I glanced over at my pal, D. She was struggling her way through class with two cracked ribs. That gave me a reality check. If she can do it, surely I can!
The instructor said to pick up our medicine balls. D. and I had ours, so we sat tight.
A very buff woman, new to the class and hanging out in the corner, walked slowly forward on crutches to get a ball.
D. and I exchanged a look: Wow. She's on crutches and here she is, working out.
And then we noticed. Our eyes widened at the sight. The woman is on crutches because she only has one leg.
