One of the things that I have found about men of substance, is that journals are a focal point of their lives. They record musings, important ideas, and desires for the future among other things. The writing is preserved for their future use, and as a record of their lives that may not see the light of day until they have run their race. I hope to begin a good habit here and try to stick with it. I have had many friends say that if I wrote a book, they would buy it; so I must say things that, at least on some level, is something worth recording.
Currently, I'm in the midst of bringing myself back into the world of fitness. I was training for The Bataan Memorial Death March last year, but was thrown off balance by a breakup. The BMDM is next March, which leaves me eight months and some change to train. I was using a combination of kettlebells, conventional cardio, and ruckmarching. I plan on continuing this method, with some different techniques that I have learned over the last year. An additional bit of motivation is that I have a promotion and a new job school in the pipeline with my National Guard unit; which all hinges on passing a Physical Training test, so my desire is twofold.
