22 (!!!) PAX including 2.0s braved the soggy fields this morning for a kid friendly work out today. Fun was a had and a little exercise along the way. Here is how it happened: 7am hit and we peeled the 2.0s from the playground, moseyed to the basketball court for: COP/Warmerama Short disclaimer and welcome to F3. Three 2.0 FNGs today. Reminded all the 2.0s they have some pretty awesome dads who try to better themselves! 10 reps of the following were completed: Imperial Walkers, Jazzercise, Seal Claps, Cherry Pickers, Crab Cakes, Boat/Canoe, and Dancing Bear. THANG #1 (Race Time)…

An extraordinary THIRTY gloom warriors posted this morning to our SOJ inaugural PuppyPile at NoToll, with a few brave men outnumbered at least 3-1 by a veritable herd of adventure-energized 2.0’s!

11 Warriors and 18 of RVA’s finest 2.0’s (including 5 FNG’s) posted for a cooler than expected Puppypile adventure. With everyone’s Garmin watches hitting 7:05am, we headed off into the unknown.

A hearty 26 1.0s and 2.0s descended on Dogwood Dell for the WTBS SuperStation 7:05 start of Puppy Pile on the first Saturday in July, which today happened to be the last Saturday in June. Due to a team building email from Marv for his Little League All Star team, we had a good amount of FNGs that are preparing to take on the likes of Tuckahoe, Huguenot, Mechanicsville and more starting next week. The Thang: Mosey to the big circle west of the Carrilion. Our good friends at the City of Richmond haven’t mowed that grass for awhile…kind of…

Eight early risers (including one double dipper) and their dads rolled into Puppy Pile with visions of post workout bacon. But first they had to earn it. Shark Bait Q: Mosey to the amphitheater stage for COP: With only ten days of school left for RCPS students, all exercises were done at 10. Helicopters / DQs / LBCs / Flutter Kicks / SSHs. Triple Check: 2.0 does donkey kicks on stage while dads run to the top of the stairs and back. 2.0s run up the number of steps that correspond with their age while dads do donkey kicks. Husky…

Wait… I did! At least 6 stellar dad’s woke their kids up early for the first Puppy Pile of ’19. It went something like this: Mosey to the far circle for COP. The Q left behind his 2.0 for a while. Survival of the fittest! COPCOP stuff. Stretching and warming up the muscles and heart The ThangSkip-to-my-lou over to the field for multiple iterations of partner carries. Twice the length of the field. Slow saunter over to the west side of the Carillon for touch a tree. Burpees, Merkins, SSH, LBCs. Many exercises were had. Wait, was it 1 tree,…

PuppyPile is cancelled for tomorrow.  The weather is supposed to be in the low 20’s and I don’t think that’s great for young kids.  It’s super disappointing because my 2.0 (Churchill) has been talking about it all week and even practicing some of the exercises (PLT’s and Wheelbarrows are his favorites). I’ll keep an eye on the weather and will get something on the books soon when it gets more tenable.  See ya in the (cold) gloom. Ollivander

A group of 5–2 dads and 3 kids gathered for the last puppy pile of the season.  It went something like this: Marv leading.

A hearty 8 1.0’s and 2.0’s made it out to October’s rendition of PuppyPile. After an all night Nor’easter and a legit threat of rain in the area, the normally robust group of 2.0s and 1.0s shrunk a little bit…mainly because most of us exercised the sports adage–KYP. Know Your Personnel. You see, I know my personnel (AKA, my 2.0s) and rain and low 50s wasn’t going to make anyone happy. For us, “Push Yourself, don’t hurt yourself” is a challenge, a badge of honor, a motto to get us to do one more Merican or Burpee. For 2.0s, well,…
