Dear Annabella,

I enjoyed your article a great deal. I’m not a jogger, but I work out at the Y & enjoy walking, with or without our dogs (they present their own challenges). One of the many things the Y has taught me is that I never look at a normal weight person & think that they are lucky because of their metabolism. I have seen too many normal weight people bust their ass (literally) working out 🏋️‍♀️ to think it’s just luck. Just because I’m fat doesn’t mean that I am out of shape, nor do I like to be judged, so I extend the same curtesy to others. On the other hand, let those who underestimate me do so at their own peril. 😉
