IPC Week 2 – Belle Ringer

AO: The Hooch

When: 09/12/2022

QIC: Popper

PAX (10): BallBoy, Birdie, Boomer, Flo, Maguire, Meatball, Pop, Popper, Splinter, Tater Tot


Seeing as YHC’s fingers and thumbs can barely move after today’s IronPAX Challenge Week 2 beatdown, “Belle Ringer”, this backblast will be short and sweet.

Thanks Flo and Birdie for help setting up the course according to the F3 Greenwood boys’ instructions: a wheel with a center dot and five 25-yard spokes in roughly a star pattern.


Given the 45-minute AMRAP format, the PAX got going with disclaimer and warm-up a few minutes before 5:30: SSH, WP, WM, Michael Phelps, Overhead Claps.

The Thang:

The beatdown was as much a workout for hands, fingers and thumbs as for major muscle groups. Poor 13-year-old Tater Tot will have trouble holding a pencil for his math test today.


The 45-minute timer dinged and the PAX breathed a sigh of relief. Circled up.

  • Heard some war stories from the Blue Ridge Relay (BRR) stalwarts who posted Monday morning for IPC; strong work, BallBoy and Birdie.
  • Prayers for Flo’s mom in a transition
  • Prayers for Popper’s work travels

Naked-Man Moleskin:

You know a beatdown is tough when half of the Hooch opts to run 208 miles over the weekend in BRR instead of having to post Monday and do this slobber-knocker. Great work to the Hooch PAX this morning who did it; good luck to the PAX of the Alpha who have yet to do it. Thanks to all for making YHC stronger in the gloom.
