I went to the track again today..
I pushed myself hard, made my heart beat fast and perspired a little too and achieved 15 laps (3 kms) in 30 minutes.
Afterwards I felt amazing!
It was tinged with a little sadness on seeing someone that was me not so long ago. She managed a few laps at a slow pace and in every step she took you could see the pain she suffered. I wanted to hug her.. tell her that all she had to do was keep coming back to walk a little and soon the pain would begin to disappear and her smile would broaden and there would come a day when she actually walked faster than someone else and one day she would realize there was no pain… and she’d cry with happiness..
I hope I see her again…
