Always 70 and Sunny

Working title


A baker’s dozen emerged from the gloom near Dogwood Dell on this crisp 70 and Sunny February morning for an opportunity to improve themselves. This is how it went.

Mosey to Reservoir for COP – All IC – SSH, Helicopters, DQ, Imperial Walkers, Copperhead Squats, Merkins, LBCs, APDs

Mosey to the Boathouse on Boat Lake for Dirty Mac Deuce – four sets of three exercises OYO – 12 double count reps/four count cadence/whatever…24 of them. After a set, run around the triangle (about .25 mile distance). Set 1 – Merkins, LBCs, Lunges; Set 2 – HR Merkins, Reverse LBCs, Jump Squats; Set 3 – Diamond Merkins, Flutter kicks, Backward lunges; Set 4 – Wide Arm Merkins, American Hammers, Monkey Humpers

Mosey back in the direction of the field at the Carillon – starting about half way, do one Burpee at each light post

At the field, 11’s across the short direction – Merkins and lunge across, American Hammers and Bernie Sanders back

Mosey to the flag for 5 minutes of Mary IC – 20 x Freddie Mercury’s, 20 x American Hammers, 20 x LBCs, 10 x Heels to heaven


Prayers – MMOB (see below) requested thoughts and prayers for Ellie in Charlotte recovering from an accident. Remember there are always folks out there in need of some good thoughts even if you don’t know exactly what they’re going through.

Oyster gave an update on Breaking Bread – it’s back to in-person, coming inside and serving. F3 Richmond has been covering dinner the last week of the month for a number of years. Let’s keep it up! Look for open slots on the Q Sheet.

Pigskin’s church held a blood drive today. I didn’t get the backblast out in time to be ahead of it. Blood donations are always needed. Look for an opportunity.

We had a special visit from the Mothership Saturday – Mighty Mighty Owl Bait was in RVA for a rugby tournament and stopped in to DogPile to get a beat down on the road. It was a great opportunity to show off one of the most beautiful locations in Richmond and certainly one of F3 RVA’s AO jewels. Really glad to have you join us and get to know you a bit. YHC was proud to show off just a small part of what DogPile has to offer as an AO.

I once again appreciate the opportunity to come out and lead this group which has changed my life for the better in so many ways. SYITG
