You know what? I am lucky. Last Saturday I went for a long run with my friend and trainer Carol, to prep for an upcoming race. Came back home afterward, dawdled around the house for a while. Finally took a shower before heading out shopping, and as I splashed water my face and tasted salt from being all sweaty before, I thought again of how lucky I am.
I *like* that salty taste. I *like* working out hard and getting all sweaty. I *enjoy* eating all those vegetables I eat. The things I am doing for staying healthy are work, but they are not hardship and drudgery.
