For the last few weeks, Amy and I have been running a couple of miles around our neighborhood. We usually do this about 3 times a week. During these past weeks, something has become painstakingly clear to me: I am out of shape. Gone are the days of effortless running and soccer-produced endurance. Granted, I still play football, basketball, soccer, and other sports with the youth, but it doesn't take long for before I have to stop and catch my breath. Well, tonight after Amy and I finished running, she came inside and did push-ups and sit-ups. What did I do? Well, I sipped a Dr. Pepper and ate potato chips. I know one thing is for sure: I am sure glad that I have a fast metabolism...and I hope that it doesn't slow down anytime soon.
