Misspelled B.O.M.B.S

YHC pulled into Folsom about 15 minutes early to find the parking lot empty. Not sure if the Wednesday Run Ruck  was going to keep a few HIMS from posting this morning.  By the time YHC got parked the others started rolling in one by one. All total 9 HIMS showed in the gloom for a beatdown.

YHC was told the night before on the Folsom chat that there were 2 strong FNG’s that showed this week and that YHC should give them a beatdown that they won’t forget. (thanks Montross) 5:30 is here time to breakup the mumble chatter.


Moroccan Nightclubs till everone gets in the circle ,

10 Burpees OYO        Way to push AT

SSH x1


Mosey to the flag, say the pledge and 22 Merkins for the vets.  Mosey again to Sparky’s Lot for Wolverine Burpee/Long Jumps to the end. Mosey, sometime during the mosey  YHC overheard Pastor Clever say something about he was told to park at the tennis courts and he thought that we would be working out on the courts. Who was YHC to decline a new PAX the joy of what tennis courts really should be used for?

YHC called for some B.O.M.B.S. As the exercises were called out YHC was also called out by the spelling nazi (Huckleberry) and was asked how YHC spelled B.O.M.B.S with those exercises. Oh well I’m the Q I can spell it how I like! Time for some B.B.M.S.L

Partner up, YHC was odd man out so I did my sets with Montross and Pastor Clever.

50 Burpees

100 Big Boys

150 Merkins

200 Squats

250 LBCs   Just for you Huck

The PAX went to work and finished these with 3 minutes to go on the clock. Mosey back to start.

Prayer Request: AT’s mother in law, Roadie’s niece, Sparky’s M with end of school year stuff, YHC’s father in law, each other and our 2.0’s.

Announcements: Warrior Dash, Memorial Day Murph and 5K,  2.0 friendly workout 5-19-18, 07:00-08:00 at Folsom with something planned for the ones without 2.0s. Bring the 2.0 and have a great time of 1st and 2nd F.

BOM: YHC takes us out.

Moleskin:  Strong work from everyone today. YHC is really glad he had the Q today, didn’t really want to get out of the fartsack, but the PAX make it worth it and give back tenfold . It’s funny how  you think you are giving to the PAX but YHC is really getting the blessing from it.  Thank’s for the push Pastor Clever, only your second time posting and you are pushing hard. Gravity is getting better and better.  Volt is consistently there, Huck, Roadie posting 2 adays and 6 days a week, Medicine Woman doing EC and running with his 2.0 . Great to see every HIM at Folsom pushing hard.

If you haven’t had a chance to get out to Folsom come on out and get your beatdown and coffeerama Saturday 06:30-07:30. Montross with the Q.

It was a blessing and honor to lead today.


2.0 Friendly day at Folsom PreBlast

  1. About a month ago we had an idea to do a 2.0 friendly WO at Folsom! We will be doing this once a month through the summer, starting Saturday May 19th! I know personally that my boys love to come to a workout any chance they get! I love for them to be around my fellow f3 brothers, HIMs! Its good for them to be around good men, who work hard, love their wives and children and are there for one another at the drop of a hat! All of these are things that we see less and less of in our community! So, on May the 19 get up, bring your 2.0s and head to Folsom! If you dont have any 2.0s, we would still love for you to come! You can either help out with the Q, or there will be someone leading a running group at the same time!

Date- May 19th

Time- 7:00 am- 8:00 am

Afterward- breakfast at the Country Kitchen!

Contact me if you are interested in helping Q that morning, i would like to get the pax involved!

Went for a Hefty run!

6 men came out for the Pub Run.

The Thang:

We ran 5 miles, some ran less but pushed the rock, and some had a ruck pack on. JK2 and Gastone arrived early for extra credit but did not see each other until start time.

The Moleskin:

I changed the route today because I can which caused Diva and Tooltime to run with myself and Stroganoff because they would have gotten lost. It was a nice fellowship pace until they figured out how to get back.

Prayers for Stroganoff’s son who is figuring things out, JK2’s Father, Def Leopard and his travels, and some more but I can remember everything.

Thanks for the opportunity to Q Monk, we will see you soon,

Gastone Out!
