If I can finish a 5k with asthma, you can finish a 5k with wine!

Years ago, one of the goals that I had for my old body was to tackle a 5k.  I've got asthma and hips that like to remind me that I'm old but I trained, got my race bib, and somehow managed to get across the finish line without collapsing.  I almost cried at that moment...but crying makes my asthma go nuts too so I tried to keep all the emotions in check when I finally saw my time and the word "FINISH" on the ground.
