Saturday Morning Lights


It was a dreary, drizzly autumn morning, but 13 brave souls withstood the elements to witness Orville’s virgin Q. Clear eyes, full hearts, can’t loose…it was like Friday Night Lights on Saturday…not at night. Keeping with the football theme, the spirit of #KeithWalton was with us all during our workout (see photo).

Orville took us out


T-claps to the youngest FNG to come to a Richmond F3 boot camp so far: Johnsonville’s son, Cheetah! Good #mumblechatter during the pairing up exercises. Winning team of Conspiracy & Swing State receive nearly 5,000 points for doing the most situps. T-claps, boys! Reassuring & encouraging smiles from Loose Goose kept me going in the right direction for my first Q. Backwards bear crawls up a short hill turned out to be the favorite exercise of the morning for Brain Tumor, as well as most of the PAX, I think. Toga (and others who will go unmentioned here but whose names rhyme with “Drum Tucket” and “Bronsonville”) think a tackling drill is the logical next step for the #keithwalton. We’ll see about that.

Stay safe this weekend, fellas.
