DTH&DD 1 Yr Painniversary


A whopping 22 veteran gloom warriors posted to NoToll this morning to celebrate the 1 year F3-versary of Dr TryHard and Don Draper. Last year, DTH & DD showed up uninvited to Ollivander’s VQ at NoToll without any idea of what to expect…of course SOJ both received them warmly a provided a thorough beatdown rebirth. Now a year later, with gratitude swelling in our hearts, DTH & DD co-Q’d the following:



  • To celebrate 1 year of DTH & DD partnering up, Partner Carry to the parking lot, switching wherever needed

Circle up for COP #1 in Parking Lot:

  • DTH & DD provide welcome, F3 disclaimer, and co-Q the following:
  • SSH x20 IC
  • Don Drapers x10 IC —> Like Don Quixotes, but balance on one foot while touching it with opposite hand and kick up the other leg behind, then switch for 4ct …yes, awkward like Draper
  • Plank Jacks x20 IC
  • DTH’s x10 IC —> Like DR.W’s, but 8-ct order is starting with hallelujah Dolly then Toe Touch (full sit up to reach & touch toes) then back on six for Heels to Heaven …yes, complex like DTH


  • Race around the parking lot, completing x10 merkins at each corner, lining up at the end in finishing order. Number off 1,2,1,2,etc. to divide the PAX evenly. 

Mosey to Field #1 for COP #2:

  • Teams Compete in DORA 1-2-3 
  • Each team subdivides in half, half to start the usual exercises, while the other half TeamCarries across the field and back (TeamCarry = line up with arms over shoulders, every other man holding up their own weight with legs off the ground) …Note, total fail to comply 
  • Exercises called in cadence: 100 merkins, 200 Squats, 300 LBC’s
  • The winning Team Draper enjoyed APD’s while Team DTH completed x10 Burpees

Mosey back to parking lot for COP #3:

  • Capture the Flag
  • Two teams plank in lines facing one another
  • Caterpillar to ShovelFlag (last man box jumps over planking teammates to the front, repeato until flag reached)
  • Teams TIED …or at least darn close

Mosey back over to Field for COP #4:

  • Crab Soccer x10min
  • Team Draper pulled out the win 4-3

Mosey back to Courts for COP #5:

  • Team Suicides
  • Plank on baseline cheering on teammates as they take turns sprinting the suicides

Circle up for Mary:

  • DTH led a Flutter Kick Circuit
  • Draper led Merkins – Diamond then regular


  • Counterama #22
  • Namerama
  • Announcerama (see Comments)
  • YHC took us out in Prayer

Don Draper’s Naked Moleskin: 

The mumblechatter was heavy, starting with partner carries and continuing in stride through the Dora. But teamwork is teamwork and as the competition began a solemn posture took to the air. Team #2 performed in excellence but Team #1 achieved ultimate victory by implementing a strategy of captains choice counting, creative use of space and overall superior skillmanship. 

DTH & YHC are tremendously thankful for the brotherhood and accountability this group has provided over the past year. Our attempt of a teamwork-heavy Q was to emphasize the camaraderie we have and the competition each of us brings every morning. It’s a you-vs-you workout but we continually see everyone pushing each other to be better – both in the gloom and in our daily lives. 

Let’s reach out to those who have been away for a bit and headlock them back to a 70 & sunny workout. And for the consistent blokes who keep pushing daily – thank you for the daily challenge!

  1. Congrats on the 1 yr, fellas! You both have provided a great spirit to the group, one more vocal than the other, but both equally important and enjoyable. Glad I could be there this morning. Way to work, men!

  2. Well done fellas. And congrats on the 1 year Q! It was tough. I enjoyed the team theme! Look forward to more partner Q’s from you two.

  3. Great job boys. Appreciate the friendship of you both.
