I ran a quite a bit after college, got hurt when my youngest turned 2, took a 20 yr break, and my youngest got me running again in 2004.
My goals are:
1) Still running at 65 - Made it!
2) Still running at 70 - I am nursing a sore knee so this is starting to feel that this will be a stretch.
|Why do I run:
Running feels good. I like to build up a sweat and it is "my time" to listen podcasts.
|Why I started running:
I started playing club rugby and, since I only weighed 140 lb, decided I better be able to out run the big guys.
Over time, running became more fun than the rugby!
When my younger daughter was 2, it was too much and I stopped. 20 years later, the same younger daughter asked me if I would run a race with her. She had never run a race.
We are still running. I ran 1 marathon (My wife won't let me run any more.) and she has run 2, as of Jan, 2016.
