Stretching the AO


Two became three Pax when NightCrawler used his best recon skills and joined Attila and YHC to push the AO boundaries on a run well outside the GridIron turf. It was a beautiful and crisp morning but the coldness quickly disappeared during the course of the following:

X25 SSHs, X25 IWs, and X10 Merkins all in 4-ct cadence.


Admittedly, what YHC calls a run the Pax would call a mosey. In any event, the run/mosey took the Pax from the Pouncy Tract parking lot to the front of the school, to the back of the school and down past the newly-surfaced Battery, onto the heretofore undiscovered foot/bike path and through the tunnel under Twin Hickory Lake Drive. The Pax turned around and headed back with stops that included a couple hundred Merkins IC, a hundred APDs IC, fifty reverse partnerless leg tosses IC, a hundred Dips OYO, twenty-five fence press ups, a smattering of wall seats for time, fifty step ups OYO, fifty shoulder-elevated single leg/hip thrusts OYO, and fifty shoulder-grounded single leg/hip thrusts OYO. Back at the parking lot we concluded with three minutes of Mary of Hello Dollies, Rosalitas, and Dead Bugs. We covered a couple miles of ground all told.


Counterama and Namerama – nice 30/40/50 mix


– 3rd F push in Hanover reported by YHC. Thursday at the Rise & Shine at 0630: super solid group of HIMs ready to tackle all subjects in quest for spiritual growth and discernment; and

– J’ville away this morning at his second posting of six week launch of F3 Hampton Roads; T-Claps for his terrific leadership in organizing the support for DreamLiner and the F3 HR Pax. T-Claps also to all the F3 RVA Pax who Qed and/or posted at Mt. Trashmore these last six weeks. Nicely done.

Closing communal prayer – thanksgiving, gratitude, and supplication.


After a brief warmup Attila observed “it looks like we’re it” so we set out to bust the AO limits. A determined NightCrawler eyeballed us from afar just as we were about to hit the woods and we were grateful to have him join us. Attila seemed to enjoy the run/mosey, kindly retreating a couple times to keep the Pax together on the return trip.

Very little MumbleChatter this morning, largely attributable to the unanticipated absence of the garrulous WhiteDeer.

As usual, a very fine conversation and 2nd F at Coffeeteria.

The people walking in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of deep darkness a light has dawned.

  1. Yes, at Einstein’s on Pump just south of the intersection with West Broad, about a mile or two from the AO. BTW, Attila just realized he was your classmate at UVA and that you have a common friend in whose wedding you both served.
