Cinco de Mayo Bridge Shots

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Backblasts

Sorry for the late backblast. Last Tuesday 10 PAX descended upon Davis Park for the first run day post Covid-19. In honor of Cinco de Mayo, we did 4 bridge shots. After warm up stretches, we moseyed to the base of the 210 bridge at about a 8:45 pace. The Thang – Up and over […]

When Pyramids Fail

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Backblasts

Perfect weather awaited 8 HIMs who showed up for a run day. Lots of Spartan mumble chatter. Apparently Scholls is a beast. YHC threw out a teaser with the posting of a picture of the 210 bridge and a pyramid. The initial plan was to participate in Bridge Suicide pyramids (Lights 1-4 then lights 4-1). […]

River Run Training

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Backblasts

7 Pax descended upon the Badlands on a perfect morning for a mosey. The slack teaser was simple “River Run Training- I bet you can’t guess what that means”. Disclaimer was given, some light stretching was done, and we were off. Mosey to the base of the 210 bridge. Quick halt to receive the plan: […]

Step Up!

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Backblasts

16 men joined YHC on a beautiful morning in the Badlands. The theme of the day was “Step up”. Lately we have had a gap in PAX stepping up to Q. The message was simple- If I can Q, you can Q. And once you do it enough, you can just recycle fun Qs you […]

Biscuit and Gravy at HardNocs

We have all heard it said that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. That truth was not lost today for 13 (1 FNG!) men who descended upon HardNocs this foggy Saturday morning. The Cummings brothers worked together to provide the PAX with a healthy serving of Biscuit and Gravy. When all was […]

Kraken Warmup

The weather was perfect for a run day in the Badlands as 8 men strolled into Davis Park to get better. With the Kraken a few days away, YHC didn’t want to plan anything to taxing to make sure we save our legs and energy to tame the beast. The plan was simple- run out […]

Obstacles

It was a cold, cold morning in the Badlands. That didn’t stop 7 brave souls from joining YHC for a run day. It is exciting to see the run day hold steady in the numbers department. There were run days early in the year with 2 people. The Nantan even showed up for what YHC […]

Persistence

The word of the day today was Persistence. Persistence is defined as a firm or obstinate continuance in a course of action in spit of difficulty or opposition. YHC issued a challenge- is your life defined by persistence or by folding when times get tough. 12 Pax, and one FNG joined YHC on this chilly […]

POE

After an extended absence due to a calf injury, YHC has been exceedingly glad to be back out with the brothers in the gloom! I was even more excited when 14 PAX joined me for my first Q after being on the shelf. Yesterday on slack, I posted 3 letters for the PAX to consider […]
