Don’t Not Do Something (ie, Do Something) #DoubleNegative

Conditions TANK TOP WEATHER IS BACK!  66 degrees There’s something about putting on a slightly too tight tank top, possibly a ladies version, that just screams bad***ery.  Last night Wolverine was still battling sickness (get well Brother), so YHC usually defaults the Q here.  Which I love.  And which I had been stealing stuff like …

Conditions:  Mid 60’s, partly cloudy, slight breeze As YHC pulls into parking lot, he notices unfamiliar vehicle on scene. At 0500 and it’s still dark-thirty, wouldn’t be  prudent to approach.  I digress but, common sense prevailed. Grabbed the shovel flag, cones, Noxgear next; planted the flag, hit the lights, set the cones out on BB …

Let’s partner up for everything and share some Valentine’s Love…and chocolate

Conditions 44 degrees; chilly Last year I took the Q for #BombSquad on Valentine’s Day and came up with a hilariously romantic and brutal workout.  So, as soon as February rolled around on our calendar, I grabbed the Q again – but this year, #WaveRucker.  Thinking of ways to make this hard, yet fun, and …

Cardio Cone Zone and NASCAR come together… #Killthequit

Conditions: Low 60’s, fog, wet. As YHC pulled into the parking lot, some of the PAX were ruck-packing for an hour (0600), before we circled up around the shovel flag at 0700. So proud of these men who go the extra mile. 23 #HIM showed up, with 1 FNG. As we circled up and the …

The pre-rucks & pre-runs …

4 Outstanding men and their weights

Conditions: 40 degrees; we assembled in the parking deck. YHC offered to Q in an effort to give the AOQ (Wolverine) and oft QIC (One-Call) a break and just show up, throw around some weight, get a good sweat and enjoy not having to herd this rambunctious cadre of alpha males.  It would seem that planning …
