As a kid growing up, I stayed away from sports. I was uncoordinated and awkward. Instead of running towards the ball in 4th grade soccer, I ran away. I sat in the dirt and dug holes during t-ball games, and was generally picked last for any team sports. In middle school I found my niche in the music and theater scene. From there on out stayed clear of anything to do with athletics.
I always equated fitness with sports- so because I wasn’t great at sports, therefore I couldn’t belong in a gym.
