Hampton Roads Is All In!


14 Redwoods witnessed a beautiful sunrise from atop Mt. Trashmore at the inaugural planting of the Hampton Roads shovel flag.  It begins again, and here’s how it went down:

Mosey to shovel flag for warm-up COP: 15 SSH, 15 Imperial Walkers, 15 Don Quixote, 10 Merkins, 15 LBCs

Mosey 1st field: 50% run, 75% run, Karaoke x2, 2x bear crawl half the field then run, 2x crab walk half the field then run, Plankarama

Mosey up steps to top of Mt. Trashmore, enjoy an amazing sunrise, 10 merkins, 10 flutter kicks from side of hill, 10 derkins, run down steps and complete 10 incline merkins

Mosey back to field and partner up for LBCs while partner touches 5 trees, repeato x2

Mosey back to shovel flag for 5 Minutes of Mary: LBC, Alabama Prom Dates, Hello Dolly, Rosalita, Superman/American Hero

Moleskin:  Mount Trashmore may not sound glorious, but the newest F3 AO has tons of potential for future beatdowns.  The PAX took up the challenge and crushed the first workout, and YHC knows that this group is going to kill it in the Hampton Roads area.  You could see the red pill taking hold as they pushed themselves through the first of many to come.  There were several highlights, and here are a few of the better ones:

  • YHC left his shoes on the back porch, but Lab Rat packs 3 pairs and was ready to help a Q out.  Lab Rat also left one of his shirts in the Toga Mobile just to get a call back.  YHC has seen this trick before and will not fall for it.
  • Splinter and Upchuck got to meet a contingent of Campos in the parking lot prior to launch.  There were some interesting differences, and some pleasantries were exchanged.
  • Dreamliner is pumped about growing the PAX, and his energy is contagious.
  • Space Monkey loves his new moniker and can face plant during bear crawls with the best of them.
  • Best wishes to Average Joe as he gets ready for his Spartan Race and then rehabs the knee (note: not F3 related)
  • We’ll be anticipating the announcement of Priorities’ new addition.
  • Mentos sighs when Lab Rat keeps talking just like everyone in the RVA PAX.
  • Thanks to the RVA PAX for making the trip!

It was a huge honor to lead this morning and be a part of a growing F3 Nation.  Pass it on #leap

  1. *Insert tagline of the day here for this bb.

    Just kidding, awesome job today, Toga! We used only a small portion of that AO, leaving much to be uncovered in the future. Watching Dreamliner get almost giddy with excitement was just plain awesome, he has been waiting a long time for this!

    I am proud to be involved in passing along something that means so much to me.

    Viva la Tidewater!

  2. Great Q Toga. Way to show the way.

    There was a moment where I thought you only wanted to learn about 200 yards of the AO, then we took the 71 stairs to the top. Great view at sunrise!

    Welcome to all the FNGs and great to meet Dreamliner. The dream had come true!

  3. It was a great morning to road trip out there. Thanks to Toga for strong leadership and to the F3Richmond team for strong support. Great to meet the FNGs. This looks like a group that can lead and grow a great F3HamptonRoads region.

  4. Toga, great inaugural Q for F3hamptonroads. And yes I am “giddy” with excitement to see where this goes. It would be possible though without the support of the #HIMs like each of you that have went before me and to the Big Man Upstairs. SYITG

  5. Pushing through a Inargural Toga Q is a great way to get things moving in Hampton Roads. Great work by all. Not everyone is a talkative @LabRat. Can’t wait to get down there to visit Mt Trashmore and F3 Hampton Roads.

  6. Realized I didn’t learn how to type in high school. What I mean to say was “It would NOT be possible without …” Thanks again.
