Shakin Not Stirred, Virgin Q


After returning home from the Oak City Recovery Run Club block party on Tuesday night, I sat with the M watching the Bachelor Winter Games (because I suppose that's more entertaining than the quadrennial actual winter games), looking at a map of Bond Park, and perusing the exicon and this fine F3 nation page.

Tortoises, Virgin Q

Back to Back 03 Jan 2018

15 degrees could not keep 13 HIMS from donning their tights for another weight intensive Tortoise workout. After much tutelage by Hermes YHC was prepared and eager to Q my first.

Bradford's Ordinary, Virgin Q

Over Hill and Dale in Downtown Cary

So a few weeks ago I was complaining giving constructive criticism about an Indian Run we were in the middle of when Term Paper said, "Guess what, VQ week is right around the corner and you can plan an even better workout."  Dazed and confused, YHC finds himself in the gloom, in front of FUMC, … Continue reading

Fitness, Tortoises, Virgin Q


It's hard to write the backblast for my VQ without getting somewhat reflective and sentimental, but I'll save that for the NMS at the bottom of the post. First, here's what went down in the Peak City gloom this morning at Tortoises. Earhart and Freebird came cruising in from their usual EC run. Various mumble … Continue reading
