Some wine with that


YHC was ready to start the week this cool morning and touched base with a new F3 dad who wanted to bring his 20 year old son, ran into Labrat this weekend and he was in, Hash was coming with me and we had two more show up, flag planted and we are ready to roll.


We mosey to the newly paved and striped basketball courts next to the bus loop and circle up for 20 SSH, 10 DQ, 10 Helicopters, 20 LBC’s, 10 Scorpions and 20 merkins.


So YHC set up a new play list for the gang to enjoy this morning while we formed up in each corner, YHC was alone everyone else was paired up in the other corners which allowed some great mumblechatter! We had jump ropes in Corner 1(C1) this was the timer and one of the 2 PAX had to complete 25 jumps in a row. Then would rotate to Corner 2(C2) – this was hand release merkins. C3 – lunges and C4 – LBC’s. Once everyone rotated through each corner this was one set. For the following sets we increased the number of jumps in a row by 5 and we went up to 55! Have some Rocky Balboa’s in the house!

We then mosey to the tennis courts and do multiple exercises accoss the court, starting with bear crawls then crawl bear back, forward lunges then bernie saunders back and we did this with 2 and 3 courts. About that time our FNG spilled some merlot…he recovered and was back in the saddle for the final routine.

4 corners – we bro-coded with 10 merkins in corner 1, 20 LBC’s in corner 2, 30 squats in corner 2 and 4 SSH in corner 4.

Back to the flag for numberama and namerama. YHC took us out in prayer.


So we had 2 father son combos today and was special to welcome BoJangles to the F3 RVA fold! he is the 2.0 to Macho, who 1st posted on July 4th convergence with Helix! I was great to see Lab Rat back and he was super helpful in developing the BoJangles name and keeping the mumblechatter, healthy and exciting this morning. He has recovered from his first cancer treatment; however, they have noticed another lump in his throat. So we have a prayer request for him, a speedy recovery and to hopefully have good news from his future check ups.

It was an honor to lead this morning, have a great day and fantastic week.

See you in the gloom soon….Cheers…CB!
