Kung-Fu Wednesday!

“Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but we rather have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.”

– Aristotle

Notes: Felt sore and aching so I originally decided to do a full body massage. But I recalled a dude with boxing gloves the other day here at the Downtown Phoenix Sun Devil Fitness Complex so I was thinking there was definitely a room with a punching bag. Asked the front desk and sure enough, after switching my ID, I got the keys to this room and some gloves! It has always been a dream of mine to practice some kinda martial arts. OH YEAAHH! I’m so living my dreams here in America!
