5 years ago I was an avid runner. I ran every day that I could. I loved it. Then I moved into a house with mold. My asthma kicked into overdrive and I stopped running. It was awful, and even though we don't live there anymore I still struggle with it. But this morning I went for a run. It was my first real run in years. Up to this point I've been hanging out on the elliptical or power walking. Not today. I ran 1.4 miles in 15:59. I'm not super speedy, and it sure wasn't pretty, but I did it. I DID IT! I know it doesn't seem like much, but getting out there and running felt good. And the best part was that I didn't even need my inhaler. I'm so excited and proud of myself for getting out there and doing it. And tomorrow I will do it again. A day at a time, and one small victory at a time.
