When were you last out of breath?

When were you last out of breath?

Not just winded. I mean completely, thoroughly, can’t-speak-for-a-minute, can’t-think-straight out of breath?

Was getting there glorious? Painful? Fun?

In competitions, sprinters get there in ten seconds, though they recover fast. Kids do it a lot. Dogs seem to do it.

Did it happen to you because you were doing something fun? Playful?

Was it within the last week? Month? Year? Decade? Do you miss it?

Was it because you were out of shape and got winded climbing a flight of stairs? Do you never want to feel that way again?

I think playing or competing until you can’t do any more must rank with the most fun and rewarding activities you can do.
