Drastic way to avoid a run

Drastic way to avoid a run

So I really REALLY didn't want to go out running tonight. (I did though).

But before I went out I went into the kitchen and took a pre-run puff of my inhaler without bothering to put the kitchen light on. This earphone bud was inside it for some reason and I inhaled it very close to the back of my throat and scarily close to the point of no return. Stopping yourself breathing altogether would be an extreme option to get out of going out ...
