Reluctant Yankee was scheduled to Q for the Mothership, but the Baton Rouge Launch was calling for him like a Hyena mother calls for her pups in the middle of the night. Since YHC had some commitments with the M this day, it made sense to take the Q and let our Regional Nantan show his F3 physique to all the new Baton Rouge men, a sign of what F3 will do for you.
YHC was preparing the beatdown the night before, then a bottle of wine came calling, similar to some of the calls made by referees against the Saints in a playoff game. There was just too much to consider….would it be raining….would it be muddy….does any of that really matter…..?
With the list sabotaged, it would have to be on the Fly!
After a brief disclaimer, and some mumblechatter from Rudy about being one of the worst he’s ever heard, it was off to the peristyle for a warmup. Rudy went the other way, running his 20 miles this day in preparation for his marathon in March. That’s some serious commitment! T-Claps to Rudy!

Mosey back to VSF.
Count off, name-o-rama, announcements, intentions, and closed with a prayer to the Sky Q.
T-Claps to the several Pax that found their way to Baton Rouge today to help spread F3, which is a gift that is difficult to describe in words. We come together from all walks of life, where we share a common goal, which is to become better men and to become stronger leaders, among other things. I’m honored to be a part of F3. The coffeteria after the beat down is always great, and is never dull!
The Pax each did roughly 115 burpees today, with a lot of other exercises. Well done, men!
