Inaugural Magnum PI Appreciation Day…And a tip of the cap to Bush 41



31 fired up men posted to Dogpile to start their weekend off the only way us F3 men know how…with a beatdown that went like this:

Start with a few pre-launch STACHE photos of YHC and Vinny looking strong with their Magnum PI shirts and dirty upper lips.  Glorious.  0530, ok, let’s roll…

Mosey to the circle in front of the amphitheater and around then circle up for a S.T.A.C.H.E. COP, including:

  • SSHs x12
  • Tempo Merkins x11
  • APDs x19
  • Copperhead Squats x80…in theory…no idea how many were actually done (NOTE to future Qs, don’t announce a number of exercises, unless its Arm Circles, unless you want the PAX to completely screw up the counting)
  • Monkey Humpers (for Wilson) x10
  • Eight Burpees

[NOTE: 12/11/1980 was the debut of Magnum PI.  It ran for 8 years.  The 10 Monkey Humpers were irrelevant (other than just to get the “H” and a little extra leg burn]


Mosey down to the Golden Triangle for Lindsays with an Ode To Bush 41 – Typical Lindsays (40s) starting near the circle with 30 LBCs and 10 2-ct Mountain Climbers + 1 Burpee (to add up to 41), then run down Rugby Road hill to the bottom and do 25 LBCs, 15 Mountain Climbers and 1 Burpee…continue until you get to 10-30-1.  Plank for the six.

Alternating Shoulder Taps IC x20

Mosey to the lawn for Four Corners, including 10 merkins, 20 box cutters, 30 jump squats and 40 SSHs…Al Gore for Six.

To the  bricks in front of the Carillon for 41 Freddie Mercuries IC and 1 minute of Superman

Mosey to the Amphitheater for Triple Checks

Round 1:

  • Flutter Kicks
  • Box Jumps
  • Run up the steps and back down

Round 2: (“Lazy” version)

  • PLTs
  • Incline Merkins

Rusty Cage – partner up and complete the following:

  • 3 rounds of 5 burp-ups while partner is in elbow plan
  • 3 rounds of 10 jerkins

Indigenous People run back to the flag…jail break near all the potholes

COT, Number-rama, Name-a-rama and YHC took us out


  • Marmaduke is collecting winter clothes.
  • Fudd is leaving..no really, he’s leaving…well, at least he is starting his new job in Denver on Monday.  We wish him well.  Show those F3Denver guys how we do it here.  See you next Saturday at Dogpile!
  • Good luck to the guys running Bear Creek tomorrow…TYA, Shakedown, Gomer, Circle K and others?


It was a beautiful morning and Dogpile is always a blast.  The PAX is large, energetic and full of mumblechatter (and full of some noxious 4th F this morning too).  We ran a lot and kept it moving form the launch this morning.  Way to push guys.

Welcome to 2 FNGs as well – FNG-Recall (Jason – a Toyota Technician and the latest New Market addition to the PAX. He even rucked a few miles before the beatdown…Respect!) and FNG-Jump Street (previously Brown Water) (Doah – an intern with VDOT who Shakedown brought out.  He is 22 and his spirit animal is a Kangaroo, he likes to climb trees…occassionally and he kind of looks like Johnny Depp or like he could be an undercover high school cop…ergo, Jump Street).  Welcome guys.  You killed it today.  We hope to see you back out soon and often.

Also, Vinny and YHC have conspired to challenge the PAX to bring back the STACHEs next year and have dubbed the first Saturday in December (consistent with its 12/11/1980 debut) Magnum PI day, so treat your lip follicles properly for growing in 11 months and get a hawaiian shirt – we will see you with staches and shirts on 12/7/19.  We may even make it a fundraiser while we humiliate ourselves (errr, I mean look freaking AWESOME!).

6 days, 6Qs in the books.  1 more on the trails tomorrow.  Thanks for indulging me all week and sorry to those of you have had some redundant workouts.  I’m not that creative.

A couple other guys (Vandalay and Dr. Tryhard) also had birthdays this week…HBD guys!

Have a great Saturday guys.

No More Gumbo For You…until Sunday Funday tomorrow.

  1. Great Q Gumbo! And Tclaps to you and Vinny for growing two of the most heinous staches I’ve ever seen. Further Tclaps to the name change for Jump Street….Brownwater was a crap name…no pun intended.

    I’ll miss you guys out in Denver….but not for too long. Like the Terminator says…..I’ll be back.

  2. Awesome Q and even better Stache Gumbo! Great week you’ve had man, strong work!

    Fudd safe travels, prayers for the family as you guys make the transition!

  3. What a fun morning! Good luck and safe travels, Fudd! Great job this week, Gumbo! Good job on the partner work, Swirly, Don Draper and Fudd. Lots of thigh action this morning. Everyone doubling back for Bone Thugs pretty much summarizes what F3 is all about. Can’t wait to start growing my stache out now for next years Magnum PI theme day. Have a great weekend all!

  4. Just an awesome day all around. F3RVA was fully represented today in that we had fun – i.e., Inaugural Magnum PI Day, we worked hard, ergo the beatdown, and we left no man behind – going back at the end to bring Bone Thug home was the epitome of who we are. Freaking loved it! To echo Gumbo, you have 12 months to find some 4″ seam khakis, Hawaiian shirt and boat shoes. It’s gonna be epic. Way to kick off your 40s G!

  5. Solid leadership today, Q, especially through the clowns yelping during the Infinity Squats. Way to keep the PAX together.

    Welcome Johnny Depp and Recall.

    The Stache…a fundraiser looking for a cause.

    Good luck, Fuddski. Knock em dead.

  6. Gumbo – Respect on the week of Q’s! Welcome Jump Street & Recall. Great partnering up with some new PAX during triple checks (lazy or not – just plain tough). Sippy Cup & Bone Thugs killed it! I hear through the New Market communication systems that Recall is purchasing a ruck sack and some weight! Way to jump in brother! Man I love the Saturday workouts!
