So this year was the worst one internally since I became a father because of my current situation in life and is behind my drive to get an advanced degree. Today it was almost 80 when fitness class went outside and it really made me parched while I pushed myself at a constant pace during the fitness test. I saw an increase in everything tested from push ups to how far I could aerobic walk for 12 minutes. In most categories the numbera nearly doubled in the same amount of time. When I was filling my water bottle it reminded me of how blessed I felt when my son gave it to me. This really is the motivation behind my fitness quest: to become a better person and thereby a better dad.
