Dawn on Strike

Saturday AO’s should be a little special.  Lots of guys are hitting trails and hills these recent days, getting in a little distance.  Others are taking a day with the fam now that summer break is over and school has, again, a grip on the kids.  Or maybe it’s just the fartsack that has a …

The Dice Roll At Dawn

Earlier in the week, @Fallout put out a call for a fill-in #DawnStrike Q. YHC was somehow scheduled to Q at 3 other AOs during the week, so what better way to wrap up the week than with a stop at the #FunnnerestAOEver*? Conditions: Low 40s, crisp The Thang: Mosey to the #Brickpile COP-on-the-hop: SSH …

WOW for 4/2 – 4/7

The P200 is squarely in the review mirror. Spring break and Easter vacation are behind us. The cold weather has (mostly) subsided. Any other excuses that YHC is missing.  If there are, kick them to the curb and get back into the habit of an F3 morning.  Wake up before most peoples day starts.  Hang …

Beta Leg Day

WOW October 23-28

The last week plus have been something, since the Cannonball run people have definitely been stepping up their Q game.  During a long run on Sunday, YHC was stewing over all the great recent F3 events and how much F3 has done for YHC personally.  F3 has given YHC’s life more meaning and purpose.  Plus, …

Dawnstrike #GasAttack

6 pax gathered Saturday morning and little did they know they would be weathering a storm of gaseous proportions from one very flatulent Jar Jar.  As if the workout wasn’t hard enough, the stench burned the nostrils of those around him.  Everyone made it out alive–thankfully.   The stench was so bad YHC doesn’t even …
