  • Message
    • 2nd F – keep communicating. Reach out to each other.  I had multiple F3 brothers reach out to me to make sure I was okay during quarantine and it meant a lot.  Reach out to those that you haven’t seen.  Personally, I loved the first few Zoom work-outs but they quickly got stale for me because I missed the 2nd F and the mumble chatter.  Keep reaching out to each other and be there for each other.  Nothing about this quarantine was normal, and people are built to interact with each other and develop relationships.
