The BackBlast:

Birthday Q in Seattle, WA

PAX: Ferarri (Wardaddy), Maytag, Celtic, Smokey, Dreamliner (Q)

YHC pulled out an old (5 years old) backblast for his 32nd birthday Q. The workout has been edited below. Excerpts from 27th Q backblast remain for posterity (denoted by italics).

YHC’s 27th birthday did not get off to the start YHC expected. Driving home yesterday, YHC found the tunnel at a complete standstill. The Civic could not stop in time and crunched a work van. The Civic may have met its demise but all drivers are okay and really that is all that matters.

Today, started off much better. SpaceMonkey picked YHC up this morning. His chauffeur document read, “Dr. Dreamliner, Bear Country.” I may be paraphrasing slightly but you get the drift. He literally was holding this sign when I walked down the steps this morning.

Now, on to the workout.

Naked-Man-Moleskin (NMM):

There is no better way to live than with gratefulness and the cup half full. As I said goodbye to the trusty Civic, I am happy to be here and that only metal was bent. Metal can easily be fixed.

YHC had a blast Q’ing downrange and celebrating my birthday.

Thank you to all the PAX of F3 Seattle and F3 Puget Sound for being amazing hosts the last two weeks.
