24. This is me, in the lab. Besides the lab monitor and me, there is only one other person here. My eyes may look a little red and there may be bags underneath but on the inside I actually feel… I feel good. I’ve hit mile 3 and I’m now coasting. You know that runner’s wall where everything up to mile 3 is something you wouldn’t wish on anybody? However, when you stride past mile 3 you no longer feel pain, inhibition, or the spikes in your lungs due to little air flow.

I am here in the lab that is about to close and I feel pretty good considering the circumstances. I need to do this more often. I like knowing that I am making some dent in my life goals and daily to-do lists.  Now it is off to the J-lab on 4th floor because they run 24/7!
