Red face, gallons of sweat was self-conscious. Now = tough!
Wednesday, June 27, 2012
I'm Irish and German, a heritage I believe limits my ability to dump heat! And overheating makes my face glow like a cherry Koolaid. 30 years obese and out of shape led to lots of glowing and sweat with any activity. As recently as Feb, I was really self-conscious about getting so hot while running. This morning, almost 90 degrees, after 2 hours of exercise, I realized flowing and sweating show just how tough I've gotten! Plenty of things still make me self-conscious about my appearance. I'm just not willing to let them limit my activities.
