Three brave souls fought off the fartsack on a quiet Saturday morning. As expected, the PAX was somewhat limited with 3 noble warriors representing F3 in an ultra marathon, some being out of town and White Deer’s chauffeur participating in the ultramarathon. COP (IC): SSH – 20X Helicopters – 15X Arm Circles – 10X/5X/10X/5X Don Quixotes – 15X The Thang: The intent of the morning was for an “Adderall-style” workout in which each member would alternate carrying the 20-lb kettlebell for the entire hour. That was abandoned rather quickly… We began with a mosey around the perimeter of the…

Wet as it was, it was a good morning not to be running 6.2 miles in a Strawberry Shortcake costume. Instead, we gathered eight in western Henrico County – a good bit removed from Monument Avenue – for another installment of GridIron. As the final few in our group were locking car doors and heading over to our established circle, we knocked out some Invisible Jump Ropes. Following these, we moseyed to the extensive Pillars of Pain (bus shelter) adjacent to Short Pump Middle School for the rest of the startup COP, including IWs, DQs, Hillbillies, Cherry Pickers, and Arm…
