Columbia – Thunder

One Last Time…

To my M’s great dislike, YHC has become a huge fan of the music for the musical Hamilton over the last few years, so much so that when we traveled to New York this summer to see it for the first time she was amazed and maybe a little embarrassed that I was singing every …

Homage Paid at Thunder

12 PAX emerged from the #Fartsack this morning in search of a way to #GetBetter. Lingering in the Hand parking lot was YHC, who was quite excited about the occasion to Q at my home AO, the home of #TankTopThursday, Burpees and unbridled #MumbleChatter.  Once the proverbial whistle blew at 5:30 AM, the PAX got …

Hills & Rats at Thunder

15 PAX emerged from the #Fartsack on this beautiful April morning looking for a prime opportunity to #OwnTheGloom.

Adrian!?!?

Every now and again a special fella comes along.  For F3 Columbia and #Thunder that man is none other than Adrian.  Despite his recent bout with the flu and chronic pinky issues, the man instills a passion in the pax to strive for more – even when he’s not there (after calling in an #EpsteinsMother …

The Dirty 30

YHC turned 30 yesterday and it wasn’t sitting well. I decided to turn up the intensity on this find #tanktopthursday to help release the feelings. It worked, I’m good now. Weather: Hot and muggy (“weather” autocorrected to “death” which was appropriate given the 120% humidity these days) The thang… Mosey to courtyard SSH x 15 …

Dora the Expolora

13 PAX posted to Hammer for a little fun.  YHC traded off Q responsibilities with McNugget at BATTLE so it was appropriate we bring a little heat to the boys at HAMMER.  Mainly because they expect it and can handle it. Conditions:  74 and muggy! Head to the block pile and 1/2 of the PAX …
