running up stairs

If there’s a choice, I’ll always take the stairs.

The sign on the London Underground reads “Priority seat. For people who are disabled, pregnant or less able to stand”.

Those who are less able to stand.

Compared to me, that’s pretty much everyone. I don’t mean that as a boast. I’m very fortunate. Right now I’m physically able. One day I know it won’t be like that.

So, given the opportunity, I test myself. Can I sprint up those stairs two at a time? Can I beat the lift? What am I capable of?

If there’s a path, I’ll always walk.
