Getting in shape?

Wednesday, I got up at the butt crack of dawn to help Amanda move into her new apartment in Oakdale. When I got back home, I went out with a firefighter buddy and ran some laps at the track near my house. He's training for the firefighter combat challenge. I'm trying to get into better shape than what I'm in. Hopefully, we'll both be successful.

We ran, jogged and walked two miles. This is an accomplishment because -- for the most part -- if you see me running, it's only because someone is chasing me. Of course, I can only imagine the pain I'll be in tomorrow. But I shall work through it. It takes 21 days to start a habit. Hopefully I can start a fitness habit... because if you think I never update my journal as it is... it'll be happening even less if I'm dead.

By the way...

I forgot to say that I'm 99.5% certain I made an A and a B in my two summer courses. I can not convey to you how cool that is for me. Making decent "marks" isn't a suprise to me. I planned to do well in these classes... But a period GPA of 3.5 isn't common by any stretch of the imagination.
