Autumn Arrives

YHC was excited for my first Q at Flirtin' With Disaster and arrived early to scope things out.  Some plans had to change when I realized how incredibly dark the park is.  And after what seemed like two weeks of sauna like weather it finally starsted to feel like October.  I may have been the … Continue reading

Continued Odyessy Recovery

14 PAX gathered in the swampy pit of Marla Dorrel Park this July October morning.  With the temp at 75 and the humidity at 132%, everyone worked up a good sweat walking from their cars to the shovel flag.  Most were relatively early this morning, YHC assumed that spirits were high with anticipation.  5:45, time to … Continue reading

Happy Birthday to Me!

What a fantastic, cool, lovey morning.  And dark.  Good heavens Marla Dorrel Park is dark at 5:45 in the morning.  As it is so dark, 5:45 finds Chanticleer rolling in and undressing as we roll out of the park and up into the parking lot in front of Lowes Foods.  Also known as "The New … Continue reading

Everyone needs a little encouragement!

So I found out on Monday that 9/12 was National Day of Encouragement and that Chinese Downhill needing to switch so I had the Q! Must be God's providence. Woke up to rain so plans changed a little.  8 guys started out and we headed up the Cary Parkway hill to the covered parking. Now … Continue reading

It’s Just a Little Mist

With the promise of possibly the first meaningful rain in a few months, I thought I should remind all of our newer guys that we workout whether it's hot or cold, rain or shine. I mean, you haven't lived until you've worked out in a driving rain or snowstorm. So I posted it on one … Continue reading

Flirtin’ With a Double Dribble

On Wednesday,  August 22nd, the Carpex Fighting Fish PAXetball team meet at Marla Dorrell park, the home of Carpex Court, for an early morning practice. 27 members of the team, YHC included and an FNG from New Jersey (lifelong friend of YHC) met at the hardwood (or pavement), because as YHC’s tweet pointed out, “Hard … Continue reading

Flirtin' With Disaster, Virgin Q


YHC was super pumped up with Q-Drenaline for his VQ. So pumped up that he initially got into the car this AM without his running shoes.  So pumped up that he drew up a 2-sided weinke in 4-point font that was entirely unreadable in the early gloom.  So pumped up that he was nearly made … Continue reading

A Bridge Too Far

Pick Up Your 6

"Who you spend time with is who you become. Proximity is power." - Tony Robbins This quote came across my Twitter feed this weekend and I loved it. Right away it made me think of my F3 brothers.  The ones I see everyday that help make me better.  Not only physically but also, through fellowship … Continue reading

Hills for days (or at least 45 minutes)

17 men showed up on the least gloomiest of mornings in hopes that their Q shopping choice would pay off.  But let's be honest, when your choices are Largemouth or YHC, it's not pretty either way. Warmup: Quick jog around the pickle to the wee-man's basketball court. Homer to Marge out the gate (Yoga Mat's … Continue reading
