I reckon you should only ever get fit, for your own personal want. Not to impress, as having this as your only goal will always make you feel down because it will never be good enough.

exercising (the word diligent is only ever used in school report cards so am dropping it in for flair) and also an excuse to see
my brother at least once a week. Forced bonding time and stuff. So it should be fun! Lets learn how to… kayak! Then compete as kayakers from the seven seas, in 4 months. So let it
This is me looking ready.
