18 sunrise samurais cut through the humidity this morning in order to escape the fartsack to gather at WDog for Wednesday morning beatdown and it went a little something like this…
Circle up in front of the Carillon SSH x 25
Helicopters x 10
Don Quixote x 10
Imperial Walkers x 10 Russian Soldiers x 10 Merkins x 10
LBC x 25
Short theatrical mosey to the orchestra pit of the Amphitheater of Pain (most underrated Motley Crue album)
11’s – burpees at the bottom, V-ups at the top. Thanks for Kubota for the technically exquisite demonstration of a V-up
Native American Run to the bottom or Love Hill
11’s at the amphitheater took longer in practice than they did your humble correspondent’s (YHC) imagination so he improvised with everybody’s favorite…. Partner Carry w Booya Merkins to the rim of the Valley of Doubt.
Dive Bombing the Valley of Doubt – 3 dive-bombers on this side, 4 on that side, 5 on this side – plank. That was fun, repeato. Again – thanks Kubota for the demo.
Time is short so back to the flag for…
LBC x 30
6 inches x 20
Alabama Prom Dates x 20 Hello Dolly x 20
All numbers approximate
Memorial Day Convergence – 7:00 at Tredegar. Bring a friend. Hot Potato Q for one hour. Second F to follow at ETs
Summer challenge starts Saturday. Phonics will post a pre-blast soon. Long and the short of it is that you aim to hit every AO this summer. Should be fun. Come to the convergence to get the bonus AO.
Lab Rat and Shakedown running at 11:30 like every Wednesday. Meeting Behind the Governor’s mansion – Text me if you want to meet en route (8043394365).
YHC took us out – Sugar Shack donuts and cold waters after
Ghost Flag: Since I won the GF repping SOJ I decided that WDog is neutral ground – that being said, Richmond Proper had the numbers though Tuckahoe and SOJ came strong. Vinny was kind enough to let me Q this morning even though he had his name on the Q sheet – since it was my 1 year he let me switch that out a couple weeks back Vinny left with the flag today and has some fun planned. Stay tuned
One year ago today, after being EHd by Viral, I posted for the first time at NoToll. It was raining and nobody seemed to notice. I liked that. I was hooked almost immediately. Over the last year F3 has become such an important part of my life that I can’t believe it took so long to find it to begin with. I wondered early if a freak like me would fit in with you gentleman of distinction and then I realized you are just a bunch of bozos like me (more or less). As I said in my prayer, I wake up every day grateful for another day and F3 is no small part of why I am grateful. Thank you guys for your hard work this morning and for doing what you do. I can be a bit of a cornball but screw it – I gotta be me. This thing we do is a blessing and we need to make sure we share it and keep it going for the next guy that needs it.
Have a great day guys!! See y’all in the gloom!
