Facing down fatigue

I knew it was going to be challenging. But I didn’t know it was going to be this challenging. 

The camping trip I was on is a big tradition at my summer camp, and I knew it would mean being pushed in ways I hadn’t been pushed before. I was expecting intense physical labor, coupled with only two to three hours of sleep per night, as we raced to build a series of structures in the woods. But I wasn’t expecting the lack of sleep to bother me so much, and I quickly began feeling extremely tired.
