For all of those who are interested and available to go with me, I am planning a trip to Wilmington, NC to assist in hurricane Florence recovery and donate time and goods for the weekend of 10/26-10/28.  Here is the basic plan: Friday 10/26: Load up the trucks and leave Hampton Roads after work (approx. 6pm). Drive to my in-laws’ house in Angier, NC (arrive approx. 9:30pm).  They have plenty of room for anyone that wants to come (they can comfortably house about 15 visitors).  We will spend the night there. Saturday 10/27: Get up early on Saturday morning to…

Brothers! Lug Nut and I need your (yes YOUR) help. In one month, the Richmond Community Toolbank is hosting our annual fundraiser, Hammers & Ales. We need you, your Ms AND your friends to make this the success it deserves to be. Over the next month YHC will be spreading the Hammers & Ales good news to the popped collars of Tuckahoe, to the gluten free hipsters of Richmond Proper, to the Wildlings of DaVille, and to the reddened necks of my native SOJ. Our goal is to get more than 250 people to attend this year, so we need…

To all who shall these presents greetings! It is almost that time again!  Hampton Roads is celebrating another year of giving it away.  Our second anniversary convergence will be held at StinkHill on November 3rd at the normal start time of 0700.  Beat down details are still to follow.  There will also be second F and food (yet another F?) afterwards for those who can make it to which families are welcome.  Specifics are still being ironed out.  Look for another pre-blast in the near future for more information. Save the Date!!!! We are only 30 days out! RVA: You…

During my still relatively short time at F3, I have struggled to comprehend why some FNG’s stick it out and some don’t. Often, guys that I feel will certainly stick, are never to be heard from again. EHing guys to give it a try doesn’t seem to be a problem, but getting them back for that second cup of coffee can be difficult. Certainly many of those “one and dones” were fitter than I and struggled far less at their first post. What was different? Why was I one of the fortunate few while others fail to see the blessing…

High Impact Men of Hampton Roads, It has been entirely too long since my last Big Data Update, but this past month was just too impressive to let the opportunity slip away.  Bottom Line Up Front: although August 2018 was a record month for us, September was even better. First and foremost, we had 9 new FNGs! Welcome KiloVolt, Shakespeare, Taps, Hyzer, Tanker, Oscar, Dr. J, Chief, and Reaper!  Thanks for coming out, and we look forward to continuing to see you in the gloom. We also had a whopping 4 VQs, #SecondBell.  #TClaps to Catapult, Grinder, Doomsday, and Marvel. …

For a number of years the Healing Place, a residential program for men in recovery from addiction, has had a training team for the Monument Avenue 10k. This year they are trying a team for the 8k race that is attached to the Richmond Marathon. They started on Saturday, but only six of the twelve residents who had signed up showed up. Yesterday I went to their all-hands-on-deck community meeting to try to recruit a few new men and remind the others about accountability. I told them to let me know if there was anything holding them back and we…

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dZPQdZLyHYE The region with the most PAX members who DOUBLE-DIP at this Saturday’s 4-year convergence will take home the Ghost Flag. To DOUBLE-DIP, you MUST post for the 0600 bootcamp and then either (a) participate as a runner in the Vita course race or (b) post for the FNG bootcamp that J-ville is leading. Break out of the FS early on Saturday, represent your region and DOUBLE DIP baby! SYITG Gumbo

We have a solid track record of bringing FNGs out to our annual F3RVA birthday party/ convergence. To keep that tradition alive, we will offer an optional FNG-friendly bootcamp at 0700 in addition to the 0600 bootcamp and 0715 AM run. This will also give those who are unable to compete in the run due to injuries or other causes a double-dip option. Please ping Phonics or me if you have any questions. See ya’ in the gloom! Jville

Having finally dug out and recovered from what was essentially a month of vacations for #bigdata (insert mocking comment here), YHC took the opportunity this morning to listen to the substitute podcast episodes 97 and 97.75.  Considering I get questions on how #bigdata works on a weekly basis, I figured now was as good a time as any to clarify exactly how it all works. It all begins with the backblast. Someone writes a backblast with the Date, QIC and the PAX list.  They tag a region and add a tag for the AO.  Nothing fancy here as this always…
