Revco’s Rampage

Six Pax showed up for a seasonably cool morning.  Conditions were nice for a long mosey. Instead of a winkie, YHC arrived with only his foam dodecahedron…which randomly generates exercises (written on each face) in quantities determined by each Pax’s birthday date.  As such this backblast will be almost exclusively in generalities and it is very …

Three years in…

YHC has been sporadic at best at posting for bootcamps of late, but here we are in early September, which means that an F3 anniversary is at hand. It was imperative that I sign up for the customary anniversary Q, and this was that day. Wanted to provide something special for the PAX, so it …

Fire vs. Water

21 pax (including 3 FNGs) enjoyed the wet and muggy conditions that Speedtrap had to offer this morning.  It was time for the monthly Speedtrap/Roost convergence and also time to switch things up a bit.  Taken from the F3 podcast was the idea to do Q vs Q workout.  Each Q would rotate 10 minute …

A little morning mosey

8 Pax posted in 38 degree conditions under clear skies.  Numbers were obviously low because they knew who was Qing.  🙂  Don’t be scared fella’s! Start with a prayer: Christ behind me, Christ before me, Christ under my feet, Christ beside me, Christ over me, let all around me be Christ.  With Christ in our …

We’re in the middle of March and it’s still freakin’ freezing …

Over The Hill

February 26, 1978 YHC came kicking and screaming into the world. Born in Columbia, raised in Chapin, a lifelong, red blooded, God-fearing, local southern-American. It’s been a great ride so far and YHC has truly been blessed by our Creator. The Gloom came calling for 12 PAX today and I could think of no better …

Deja Vu: Year #2

“They don’t make a year like they used to”. This is what YHC’s father says on occasion. I echo this sentiment about the last 2 years of getting better with the men of F3 Lake Murray. Time has certainly flown, yet I can’t imagine not continuing on the F3 journey with the PAX. So for …

Who’s the Q?

Scene 52 degrees and brisk, damp grass and a few small puddles.  The parking lot is lit by a single overhead light, but otherwise dark and gloomy.  The PAX slowly roll in, find their parking spots, and begin to circle up by the now-planted #ShovelFlag. Stirrups: “Who’s the Q?” Reload: [grinning] Reload: “I’ve got it …
