This morning I did something unprecedented...I ran. It was not far or fast but it was enough to make me feel proud. I alternated between running and walking for roughly 3/4 a mile. I hate physical exertion. Thanks exercise induced asthma! The rush of air in and out of my lungs burns and I don't like feeling like I'm breathing molten glass. The coughing fits after are no fun either. I also don't sweat. Really, I don't. I overheat and feel like I'm burning up with the rays of 10,000 suns. My red blotchy skin shows the heat all too well like a lobster in it's final boiling bath.
Basically, exercises makes me feel like I am the girl on fire. Today, I was ok with it. I can't guarantee that I will do it often but I did it today and that's what counts. Baby steps but today I'm thankful to be moving at all.
