Always 70 and Sunny

The tree with the leaves


17 of the faithful and 1 FNG circled around the flag and discussions were centered around the lack of a certain company wrapped truck.

0600 and we were off to mosey to the first circle for the COP.

25xSSH, 15xMerkin, 10xDQ, 10xPeterParker, 10xCrunchy Frog

Mosey to the side of the Carillon for Touch a tree/Tag a partner.

  • Round 1 – Partner 1 bear crawl to tree 1, run to touch 2 more,  Partner 2 AMRAP merkins
  • Round 2 – 5 trees, American Hammer

Mosey to Rusty Cage.  Partner up. 10 pull ups,  run to fire hydrant 9 WWII, 8 pull ups, 7 WWII, continue to 1.

Plankarama at the cage.  Then, 5 Jerkins each,  10 merkins for 2 rounds.

Amphitheater time. LBCS while waiting for the 6.

  • 5 derkins each step going down.   Flipper led plankarama at the bottom.

Mosey up to the circle for Mary. Flutter Kicks, Dollies, American Hammer, LBCS.

Ring of Fire – 10 merkins and back to the flag.



Today is International Men’s Day, in celebration of that YHC decided to do what typical F3 RVA men do and get after it early in the morning.  F3 is a group that embodies what the day is about,  providing support, encouragement and leadership among men.

Welcome to FNG Spencer Monroe,  now Coyote Ugly, a friend of Gumbo and I from a previous life.  According to him he almost splashed merlot but made it through and agrees that he is better for it.  Hopefully we’ll get him back soon. 

YHC threw out some instructions at the Rusty Cage that confused everyone, including YHC.  Unfortunately Fudd wasn’t there to clarify.  Run to the fire hydrant,  it’s dark, where is that?  By the tree with the leaves…in the middle of the stuff, with the bark and limbs.  Luckily some of the regulars were there to translate.  You against you, even when giving out instructions.

Cliffhanger made another showing after YHC bribed him with bacon at ET and he did more merkins than he ever has before.  Flipper led the PAX down the amphitheater derkins after the box jumps wasted most everyone else except Helix who bounced up the steps like a blue ball.  Fudd posted after running to the AO, which is always impressive and makes us wonder, is he the next SAAB?  Fun at ET afterwards as always where we discussed naming and tried to explain to Cliffhanger how they made a movie about Coyote Ugly.  Glad TwoCan could join us for his first venture to ET, I think the lure of the 2nd F and eggs will bring him back.

Great work pushing through by everyone.  

Everything is coming up Rosie.

  1. Strong Q as usual Rosie. The first half especially took its toll. So glad we got Coyote Ugly out. He will be a great addition to the PAX – hope he comes back soon and often.

    Great second F at ET. Always a blast, including Flipper’s explanation of the true meaning of Coyote Ugly.

  2. Great Q Rosie! That’s the best way to start a Saturday.

    Welcome Coyote Ugly and great job to Cliffhanger.


  3. Great Q Rosie! Cliffhanger rocked it. No surprise there as he has a good man to look up to.

    Keep up the good work fellas.

  4. Great backblast! I was rolling from “Coyote Ugly” to the sign off. Love it all!

    Welcome to Coyote Ugly, and great to see Lola back out there.
