Run, Rum & Recovery

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Backblasts

BigBird & Snuffy were no shows this morning but had an excused absence… something about a baby being born?  Congrats Grandpa Snuff & Uncle Bird! Feeling lost without BigBird, Seatdown, Drone, Pyro, Whiff, Jumanji, Septum and the “Fastholes”, Bing and I decided to journey to Stagecoach for some running & active recovery exercises.  We attacked […]

8 Pax posted in the gloomidity that only a late July morning in Florida can bring. It is getting late in the summer, which can only mean one thing: training camp! The Jags are back in town following a surprising and impressive season. YHC never played organized football (unless you count intramural flag football), but […]

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 arrived in the Badlands for his second Q of the week. He surveyed the puddles and decided to push the PAX through the puddles. The weather was muggy with 100% humidity. Mumblechatter consisted of injuries and of the FNG (Mike Ryan) who runs 12 miles a day. YHC would soon find out the FNG’s […]

Do Not Fear The Shadow

YHC arrived extra early to survey the Badlands. Feeling the extreme humidity he declared it run day. Mumblechatter focused mostly on the Mudrun and injuries. YHC admonished the PAX to turn from the shadow toward the light. A shadow is a dark area where light from a light source is blocked by an opaque object. […]
