looking back...

from January 1st, 2011

"I can remember standing at the bottom of the stairs at Luna Park, Sydney (June 2010) and looking at
them in dismay. I gave Mark my camera bag, told him to go ahead and I'd meet him at the top.
I struggled up those stairs, my breathing was labouring heavily, my legs felt like jelly and I clutched the
sides and pulled myself up. My chest actually ached when I reached the top and I wondered if I would
have a heart attack. When we flew home the sides of the seat were literally digging in to me and I had to
contort my body to do up the seatbelt and I spent the entire flight with it strangling me.
What was I doing to myself :(

New me. I'm tempted to fly back to Sydney and run up those stairs just because I know I could now :)"


Sydney - August 2011. I ran those stairs three times :)
