Columbia – Battle

Battle Flu

Battle flu is real. YHC felt a little under the weather Friday night and Saturday morning. After posting at Battle, YHC spent the rest of the day trying to figure out whether YHC was sick or just suffering from Battle Flu. General aches, pains, and exhaustion – classic symptoms of Battle Flu. YHC is happy …

Organized Chaos

6 PAX, including 1 2.0, emerged from the Fartsack this morning, looking for a way to #GetBetter, the Battle Way. The Battle Way is not for every man, but only for the man willing to push himself from comfort to discomfort.  Waiting in the parking lot this morning was Fountainhead and YHC; two retired Nantans …

BATTLE Dealer’s Choice usually turns out bad and this was no different.

Up until about 0658, it was 2 of us.  Eldrick and YHC for Dealer’s Choice by ourselves.  I don’t like the outcome.  Get 911 on standby.  Thankfully or not, however you look at it, 5 more showed up with a minute to spare.  It’s BATTLE and it’s Dealer’s Choice, let’s get it on! Conditions:  58 …

On like Donkey Kong

Battle is an experience not matched at any other AO.  It had been a while since YHC had been attended, and 5 minutes into the workout YHC realized how much he’d missed.  Battle guys are not normal human beings.  They’re a little nuts (as is YHC) and crazy loves company.  This past weekend 13 crazies …

Weekly Battle Beatdown

YHC waited so long to get to the backblast to try and keep from reliving this workout.  It was hot, humid, exhausting, miserable, and every other adjective that a normal Battle workout is.  Here is what happened. Minion Mosey to the Battle Loop Partner Dora at the Battle Loop: While Partner 1 runs the loop, …

Battle on Tour

Another Saturday at #Battle where limits are pushed, sanity is questioned and the #DRP is served in a manner akin to drinking water from a fire hydrant. This week featured Battle on location at Finlay Park in honor of the anniversary of The Mission. With new locales to explore, the question had to be asked …

Solo Battle Q

YHC has missed Battle for the last few weeks based on gaining more miles on the weekends. Rotation was up for a Co-Q with Misfire, but he has a back injury that kept him grounded. There is a reason Battle uses a CO-Q approach, and the Pax demand all out intensity for the full hour. …

This week featured a return home of one of F3 Columbia’s finest, morning fog, questionable decisions and an #IrishGoodbye. With both YHC and his co-Q, who each tend …
