I was an exercise physiologist/trainer for 13 years. I have a passion for running & continue my quest to get faster in all races on low miles (20-30 miles per week). I coach other low mileage runners part time helping them get faster with smarter training. I really enjoy lifting weights, golf, the sun & am fantasy football expert winning thou$ands in national events. I also have passion for supplements/neutraceuticals and research behind various herbs for inflammation, antioxidants, bone health, immune health, heart health and exercise performance.
|Why do I run:
Improve race times on low miles. Because of a child hood lawn mower accident, my miles need to be limited. I am also motivated to look good/feel good/stay lean. Better health/longevity. I still have those these goals but at age 51 I am still competitive and enjoy racing. From age 40 to 50 my race times are darn close-only a 1-1.5% regression. Need to say the same at age 60.
|Why I started running:
Needed to get in CV shape for fitness career at the time to teach high intensity classes. Plus, peer pressure to do well in races. Once I entered a 5K and did well, I was hooked.
