Why I Stay Fit

I don't write about this very often, but I worry about my health
every single day. Unfortunately, losing both of your parents to cancer
will do that to you.

Beginning when I was fourteen, I spent ten
years watching both of my parents go in and out of the hospital. I
watched them prep and recover from surgeries. I watched them go through
chemo and radiation. I watched them lose weight, hair and strength.

of this had a pretty drastic effect on my faith in my own health. And
although I've done a lot of emotional work to overcome my fears of my
body and my health, I still worry on a daily basis that I'm going to get
sick one day too.

This is the single motivating factor behind my
reasons for staying fit.
