Twenty-four regulars and one FNG posted today to help YHC remember and honor some very important people in his life, and to search for the why. And while we may never find the answer, may we rest easier knowing that “the purpose of our spiritual journey is to not replace the darkness with light, rather it’s to integrate and honor all the parts of ourselves … all of life’s energies.” – unattributed. We started off with a COT, where YHC shared a very personal story. On January 16, 2002 at 1:12 p.m. a classmate entered my law school and went…

Since I’ve messed up the date a few times, I want to confirm PuppyPile will be on Saturday January 26 at 7:05am following Dogpile.  It’s a great time for Dad’s and their kids to bond over some fun, exercise, and ET’s breakfast afterwards.  It will be my first PuppyPile Q, so suggestions are welcome!

3 Pax showed up for a cold beatdown at Ruckhill. There was some mumble chatter. Warmarama: Side Straddle hop, Imperial Walkers, Through the Tunnel, Shoulder Rolls, Michael Phelps The Thang: PAX put on their rucks and moseyed around the lake carrying 50lb sandbags. Every so often the PAX halted and knocked out 20 Squats, 20 Bicep curls, and 10 Merkins. The PAX continued this around the lake and up Stinkhill. Once at the exhaust pipe the PAX moseyed back to the flags. COT, Countarama, Namearama

4 Davillians that decided to not enjoy some extra sleep since the kids were on a delay, arrived at Atlee HS for some fun in the snow.

10 studs showed up on the day after a snow day to run.  Hill repeats were the call by the Q, but not Splinter type hill repeats.  The repeat was a 1 mile out and back from the lake to three chopt.  You can figure out the math on how many each of us did. NMM Pucker was flying today.  He lost six pounds in the last 15 days. The loop wasn’t quite 1 mile, so I owe you guys a couple of tenth’s, depending how far you ran. Swirly kept the 6’s in sight for most of the run.…

In the sub-zero gloom, 15 headband heroes assembled to face the sure hardships of Heartbreak Ridge. Already sweaty from many track laps, HANDSHAKE was first to greet YHC in the gloom. The ShovelFlag was planted and the PAX assembled. In loving support of YHC’s alma mater, GUMBO not only sported a skin tight headband, but also skin-tight red&yellow “Gym Dike” from his VMI Glory Days – bringing warmth to YHC’s heart and general amusement among the PAX. Coming up on the 0530 start, YHC reminded the PAX of our F3 Credo – “Leave no man behind, but leave no man…
