>Day 5 of fabulous Disease Week here at the Napkin Dad Daily.
Can a disease week even be fabulous?
At first I thought this applied to us old folk who wake up creaky in some
new part of our bods every morning. But then I thought about my life
as an active, fitness oriented person.
This started pretty late in life for me. I was 45 before I joined a gym.
About 50 when I started running and didn’t start doing it in any organized
fashion until last year. What I learned was that being fit and healthy is a
pain. I mean that literally. I had a new pain every day when I started at the
gym. I have aches in my calves one week, then in my foot the next, then in
my back, when I am training for a run. But I have come to learn that is
proof that I am healthy. I am working my body. It may not like it. It may
rebel and get mad at me. But it will appreciate it in the long run and thank me.
What about you, are you healthy enough to say it hurts in a new place every day?
