Written/posted by Mermaid for Titan Q
24 men for what I will call a celebrity guest Q from Titan, who posts mostly Metro, but lives near the A51 line. Margo planted the shovel flag and Titan disclaimed the crew. The Metro guys do abbreviated disclaimers. Went something like this: “I am your Q and we will do some stupid stuff. Modify as necessary.” Perfect. Off we went

-Lorax crushed the 7’s. Scabby was right there with him. Titan a few paces back.
-7’s was a long set
-Titan’s VQ at Centurion. He told YHC he had to come over and scope out the AO to prepare. Well done with the Q. Thanks for leading the group today. Always nice to have a new Q lead and go to some different spots.
-Haze whined about doing burpees. Said he will be filing a formal complaint with upper mgmt. There must be a form for that somewhere. Will reach out to Alf
-Kotters to Red Rocks
-Kotters to Black Beard, who had an actual black beard
-Fairly certain Ickey Shuffle is sticking with Burpee-Free October
-Chelms did not post
-Solid work by this crew of 24
-No recording of name-o-rama. I missed 3 names, I think. Didn’t think about my having to post the BB until Titan asked after the workout.
-Back to the BB title. I have known our Q, Titan, for much longer than I have been doing F3. Back in 2013 we were at my twin brother’s bachelor party at Lake Lure. We stayed in Rumbling Bald resort in the Dirty Dancing house. The deck overlooked the Dirty Dancing green where Jerry Orbach was pulled of the course to fix the bootleg abortion done on Johnny’s sister. The home’s owners had a bunch of memorabilia down in the basement, including a big poster with their faces superimposed over Johnny and Baby’s. You can’t make this stuff up. Anyhow, got to talking with Titan and the subject of working out came up. He told me about this F3 thing he had been doing and invited me out to try it. The libations did the talking for me and I quickly responded that yes, of course I would like to try it. Nevermind that I had never been a runner and it involved running. The weekend cam and went. The next week I got a message from Titan to post Centurion. For whatever reason, I could not make it. Well, he sent me a message the following week. This pattern suggested I was not getting out of this commitment. I posted Centurion 04/12/2013. Titan was there. Dora was on Q and we completed Byron’s 40th bday workout. That sh*t hurt. Bad. My quads were sore for a week from the squats. My lack of running skills was prominently displayed in my performance. I did it though. I knew I was going to get named afterwards. There were a few FNGs there, including my neighbor, Cane. I provided a little generic info on myself. The group waffled on a few names. Titan pipes in, “Wait a minute, you were a D1 swimmer. How about Mermaid?” I tried to interject and that sealed the deal. I didn’t want to be called Mermaid. I wanted a beastly name like Titan or Thor or Wolverine. Mermaid it was. So, big thanks to Titan for the invite and the subsequent accountability needed to actually get me to post. F3, essentially, is the hangover I walked away from that bachelor party with. It has lasted 5 and a half years and has made me a better human being.
Charlotte Marathon in November. Speed for Need is looking for Track Commanders. Scabby is your guy
