Choose Wisely

As YHC rolled outta bed the faint smell of fresh cut grass and Sawgrass Splash tickled the nostrils.   Am I dreaming?  Is this heaven, nope, and it ain’t Iowa either (anyone tell me the movie reference?) it’s the day after TPC and time to get after it. 14 PAX fought the fartsack urge this […]

14 Pax braved the conditions (An Ideal 65 degrees) for a beatdown with absolutely no traveling (except for Heisenberg)… no cardio (unless you count the mosey from the parking lot to the playground). YHC had one goal in mind and that was to work the upper body in an attempt to transform the “Puny Pax” […]

Salute Our Troops

  15 Strong Pax fought their way out of the fartsack to come honor the troops, get dirty, and support the VQ. It was a perfect gloom, 66 degrees and breezy.  Some veterans were understandably absent, nursing wounds from the recent Spartan battle, yet several Spartan soldiers burst through the gloom to continue the fight this […]

Anniversary Block Party

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Backblasts

When special days fall on a Wednesday, some of us tend to celebrate the entire week instead of just the day. 13 HIM posted in the NE Florida Spring gloom for this anniversary block party. It has been said if you don’t know your history, you are doomed to repeat it. Well, it has become […]

Mindful Movement

10 HIM’s of the Badlands assembled on a breezy and cool April morning to sharpen iron, enjoy some Broga and Fellowship. As the appointed hour drew near YHC was particularly glad to see that 9 other PAX were as excited as me to post this morning. Today was about mindfulness…mindful thinking, mindful actions and mindful […]

Dynamic Duo / Judgement Day

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Backblasts

Eleven PAX were NOT scared of “melting” and arrived at Badland’s ready to accept the Q’s challenge of “not being THAT GUY!” (THAT GUY who fartsacks, later reads the Backblast and Slack comments and wishes he had went to F3!) Unfortunately, there were several THAT GUYS on this wet Monday morning. Although the forecast indicated […]
