Kudos to runners everywhere

25 Jul

Let me explain about the title. If you are a good friend of mine, you already know that in Nov 2009, I had gastric bypass surgery because of several life threatening health problems. I’m happy to say that the problems are all gone like high blood pressure, diabetes, etc. Anyway, My mail carrier gets here to my apartment complex everyday at noon. If I miss him, then I have a second source to mail my letters and bills-yes; folks! I still mail my bills and use postage, I’m old-fashioned! There is a copy center on the corner of the nearby shopping center, and she takes the mail to the post office at 4:30p.m. Well, it was 4:25p.m., and wouldn’t you know it, my maintenance man showed up unannounced about the leaky faucet I told him about 2 weeks ago! So, I’m trying to get him to hurry, and he was able to fix the problem in under a minute. So, I said goodbye, and I literally ran down to the corner. Here’s the thing. I thought since I had lost 168 pounds, that I would be able to run there with no problem. WRONG! I was winded and tired in about a minute. The best that I can figure out is that I’m not in shape to run, and have to do some training to do so. So, my hat is off to you runners out there that I see running around the city and my neighborhood. I can only imagine what kind of training you must do to become adequate at running!
