Empty PlateToday I am fasting. I am participating in the Fast-A-Thon, an event designed to increase awareness world hunger and faiths on campus. Since 7:00 p.m. last night I have not eaten anything. I will not eat again until 7:00 p.m. tonight. The biggest challenge will be rugby practice today in the middle of the fast. My energy might flag a little for that. Right now, I feel good. I had short fasts frequently throughout high school because I believed that one cannot truly enjoy food if one never experiences hunger. We will see if I still retain that viewpoint at 7:00 p.m.
