  • Prayers for injured reserve, family members receiving medical care and those working through the winter doldrums
  • Selleck acknowledged the power of early rising
    • Acknowledging his initial interest in F3 surrounded physical fitness goals (uh…still in progress), the early rising associated with F3 is foundational for consistency and resiliency associated with #HIM at work and at home. Something Selleck did not expect to gain from the PAX
    • Selleck thanked the PAX for the motivation and excitement to wake-up early and invest in what matter most – particularly in these wintry months.
    • Looking ahead a week at the weather this FFF (Final Friday in February) may be one of last brisk days in the 20s for sometime. Enjoy the balmy 30s.
  • Coffeteria followed along with attaboys for Lowman’s Spike return from the IR list.

Aye,

Selleck
