Good news bad news time
Good news: Today during the run, I didn't have to fall out. I was able to keep up with the formation the entire time. Running speed and endurance have both increased incredibly.
Bad news: I have been cut from the Ranger Challenge program. It's a varsity level sport, and they want the best team possible.
I don't need any condolences. I did my best, and have no regrets. I've learned a lot; mainly that I need to improve my run time by quite a bit. I've become too specialized; too much of a fighter and not enough of an athlete/soldier. It's a crossroads in my training; I need to decide what I want.
Continuing on the bad news; I'm sick. Sore throat. I'm taking the rest of the day off.
