Well, it was a combination of running, jogging, walking, crawling, gasping…but I did it! My son went out with me and I took the important thing like my cell phone and left that trivial life-saving device like rescue asthma inhaler at home. I was so excited about my first running attempt that I headed out the door without it. DO NOT TRY THAT AT HOME KIDS! THIS CAN ONLY BE DONE BY A PROFESSIONAL IDIOT! Halfway down the road I was thinking to myself, “How could you have remembered your cell phone and forgotten your inhaler? ” Hmmm…a little preoccupied I suppose. ; ) Thank you David @ testingtruechange and to my friend Kimmy for encouraging me to run and believing that I could.
My almost 16-year-old son was kind enough to be my running partner today. My youngest son and I are very close. He is very supportive of my weight loss journey and always offers words of encouragement. It always amazes me when I come down the stairs after getting ready in the morning and my son notices a new outfit or new hairstyle and says, “Wow Mom, you look great!” He is a keeper! He had enormous patience today as I ran, then stopped to catch my breath, ran, then stopped to catch my breath, ran, and then went into an asthma attack. All the while he told me I was doing great, even though I knew that I wasn’t breaking any first time out records. ; ) Making memories!
Take It Or Leave It…
Get your doctor’s approval before beginning any exercise regimen and then get out there and move. If I can run, ANYBODY CAN RUN. The point is to move your body, get out and have some fun!
