An all-star cast of characters emerged from early morning gloom. A couple of yogi’s, a few reading in their trucks, and the Fuddster coming in hot. Off we went to the small park for some warm ups and yoga taking the rest of the warm up down Westham. We did the Westham challenge down Club Vista: Large SUVs = 10 HTH; European Cars = 3 Burpees. All was working out well until we stumbled upon a cluster of Audis. By way of avoiding a newly placed fence, we made our way to the practice fields for Triple Check 1. Partner…

First Watch has always been one of my favorite spots in Richmond, so when SOJ Takeover was proposed, it was my first choice. Excellent dudes and always a good time with plenty of banter and 2nd F after a beat down.  Five men answered the 5a call this morning. Here’s what went down: Mosey to Parking Lot Warm up — Parking Lot Few laps around the parking lot  Circle up Side Straddle hop — 20x Dead Man Hang — C/L/R On your six, Leg out L/R Roscoe’s mom L/R Pull leg to chest L/R Thing 1 — 11s @ Far…

5 tremendously talented individuals showed up for the inaugural Westham open. I was told the 5-hole tourney would be on ESPN the Ocho but no cameras or spectators were around.

7 men of leisure strolled forth for the latest edition of The First Watch. Conditions were 70 and sunny, albeit with a very small amount of rain and a handful of wet spots. According to the Teen Aged Female Yale Student (YHC apologizes to any actual Teen Aged Girls reading this) griping about getting even a little bit of water on his whittle clothes, the following 100% dry exercises might have happened. Hutton is on the DL, but posted anyway. Walked Alone for the workout. Clearly, he’s not a Liverpool fan. Good choice. Liverpool FC can suck it. Yeah, Mr.…

Senor Frog led our 8 man crew in a run-heavy Bootcamp. Last Call complained even though he should have been stretched from Broga. We ran to Walgreens at the corner of Ridge and Forest and completed various Ab exercises then ran around the building. Some said it was 3 miles. There was also conversation about Saab’s love interest of the youth, Esther Williams, but Pucker and YHC couldn’t remember her name. Announcements – WestHo lunch at Firehouse Subs at Innsbrook on May 14th and noon. Prayer Requests – Ronnie’s puppy passed away. It’s always tough for those who love their…
