YHC’s (Your Humble Correspondent’s) 28th birthday started out eerily similar to last year with Space Monkey picking him up and chauffeuring him to the workout. However, the circumstances warranting the ride were much more enjoyable this year (a long drive out to RuckHill today compared to a wrecked vehicle last year). For a full description, check out the backblast from a year ago. http://f3rva.org/2018/01/17/birthday-q-and-goodbye-to-the-civic/ 6 PAX (1 FNG) at RuckHill. YHC introduced himself to two PAX this morning. FNG (Tread) who was EH’d while rucking by McGruff and a long-time PAX member Abba who has shaven his beard off. Without it,…

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).

Saturday 10/27: Get up early on Saturday morning to…

We welcomed back two recent FNGs (Sooner and Teach) and added another FNG to the PAX (Upgrade). Sooner gets credit for backblast title for his comment during the slew of “block” exercises as we make our way through the F3 Exercise list (https://f3nation.com/exercises/). Recap of the ground rules: 1. Begin where the previous Q left off. A-Z followed by numbers and special characters. 2. You MUST prepare the Q. Do NOT arrive at the AO, then pull up the website and start. If you do this, you will be reading more than Q’ing and may not understand the description. Suggestion…

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. …
