Go That Way, Really Fast

This weekend’s Cusackathon was such a hit that one of the #DawnStrike regulars decided to get some more and visit the Shed for the very first time (despite living 5 whole blocks away). YHC changed the pace a bit but Mr. Cusack still made an appearance.

Jailbreak to COT

COT, BOM by Pipeline


  • This workout was inspired partly by Holy Poker and his heart rate management plan. Keep the heart rate slightly elevated 80-90% of the time, and rev it up the other 10-20%. That 10-20% was a whole lot of sprinting. Everyone kept up. Well done.
  • #Kotters to Crab Daddy, who came out to visit and thank the pax for their support following his accident and surgery. Get healed up brother and we’ll be waiting for your first post back.
  • #TClaps to Big Time who finally decided to post at the Shed (technically this was his second visit since he helped out at the 1-year convergence). Don’t be a stranger. Post here and get 15 minutes extra sleep.


  • Woodlands 5K & Play on 3/25. Come out and represent for your neighborhood. Many #SadClowns will be in attendance.
  • Get in the Pink 5K/10K, 5/13, Schweddy’s M on the Q. There will probably be an F3 discount. Stay tuned.
  • Post on Saturday to Brickpile or Battle (good), The Mission (better) or Dawn Strike (best).
  • Reach out to somebody that you know hasn’t posted in awhile and get him back here. He needs it.
