Watermelon Sugar High

AO: Atlas

When: 07/26/2022

QIC: No-See-Um

PAX (9): Dipstick, False Start, Padre, Ponyboy, Rusty, Sell-out, Thud, Pinto (FNG)


YHC threw out a teaser back in late June about some surprises coming at a BD here at Atlas come late July. Luckily, YHC had remembered to grab the Q today, the last Tuesday in July! And also remembered on Sunday afternoon that there needed to be some extra, early mumble chatter started for Atlas this week.


Not sure if the promise of post COT treats did it or just that everyone is back in town from vaca’s…..but Atlas numbers were strong today with 9 #HIM setting that alarm and being ready to go at 5:30 am!!


Disclaimer given and a warm welcome as well, especially to our FNG (great to have you Pinto!).



After retrieving blocks from the vault, the pax Cusak’d to the light pole for some various warm-ups including SSH, Weed Pickers, Windmills, Arm Circles, Covids, Mtn. Climbers and Merkins.


Enough of the warm-up, time to get to some pain. Okay, maybe a little more warm-up as YHC tried some Over/Under’s and Side-to-Sides with men in straight line using his new GORUCK sandbags (2-40 #’ers & 1-60 #’er). This got a few laughs and grunts so that was good.

The Thang:


Partner up for some DORA 50-100-150-200-250

*Mary for the six and just enough time for a set of 7’s – Mike Tyson’s / Thrusters. Almost got through the 7’s but 6:15 got us so dropped the blocks back off and back to the starting point.

  • F3/FIA Convergance on August 6, 7:00 am at Rubicon (Wills Park). Pretty sure 2.0’s are welcome but check slack for details.


  • Darth Visor Memorial CSAUP – 8/27, 6:45 am at Big Creek (Fowler Park) – THIS is a great time and Everyone should SERIOUSLY consider making this event!!!


Naked-Man Moleskin:

What a great morning in the Alpha as NINE strong pax got their sweat on at Atlas. Really awesome to see the bigger than usual numbers at this AO. And also great to have an FNG out…welcome to F3 Alpha Pinto!


AND all that joined got a special treat at the end as YHC just happened to have a freshly cut WATERMELON. Did I mention it was COLD and freshly cut the night before. Now, YHC is really not even a watermelon guy….but damn that was good.


Some might say that at the very end of the morning….standing around our tailgates….we all had a Watermelon Sugar High!!!
