Not In My House

The August dawn broke over 28 faithful Columbia men as Termite began his virgin Q. He apparently believes the bricks at — ummm — the Brickpile don’t get enough attention. His first instruction was “grab two bricks and follow me.” Most of the exercises below were done with bricks in hand.

  • This was a crowd pleaser. Well done, Termite, on your first — and definitely not last — Q. I’m not sure of the number of reps so let’s just agree on “a whole freaking lot.”
  • Seeker: “Termite is living up to his nickname.” Kim Jung: “I wouldn’t want him in my kitchen either.”
  • Dredd is coming on Saturday with Crotch Rocket and Sleuth. Be at Dreher if you can.
  • Deadline for AmFibious 5K is 8/17.
  • After a “who’s the Q” snafu yesterday/this morning, Robber will be taking over the scheduling duties at The Brickpile. After 9 months, YHC completely supports this move. Thank you for offering, Robber!
