I have a genetic condition where I have very few sweat glands. Although others may know what sweat dripping down their face feels like, I have never experienced that in my life.
So, "working up a sweat" is almost impossible for me. Although this means I don't have to worry as much as others about being offensive to others after a work-out, it does have other problems. Sweat is the way the body usually employs to cool off. The other way is by bringing blood to the surface of the skin, which is what my body usually does. So, oftentimes people think I am either on the verge of dying from a work out because I am so red, or if I am outside, people think I am sunburned.
Needless to say, summer is miserable for me.
