BRR registration is open and it has been selling out earlier and earlier each year.  So, we are going to register for the big race in the next couple weeks.

First post after one furlong left into the Woolridge chute, then 9 furlongs to Midlothian Turnpike (left), 9 furlongs to Charter Colony (left), and 8 furlongs to Woolridge (left).  Down the backstretch for 5 furlongs to the Urban Farmhouse and a slow trot for 3…

Our next F3 Hampton Roads CSAUP is the GORUCK Light in Charlottesville VA on December 9th at 2pm.  The Light event is approximately 4-5 hours long.  If your over 150lbs you only have to carry 20 lbs.  YHC has a ton of bricks that everyone can use for the 20 lb weight.  This is a great opportunity to get introduced to goruck for the first time with your F3 brothers.  If you can run a 5k you can complete a goruck light.  As most of you know Mentos has been doing goruck events since F3HR launched.  He will be doing…

YHC has heard lots of mumble-chatter recently (Gomer Pyle, Shake Down, Hardywood, among others) about starting a 2nd hour workout on Saturdays about once a month.  No time like the present. Launch date will be October 21, 2017, for Double Dog (permanent name TBD).  YHC has the Q for Hour 1.  Anyone interested in the 2nd Hour of Power should plan to stick around after Dog Pile.  Basic plan will be to finish up Dog Pile (COT, etc.), take 5 or so to re-fuel, and start the 2nd hour about 7:10 a.m.  YHC will take the Q to start followed…

By my number-cruncing, it added up to 60 different people posting at one or both workouts, with 10 posting early and not late, 21 posting late and not early, and the balance double-dipping.  It was a perfect early autumn morning, and the grass, sand, and pavement were bathed in chilly morning dew, which we…
