– This was my first Q at Centurion, sorry if my head was in the clouds this AM.  This head and chest cold w/ addition to some good meds from the DR and no hops, it’s not the flu (I was tested), I just felt slightly out of it.  Either way, thanks for allowing me to lead, I always have fun putting a workout together.

– I can’t even tell you who arrived at exactly 0530 (maybe later).  Nice Job boys.  I intended to run and pick you up with the rest of the Pax, but I realized when I said run to 51, they took the shorter route- well played.

–  I heard some mumble chatter for using a new wall at Walgreens, hope you liked it.  It looked good on my recon trip so I wanted to spend sometime there.

– Ok, YHC took a lot of crap about his F3 handle, many of you seem to be cheese coinsures:)  I think I also overheard comments about finger tip pull ups on the wall.  The wall was textured making them harder, but I found if you were creative with you position, it wasn’t so bad.

-Apparently a few pax had concern on my form on occasion and was also counting my pull ups (Mic Check) I said, head cold, just tying to remember what was next.

– I was proud that at least one team picked a “boulder” for the relay race.  Please sound off if someone took a small one.

– Since numbers did not workout, I got to partner with our solo rucker- Udder and we made the best out of swapping the ruck v rock.  Sorry Udder, I had a party foul and set the Ruck down (several times)- my bad!



– F3 has a discount for the Spartan Race on March 23, I am doing all 3 this year and would like to have more Area 51 guys out there.

– GoRuck there is STILL time to get in, but please hurry. Go to webpage for details

– BRR this will close out soon…see our website

One of my only posts last week was at Centurion on Friday. Today’s post didn’t seem like the in same place compared to the snow and ice covered landscape the Hops, Haze, Escargot, and I slipped around on last week.

Nice lead Curd. Very creative use of the grounds.

Pudding Pop was in charge of picking out the rock for our 3 man team and hobbled back with a boulder. It certainly wasn’t easy lugging that thing around.
Strong work Pudding and Mighty.

You couldn’t ask for better February weather today. It was even warm enough for Rolling Rock to make it out.

Good Q Curd. Kotters to Frack – glad you’re officially off the DL. And welcome to Indian Hill – FNG to Centurion?
Good to know Puddin’ Pop is in my neighborhood. We got serious clowncar potential now with MC, Curd, Puddin’ Pop and Pele.
Chelms and Abacus must have celebrated too much with Carolina beating Duke….there was much rejoicing in my home as well. M. Hops was fired up and kept stating how great it felt to beat Coach K (or ratface or something like that).

Guilty as charged. Thoroughly enjoyed watching the Tar Heels take out the Dookies last night. Thought about posting at Centurion, but just wasn’t in the cards after a late night of b-ball viewing.

Did not watch the game, but had a friend in town I had not seen in a very long time. Posting was not a good idea. Great to see Indian Hill on the list, hope to see you back brother. Sorry I missed the great discussion at the Stand. Hitting the rock the morning. Aye!

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
