Fortunately for Orville, Chum Bucket was there to remind him that Hello Dollies and Rosalitas are not the same exercise. Initial burpees got the PAX a bit winded, but folks rounded into form by the time we hit the amphitheater. T-claps to Goldberg for making it through a tough first workout. Also T-claps to Bambino, as this was only his second F3 workout ever. Keep up the hard work, fellas.

Alas, my time with the faithful PAX of Richmond is drawing to a close. The light of my life and I are headed west, probably into a sunset. Oregon awaits, and we’ll be moving out June 1. T-claps to everyone I’ve had the pleasure of running, sweating, and burpeeing with over the past 8 months! Keep it going strong, and if you’re every in the Portland area let me know and we’ll knock out a few merkins together.

  1. Chum Bucket on

    Nice Q, Orville. Hope the relocation goes well. Stop by and see us when you are back east.

  2. Welcome Goldberg and great to hear Bambino is in the mix. I’m bummer to have missed an Orville workout. They are always tough! Much tougher than a Toga or Fudd Q! Have a great time in the north west!

  3. Dude WTH!? I think I knew there was a big chance of you leaving, but I never heard the final announcement. Thanks for helping RVA get F3 going, and thanks for all the great leadership at our workouts. You will be missed, and best of luck with the vegan pizza composting supply company.., or whatever it is that people do out there. Make sure you post when you get back this way.

  4. Orville, Best of luck with the Move west, thanks for being out there with us and taking a lead! Sorry to miss your Final east coast Q!

  5. Döner Kebab on

    I just read this post…and promptly poured some IPA down the drain for my homie, Orville. We’ll miss you…and the double hate.
