Missionary Exercise

Today missionaries are given a half-hour a day towards exercise. In my day, it was optional. As a result, if any missionary wanted to exercise he or she would have to wake up early to do so. On my mission, there was only one time I stuck to an exercise regime for any length of time and that was with my trainer the first couple of months in the field. He, like Elder Long, was going home soon and wanted to be in good shape in preparation for his return. Unlike Elder Long, though, he was already in good shape.

I probably didn't gain much from the early morning jogs those first couple of months, but at least I got a couple of comic strips out of them.
