What’s in a name?

17 of The Gashouse’s finest and YHC showed to Midoriyama for some evening gloom.  The Twitter has something a while back that seemed interested and I decided to give it a try. 

Warmup – SSH x 3IC

Let’s mosey.  Head fake and back to the turd shack.

I had a list of exercises where every letter had an exercise that started with the corresponding letter.

The Pax would then spell their full legal name and their F3 name – while taking a lap after each name. This was met with much mumble chatter.

Once complete we moved to the official F3 deck.

Slow mosey back to the start for Mary.

Pledge, 22 for the vets.


Announcements: Q source, there may or not be a 2nd F event in Belmont every Friday.

Prayer requests: Easy Rider’s son, others.

BOM: YHC closed in prayer.

NMM: Blart also spoke about Tool Time and his upcoming mission trip.  What a wonderful opportunity he has to further the Kingdom of Christ. I know that he is known around here as the king of the mumble chatter, but he is also a remarkable human being.  He’s there for everyone, no matter how fast or slow, or whatever the difference may be.  I hope God blesses his trip as much as he has blessed the lives of so many in this region.  It’s an honor to call him a friend and brother.

Going Old School

Nineteen dudes showed this morning at Folsom. When Folsom first started a Saturday workout, the attendance was rather pitiful. It was the same guys every week. Taking old school a little, I decided to seek out the other men that were consistent at the time. Four Qs. 06:30 hits and we start with a disclaimer.

In the end Allen Tate, now know as Elizabeth Warren, decided to show up.

Warmup: 5 SSH IC

Mosey down to the lower turd shack.

Australian Mountain climbers x 30IC, 20 Hip slappers OYO, 20 Australian mountain climbers and LBC x 105 IC. 105 is a lot.

Up the stairs stopping on each step for 5 calf raises.

Sparky takes over. In the long parking lot, bear crawl to each second line and do 5 burpees. This took his entire 15 minutes.

Gumby takes over. In the shelter, complete dips, derkins, lbcs and step ups all x 15 and then run a lap. Repeat as many times as possible for 15 minutes.

Medicine Woman takes over and we are now at the tennis courts. Burpee suicides for 15 minutes.




Announcements: P200 needs two drivers, Q source launch tomorrow.

Prayer requests: Montross’ aunt, each other

BOM – YHC took us out.



There was some pain

Seven today for the most recent version of THE Pain Lab. After Linus lead us all in the warmup: we headed to our corner of the parking lot. Partner up. Dora 1,2,3… 4 and 5.

100 squats / 200 merkins / 300 calf raises / 400 flutter kicks and 500 lbcs. Each partner did half of the above exercises each.

Route 66 Partner 1 does bear crawls and merkins while Partner 2 does crab walks and WW1. Switch

11s with dips and derkins. Omaha because, you know, if you can’t do it don’t Q it.

Circle up for PAX choice. Those selected were Alphabet, Imperial Walkers, Low slow squats, deconstructed burpees, overhead claps and two others that I can’t remember.

Rudolph leads us in 400 lbcs IC waiting on the boot campers.


Announcements and Prayer requests: Linus took notes.

BOM: Linus closed us in prayer.

Huckleberry finally visits The Pub

Ten men covered various distances at my first post at The Pub.  Not a Pub, but THE Pub. The opportunities for routes are endless, but today, YHC selected the Snoballs route.  Nine PAX probably made it to Snoballs… and one did not.  Several rucked beforehand and at least one ran.


Announcements: OST toy drive, Convergence at Gashouse on Saturday followed by the CHRISTmas party that evening.

Prayer requests: Stroganoff’s friend, local PAX, Sly

BOM: YHC closed in prayer.

It was an honor to be amongst you men today.
