Harness Energy

Studies have found that exercise may help cancer patients live longer, but during chemotherapy, the mechanics of running escaped me. So, I gave myself a pep talk. “Are you hunched over? Straighten your torso. Hold your head up. Harness energy from the thoughts that terrorize you. Raise those knees, take it out on the ground. Don’t keep your arms useless by your sides, work them. Relax your shoulders. Lead with your chest to improve lung capacity. Breathe. Do not forget to breathe.” Now cancer-free and mother to an exuberant boy, I gain strength from the pep talk even when I’m not running. — Onege Mbogandem Maroadi
