In Memoriam, March Madness

No more than 10 equidistantly spaced normalcy seekers gathered under the waning crescent for this year’s iteration of march madness. Brief mosey over to the center of the blacktop for something that went like this:

20x – Staring at Saab not doing SSHs
10x – Helicopters
20x – Not so Imperial Walkers
10+x – Don’t Stare at the Shorts Copperhead Squats
20x – American Hammers
10x – Merkins, good ole American style

The Thang
Stay in our circle for an exercise YHC is calling, “10 Minutes of Hardywood Startup Ideas.” Pick a number from 1-10 and repeat that many burpees every minute for 10 minutes.

Short jaunt over to the tennis courts for multiple iterations of line drills using the space between the courts as the lines. First iteration running and 10x squats and merkins at the endlines. Second iteration karaoke facing the school and 10x single count lunges and WWIIs. Third iteration backwards run with mountain climbers and diamond merkins, 10x. Al Gores and plank series in between sets.

Shimmy over to the northwest corner for an exercise YHC is calling, “10 minutes of inappropriate Hardywood jokes.” Circle up, passing dealers choice ab exercises clockwise around the circle. Ab work for 50 seconds then next person calls an exercise out and start again after 10 seconds.

Back to the VSF for numbers, max {1…10}, names, and YHC took us out.

– Prayers out to DTH as he is half way around the world helping those that need it in these trying times.
– Give blood if you can
– Support small and local businesses

Splinter out.



  1. Swirly (F3 Corporate) on

    I missed the March Madness Q Splinter I ain’t gonna lie – but well done this morning buddy.
    Great job guys – see y’all in the gloom..

  2. Good job, Splinter, Great being back out at Mary for a change. Hardywood was on fire this morning, verbally.

  3. Great Q Splinter! Way to bring it with the 10 minutes of burpees. At last count Swirly had 879.

    Thanks for lending an ear and allowing a space to keep things light. It’s been one of my favorite things about F3. Be sure to give yourselves a screen break from news and social media.

    Big cheers to you all!
