Waves of Pink II: Common Ground, Uncommon Courage
I have always been an athlete, and exercise has long been a part of my daily routine. In the beginning I committed to myself that if I couldn’t do anything else, I would at least go for a walk every single day. And walk I did. Some days I could only make it to the mailbox and back, but as I regained my strength after each procedure, my walks lengthened. When I was strong enough, I would work my way back to my normal exercise routines. I’m so thankful that for the most part I recovered from my treatments and surgeries quickly. I attribute it to the fact that every day, if I couldn’t do anything else, I at least got up and out for a short walk.
