Via FaceBook, a friend of mine was talking about lowcost (i.e. free) exercise options.
The topic of the stairs in the stadium on campus came up. And naturally what followed was the idea that going up and down the stairs in some kind of organized, regular fashion would be beneficial for one’s health.
I do believe that this is true.
BUT what has me baffled is that she has convinced me to do this.
ME! The girl of the bike and the pool but not the girl of sneakers.
I had to buy new sneakers.
I did the stairs on my own this week.
Up. And Down. 20 times each way.
I did not hear the roar of the phantom crowd in the stadium. Just the roar of the blood in my ears and my pounding heart.
The view from the top is worth it. Even after the 20th time.
