8 High Impact Men fought the forces of the fartsack and mustered enough courage to post at Boondocks. YHC had a plan in place, but a lack of oxygen to his brain following a solo Dolly and an unexpected turn of events resulted in a few audibles being called. With 3 FNGs amongst the Pax, […]

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 […]

Downpainment

Despite YHCs best efforts to scare the PAX with pre-beatdown Slack chatter of death and doom, 23 posted anyway on this perfect 50 degree Florida morning.

6 Pax enjoyed the moderate temperatures, super flat field and tunes led by the Foos to welcome another beautiful day.  Wednesdays 5:30AM new workout at Sunshine Park in Jacksonville Beach.  Great facility, open to all men, free of charge (unlike our Gladiator friends who do have the jump on us by posting at 5AM).  EH […]

Overcoming Mountains

4 Pax joined me for a run day on a beautiful morning in the Badlands. Was very excited to see Snooki out there ready to go. This was a VQ of sorts, as it was my first running Q, but it was a strategic Q. Today the pax were challenged to think about the mountains […]
