Confession: I am not, in any way, shape, or form, an athlete. Although I recognize the physical and mental importance of exercise, this has mostly meant for me a leisurely stroll with Orie, my labroador-retriever mix. In elementary school, I cringed when it was my turn at kickball and my classmates in the infield would yell, “Ali’s up!” and take a few (very big) intentional steps forward. I took an extra science class in high school to avoid gym. You get the picture.
