Completely Stupid and Udderly Pointless

BRR 2021 21 men got out of bed on Friday morning September 10, 2021 and decided that “Next Year” was “Today”. It was the 20th running of the BRR and the teams were ready to go. We all loaded into the vans and headed to Grayson Highlands park in southwestern Virginia. Weather in Grayson Highlands park was perfect at the start, 52 degrees and sunny. The 8-person team was the first to launch at 8:15 with Swirly as the leadoff batter. A half hour later, at 8:45, hitchhiker was the leadoff man for the 11-person team. 33 hours later we were at the Highland Brewing Company…

10 gathered. 8 ran. 1 cooked. 1 rubbed his heal. Temps were sunny (for sure) and 70 (in all fairness, YHC didn’t check). According to the little fuzzy caterpillars all over the roads, this is what happened, more or less: Gather at Casa de Vinny & Co on Wendover. Run west and south, before returning north and east. Turn left, right, left, and left again. Find a lake. Circumnavigate that lake. Turn right and go to the railroad tracks. Do not cross the tracks. For that matter, never, ever cross Buford. Return up a big hill, take the trail to…

Gents, it has become tradition at the annual inaugural F3 RVA retreat to have a friendly little Cornhole competition. Somehow YHC has twice snatched defeat from the jaws of victory along with everyone else not sporting a fuzzy caterpillar. Find a partner and start training, this year the Stacheholes go down. The rules are simple, throw the bag into the hole. Tournament is double elimination and there’s a mighty fine prize on the line. Highly recommended that you and your partner represent different nanoregions. Retreat is September 25th, tournament will start mid-afternoon.

Two weeks out to the BRR. Still time to come join the fun if you want. For those looking for a free trip away with the boys, we could use one more driver. We leave on Thursday at around noon and return sunday morning. If you would like to run, we currently have two teams, one of 8 and one of 10 runners. We could fit you in if you had the desire. One observation from YHC with a little perspective of being slightly older than the average F3 guy. When you are young, there is always next year to…

I am trying to track down a guy whose F3 name is “Clown Cars” — possible last name is “Tedesco.” He participated in the GrowRuck a few years ago. Any leads would be appreciated — especially a hospital name and mobile number. Thanks! F3 Johnsonville (flbiggs@gmail.com)

8 HIM showed up for an epic 80s Training Montage at NoToll. The guy walking his dog and the elderly gentleman said this is how it went down : Warmarama : 20 SSH IC 10 Don Q’s IC 10 Russian Soldiers IC 10 Imperial Walkers IC 10 Cherry Pickers IC THE THANG : On the basketball court, all PAX form a circle with the boom box blaring 80s music next to us. One exercise is done for the entire duration of each song. Here’s the list : Burpees – done to the sound of “Private Idaho” by B52’s (from the…

This is a story of long ago (Sunday), of a PAX who was pushed by his brothers to be better. We set out to do 13.1 miles. We ended with 14 miles. Don Draper set the route. Orange Crush brought snacks for the road. Tobit and Rosetta made it look easy. (Rosetta was doing some Bernie up a hill at mile 12!). Draper also kept the PAX hydrated. We set a goal and achieved it. NMM This was awesome. YHC had never ran more than a 5k before joining the wonderful group of dudes that is F3RVA. Keep pushing. You…

22 Strong turned up to put in some laps on beautiful friday morning. Cameos from Mr. Roper, Lab Rat, and one other biker(?). The Thang: Run and bike loops available, terrain was trails or road. All modes were used. NMM: One loop, 6 loops, it doesn’t matter. Getting out there and challenging yourself is what matters. YHC loves (and hates) watching the end of marathons. Each finisher has a story and a journey that they went on. Each is unique, each has some struggle or obstacle to overcome, and each is rewarded with the ultimate prize of stepping over the…
