Back in the saddle


16 of Virginia’s finest sons (some native, others transplanted) posted in the pleasant pre-dawn gloom to participate in something that F3RVA has not experienced for at least 4 years…..a Fudd Q. Here’s how it went down:

The Thang:

Circle up in the grass of the horseshoe for COP

SSH x 30

Don Quixote x 10

Dead man hang

Mosey to Trinity UMC for Triple Check:

Rd 1: P1 wall sit, P2 plank, P3 run a lap around the church

Rd2: P1 bttw, P2 flutter kicks, P3 run a lap

Rd 3: P1 burpees, P2 crabcakes, P3 run a lap

Kubota gave us a 20 count, then mosey to the front of the church for the Tunnel of Love. Started at the main church doors and tunneled our way towards Rock Creek until we got to the 2nd hydrant. Splinter gave us a 10 count and we then moseyed back to the VSF for 8 or so minutes of Mary:

Alternating V ups x 20

Flutter kicks x 30

LBC’s x 20

Imperial Walkers x 20

Plank for 2 minutes

Merkins x 15

Numberama, Namerama, YHC took us out


It was great to be back in the saddle, Q’ing a workout in RVA once again. Oyster pointed out that YHC’s watch is slow…..maybe that’s a legacy from Colorado mountain time. Noted Oyster…..we’ll get started on time at my next Q! It was interesting to see how the intervals between dudes in the tunnel of love magically got significantly wider once the ending point was revealed as the second fire hydrant. Also noted for the future.

YHC appreciates the showing today for his 1st RVA Q in a long time. It was great seeing some of the same faces that have accompanied my F3 journey through the years. YHC started with F3RVA in early Oct. of 2014 and it’s pretty incredible to think about how far this group has come in the last (almost) 8 years. Countless lives have been changed and the ripple effects from the men we have affected for the better continue to extend out and touch places and people that we may never see or know. I love the fact that we change men’s lives for the better. When you change one man’s outlook…..when you change his attitude, his countenance, his confidence……. you change the lives of everyone he loves, everyone he interacts with, everyone that shares even a small portion of his time on this earth. I’m addicted to the belief that we change the world a little bit every day…… in ways that many of us will never truly know.

Thanks for coming out to support my return fellas. Stay on the lookout for men that could benefit from this life. Have the courage to ask them to join us.

And never stop chasing the wabbit!

Fudd out
