I signed up for a fitness program. It’s a two-week program, 6 days a week, with just Sundays to get some rest between the training. It’s going to be fun.

[BOOK REVIEW: Behold the Man by Bodie & Brock Thoene]

You know, when you struggle for breath, there’s nothing more satisfying than inhaling and feeling that life-giving oxygen as it gets to where it is supposed to.
