O’Fartsack at The Plank/Catapult East

Conditions– Mid 50s and calm winds- great weather for a beatdown. Somehow my boy, Crabs, came up with a new F3 name for me, O’Fartsack, after YHC took “vacation” from F3 during spring break. Shame on me 🙂 We all have had some fun with the new name, and I showed him my gratitude by …

7 of Diamonds

Three started with a pre-run (CC, FB, YHC) 1.75 – 3 miles good warm up that I would pay for later.  Sleep had been elusive the night before as sometimes it is for me with the excitement of a Q especially a first Q at this AO.  All part of leading and growing and no …

Conditions: Frigid, hovering right around 0 Celsius, though the 15mph wind that was in the forecast the night before was blessedly MIA. With 20 Qs under my belt, I felt I was overdue to lead a core focused beatdown, and what better place to do that than The Plank? I’d come up with what I …

Q sheet came out, and I had to get my Q for the year out of the way. Rolled up to the plank, and saw only Castaway waiting in the lot. Hoping we could at least make more than the usual 3 at the plank, I was glad to see Fargo show up, as he …
