A Real Nice Surprise


YHC couldn’t have been more surprised to wake up and find that it wasn’t raining than if he’d woken to find his head sewn to the carpet.  9 Faithful were greeted with a rather ungloomy spring morn for a total body beatdown.  Here’s how it went down.

As the bell was about to ring, YHC was pleased to see DK coming in hot with a few seconds to spare making for equal triple check numbers, though a solution for being short a coupon had yet to be determined.  Thanks to Jville for coming through with a Kettlebell.

True to form YHC stumbled out of the gate with a few COP counting mishaps.  Accountants can’t count, that’s a known fact.  There are machines for that.

YHC assumed because it was Tuesday and because the forecasts agreed, that the NoToll PAX could expect rain for this mid-April beatdown.  To YHC’s pleasant surprise the rains had seemed to move on by start time and the PAX had a rather pleasant morning in store.  Nevertheless YHC had planned accordingly and led the PAX through a workout designed to work all parts of the body while staying relatively dry.  Mid Triple Check YHC noticed that the poles along the parking lot looked so inviting (that’s what she said) and decided the agreeable weather called for an audible.  It seemed the PAX who had previously posted at Swirly’s famous Dogpile Polesmoker marathon had a moment of panic before realizing we only had enough poles for 2 rounds.

The Ring of Bear Crawl was met with a bit of grumbling and calls for a tighter circle.  DK treated the PAX to an RVA F3 history lesson on the origin of exercises named after Wilson’s wife.

As YHC admitted not knowing how to start the song for Superman, DK commented that YHC was showing his age.  That is not exactly true, YHC simply knows the George Costanza answering machine version better.  Believe it or not George isn’t at home, please leave a message at the beep, I must be out or I’d pick up the phone, where could I be, believe it or not I’m not home.

It was an honor to step out front and lead for a second time.  YHC appreciates the encouragement and welcomes constructive advice.



HDHH next Wednesday at Ellwood Thompson’s.

New AOs still need new Qs to lead.

May have missed one.

  1. Johnsonville on

    Good Q this morning! New leadership with creativity is a good thing, and the counting was not nearly as bad as EFH suggests.

  2. Great Q EFH! The weinke was the best I have ever seen. QB play sheet strapped to the wrist. Where can I get one of those?

  3. Honey Do RVA on

    Rosie, those are standard issue by Corporate after your VQ, you didn’t get one? Seriously sorry to miss this beatdown. Oh and I will pay for the wrist Weinke for DK.

  4. Must have gotten lost in the mail. We may also want to get DK and Swirly a watch so they don’t have to drag their phones around. Unless of course they need some good music like “Flower” by Moby

  5. Honey Do RVA on

    Said I missed that one at Dogpile. Maybe we need a F3 Grammys beatdown with Roxanne,Cupid Shuffle and Flower all in one musical maniacal Q…

  6. Döner Kebab on

    HoneyDo, I challenge you to make that happen while leading us in your “Honeymoon Suite”…
