Today’s beatdown was the same workout (plus some and modified for the AO) Bleeder threw at the PAX on this date 2 years ago for a cool Saturday DogPile that had but a mere 8 post.  A few things that stood out that day to YHC.  One, why are jumping jacks and push-ups called side straddle hops and merkins?  Two, these guys workout in this kind of weather?  Laughable now.  It was basically sunny and 70 (clear and 40) that day.  YHC has since posted in monsoon-like rain, crawled through a river of raw sewage, faced howling winds that nearly carried Lockjaw and his pants off the Nickel Bridge, and slung cinder blocks in single digit temps.  Three, these guys are legit.  Blood Test was one of the seven that day and running circles around YHC at Double Respect plus.  Four, this is definitely for me.  Little did YHC know what F3 would become in his life.  YHC knew he’d had a great workout, but knew nothing of the 2nd and 3rd F to come.  Lastly, what the heck is an EF Hutton?

Either the BB from that workout left out a number of details, or the PAX today obliterated that workout in half the time, because YHC was forced to ad lib half the workout.  No doubt the PAX has made strides.  Attila, Honeydo, and Garbage Plate all crushed it without a thought of a 10 count.

It’s been an awesome 2 years in the PAX.  YHC never imagined completing a half marathon or a 200+ mile relay race, or simply pushing through an all burpee Beast at a quarter of 6 in the morning, but those things all became a reality thanks to the support, inspiration, and grit YHC gleans from this group every day.  YHC used to believe he had limits, thanks to F3, YHC believes limits are nothing more than silly suggestions.  YHC is grateful for the men of F3 RVA and looks forward to many years to come.

Here’s the BB from that date.  8 PAX and 2 comments for a Dogpile Q, my how things have changed.

A quiet Saturday until…


Monday evening Punisher

When EF Hutton speaks, people listen.


  1. I was there at your first post and glad to be there this morning. This morning was first time I regret not wearing my winter gloves as grass was cold and wet. Ah winter is upon is, another winter challenge of Shorts Only Posting. Who else is SOP for this winter?

  2. Swirly (F3 Corporate) on

    Great BB – EF Hutton – I remember your first workout …
    No limits baby – love it !
    See y’all in the gloom.

  3. EF solid beat down! Well written Backblast! Nice work! EF Hutton on makes statements, no suggestions.

  4. Happy postiversary EF. That first workout doesn’t seem like that long ago, I think it was my first Dogpile. I am sure we’ll come up with more silly suggestions.

  5. I was SOP last winter until the temps dropped below 0 for a day, the tights came out that day. I’m in for a silly suggestion like that.
