One of the great things about First Watch has been the revolving door of PAX. Apart from the constant of Kubota and perhaps YHC, the numbers are consistently between 3 and 7 PAX, but seemingly never the same 3 to 7. Several post enough to be called regulars, but there always seems to be a couple of PAX that are new or have only been out once or twice. Awesome to have Swirly out for his 2nd visit to the earliest and perhaps now darkest AO in RVA today. Always fun when 2 lunatics in dark clothing highkneeing down the street can scare the heck out of a dog walker. Welcome back to Mrs. Wojo. Married life seems to have been good so far, except for that 1% of control he’s now lost.
CORNHOLE! Anyone have some boards they can lend?
Good work, fellas. YHC arrived at WDog today to find darkness and an empty parking space normally occupied by Big Blue. YHC suspected BB could be found at First Watch.
YHC also notes the Swirly victory lap past WDog at 6:10 a.m.
UPC is always watching.
Great to get back to First Watch after too long of a hiatus. Great Q, EF Hutton!
Lotta topography for the 2.3 miles my Garmin clocked. SYITG
Always good to make a BB without posting. Atilla’s 10 min Burpees took a toll on my back. Plus I thought Upchuck might go to FW and we can’t be at the same AO.
We can never be too careful, HD.
In the newly published “1001 Ways to Make F3 More Complicated,” on page 567, it specifically says that no PAX member who was initiated into F3 between the 6th and 9th of June of any year may appear at the same AO as the person who sponsored them without the express written permission of the Q who oversaw said Beat Down.
This called out an oversight on my part. While I saw and spoke with Bleeder at the Bone Thugs 10k (Friday, August 21, 2020, 11:06 GMT), due to the City of Richmond’s COVID-19 Social Distancing Regulations, I did not provide, either for wet or electronic signature, the required Waiver of Regulations (sec. 22.214.171.124 of the NC Code of F3 Conduct, 2011, and as amended 2018). (Note: Had said event occurred in Henrico County, we could have moved close enough to share a document, provided that both parties had signed a Consent of Closeness Waiver. Unfortunately, said second waiver had not, as of the time of publication, been published.)
Admittedly, it’s a highly technical F3 rule, but we can be thankful that, unlike in baseball, the rule is written for all PAX, even those newer to F3, to read.
We can all sleep soundly tonight knowing that, as F3RVA continues to operate exclusively out of doors (pre-and-during COVID), there remain no walls on which to post dumb rules. Therefore, we cannot have any dumb rules (see “Freed to Lead,” Vol. 1).
Great Q EF Hutton. I got nervous when I saw Corporate at First Watch. Swirly rarely sways from his routine.
Ha, anyone else not surprised UpChuck can write a comment longer than the BackBlast?
I am now happy to report that as of this morning at 6:15am, Corporate has released me from my probation period for missing First Watch yesterday.
