5 Strong arrived in the muggy gloom, mostly unaware of what we were celebrating. 5:30 am and we were off, with a 10 burpee delay near the gate on our initial mosey. More on that later.Warm up, all IC: SSH x 40 (Flange to YHC: Can I tell them now? YHC: Nah, they will figure it out.), Helicopter x 10, DQ x 10, LBC x 40, HRM x 20.10 burpees OYOMosey to the pavilion in the center of the soccer fields to mark the 19th anniversary of YHC’s 21st birthday with a Super 21:1 x Merkin, 1 x WW2, 1…

17 arrived for YHC’s favorite run that forces repeated climbs out of the U of R lake basin via designated roads (aka fingers). Some stuck with a few fingers, some went for the whole fist, and some took a finger that was in the entirely wrong place. Either way, it was a tough run and everyone performed their best.

5 fellas ready to beat the heat gathered at Linwood Holton School for YHC’s return to The Punisher after a 2 year hiatus. It’s at an am version of The Punisher YHC made his F3 AO debut following a year so stint (and F3 intro) in the Buckeye State . YHC’s first bout with The Punisher featured a PAX of 5 (shouts to Splinter on the Q, Honeydo, Offshore, Flipper and YHC to round out) so it felt appropriate to share that same number this evening. 6pm….. Let’s Mosey. COP Mosey over to the Basketball court for the F3 Welcome,…

A PAX of 3 assembled at BWES for a River Run beatdown that went something like this THANG: River Run OG in reverse so we could catch the sunrise as the PAX descended into Tarrington. Bullseye met us on his bike shortly after the Twin Team ascent. Corned Beef measured 4.25 miles total. YHC thinks it felt like more. Lots of topography. Naked Moleskin Cheers to Slumlord for hitting up Bullseye and YHC Sunday evening to see who was running. YHC surely would have fartsacked otherwise…and then our Mechanicsville visitor would have been on his own. Cheers to Corned Beef…

A solid dozen posted for Saturday’s GridIron including one FNG. As usual, there was some grief-giving and breeze-shooting just before the 7:00 hour. We started on time per my satellite-supported armband and began with each in attendance picking a lateral parking lot line which we used for 5 minutes of jogging forward and pedaling back. Regathered in a circle for a warm-up with Side Straddle Hops, Imperial Walkers, Russian Soldiers, Don Quixotes, Hello Dollys, Susan Somers(es), and Arm Circles. Stroll to the edge of the parking lot facing down a short hill to the tree line for mobile Elevens. Jog…

6 Davillians arrived at Atlee HS this morning for another Monday Runday Ruckers – Did their thing for 3ish miles Route – The PAX headed out together for a Kings Charter Loop. Trout and Opus stayed on KC drive, turn around about halfway for 4.6 miles. Sludge and YHC turned onto Stephens Manor to get a hill loop in and finished with 5.1 miles Pretty quiet morning except for some sounds coming from the woods behind football field. The PAX couldn’t decide if it was music or some loud dogs. SPIT ON THAT!!

34 warriors, including a FNG and two 2.0s fought away the fart sack heavy humid Saturday morning. 6 days in a row of Qs made YHC dive deep into the rotation rotation, but one of the best AOs in RVA always brings an arsenal of run friendly and ground and pound options to maximize an hour in the gloom. Mumble chatter up to 6:00, Let’s Mosey. COP Mosey to the Amphitheater, and work your way down to the stage. 2 Merkin buy-in at each step along the way (36) Welcome to DogPile, F3 Mission, F3 Disclaimer, Exercises: 20 SSH 10…

In the 1 year and 2 months that YHC has been posting with F3, today was the first visit to Sunday Funday.  As YHC was coming across the Nickel Bridge at 6:55, Saab was spotted running across the bridge in the other direction.  YHC thought he had missed the one and only guy that showed up.  Not to be discouraged, YHC continued on to the parking lot only to see no other familiar vehicles, donning the F3 logo.  Again, to not be discouraged, YHC decided a run was still in the making.  As YHC got out of the truck, an unfamiliar face emerged…
