their taste in music! After a brief biography […]

July 16th , 2018 marked the first anniversary of Ponte Vedra’s Badlands AO.

YHC was surfing through the F3 Nation web site the other day and was reminded of the five principles that define an F3 workout. He wondered – has the pax committed this to memory? (YHC certainly had not, but then did so). YHC’s original plan was to spring a pop quiz on the unsuspecting pax […]

Rucking Wednesday

Four Pax met up and Friendship Fountain this morning for a trip to Stage coach. We headed out a couple of minutes off schedule and conquered the beautiful Blue Beast that leads into downtown. Once at Stage Coach we proceeded to do some stair work, on level 2 we did lunges across the parking lot, level […]

13 Men braved the gloom @ 5:30 with heat of 75 and humidity of 95% this morning in the Badlands of Davis Park. Tuesdays are normally Run or Bike, but today I felt like it was a log day with a side of running. Quote for this morning: Coming Together is a Beginning, Keeping together […]

The Third 500

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Backblasts

12 men descended on the Badlands for chest-a-rama Monday!  YHC was sluggish after two weeks of Chicago pizza, burgers, ribs, Italian Beef, Italian Sausage, Beer.   Rinse and Repeat that list and add some.  Nevertheless, YHC signed up to Q because he knew that fartsacking would be in order this Monday without a definitive commitment.   When the PAX […]
