Primary BB author and YHC: JR
Color commentary by Camo in Italics

To the tune of “Straight Outta Compton”:

“Straight Outta Katy
Two Crazy Qs – JR and Camo
From the pax called
Hoggz with Attitude
After I dry dock
I grab a cinder block
Squeeze the trigger
And bears are hauled off…”


Apologies to Ice Cube #SorryNotSorry

Bringing the Katy thang to the Memorial gloom.  Camo hauled 784 pounds of #LittleDarlin’s to the AO. #NewShocks.


YHC asked for FNGs. Seeing none, I referred to http://f3nation.com/disclaimer-and-notice/.  Admitted Co-Qs are not professionals.  F3 workouts are voluntary and free. It’s dark and the ground is uneven.  Camo clarified use good form. Modify as needed. #YouAgainstYou Notify the Q of any serious medical conditions. #PushYourselfButDontHurtYourself Aye!


Clear, room-temperature 72 degrees, just enough humidity to keep the PAX wet #DuhItIsHouston


Mosey southeast down Haskell.  YHC has never run without 20+ Pax ahead of him.  Bizarre to breathe clean air.  #100MilesAndRunnin  Mumblechatter wakes up some neighborhood dogs.  #GangstaGangsta Break up the monotony with side shuffle (R then L), high knees, butt kickers, karaoke (R then L).  Climb over the barricade. #IfItAintRuff

Circle up in the pool parking lot for the warmup.

  • Carolina Dry Docks x 10 IC
  • Speed lunges 20 each leg OYO
  • Incline Merkins on pipe x 10 IC

(Camo) Had initially planned a little RnR action here, but audibled for time to make sure we had enough for plenty of #BearHuntin’!  In retrospect we could have done a second set.

Mosey back to Camo’s sweet Tundra. #CashMoney. The Pax picks up cinder blocks.  Nice crowd, more Pax than cinderblocks. #Ruthless

Haul Cinder Blocks to Duggar Memorial Field:

After a short counting tutorial, partner up.  #IAin’tThaOne

Block Wheel Barrows: Camo knew this one was new and could be terrible.  It was Duggar whp mumblechattered “It looked better on paper”.  Partner 1 grabs the block and attempts to wheel barrow using the block as an inefficiently designed wheel.  Modification ensued.  Wheel barrel to the first conita.  Flapjack back to the start. #SomethingLikeThat

(Camo) All kinds of #MidwifeNoises ensued here.  Very much enjoyed the relative distances achieved with each block before #Modify occurred.  T’claps to Britney*

Partner Work: Partner 1 does Decline Block Merkins while Partner 2 does squat overhead press (Bear) for a partner total count of 50 derkins. #Something2Dance2

(Camo) We’ll do 100 next time, 50 was too easy.

Bear Hunter: Pax starts at the middle conita.  Partner 1 (the bear) bear crawls toward the finish.  Partner 2 (the hunter) sprints back to the start line.  When Partner 2 reaches the starting line, the hunt begins. Sprint to the bear and make the kill.  Then hunter carries the bear back to the middle.  Flapjack partners and RnR.  #CrowdPleaser

Mosey to the Shovel Flags for Mary: JR took back the Q for 10 minutes of Mary

  • Greatest American Hero (Terminal Velocity Style)

#CountORama / #NameORama

28 PAX. T’claps Brothers!

Word of the Day: A little lingo lesson from the lexicon (http://f3nation.com/lexicon/#h):

HATE: Those PAX still in their 30s.

HATE HATE: Those PAX still their 20s.

RESPECT: A PAX who has reached his 50th birthday.

Thanks Inferno for the camerawork!

#BoM (Ball of Man)

TAPs for Infernos M recovery, and Camo, Inferno’s M’s half-Marathon Saturday.  JR led prayer for sky Q guidance. #IronSharpensIron #QuietOnThaSet

#Naked Man Moleskin (Camo)

  •  Loved bringing back the #LittleDarlins for some down-n-dirty fun; it had been too long! #NeedsWereMet
  • Many, many #MidwifeNoises heard during the first set of Block Barrows.  Even had some PAX who thought they were made of sugar by the way they avoided the water!
  • T’claps to Britney who showed us how it’s done during the #BlockBarrows.  He straight did a full pull the whole length with the block.  #StrongWork
  • T’claps to Zelda during the wheel barrow, finished it strong!  And, got the pleasure of carrying YHC during the #Bear Hunter!
  • T’claps to Lock Smith during the #BearHunter, came in hauling his partner full speed and strong at the end

From JR: Thanks for the opportunity to lead!  Appreciate the challenge Camo! #NDaHouse

From Camo: Great VQ JR!  Enjoyed it immensely brother!  And, thanks to the PAX not only for the opportunity to lead, but for the chance to dig deep in the Crazy bin and test out the #BlockBarrows.  We had fun with this one, hope y’all did too!
