I work for a furniture making company. We make RTA (ready to assemble) furniture. I am also a retired head varsity soccer coach at the local high school. I have three grown children and 6 grandchildren.
|Why do I run:
Running is now an obsession with me. I run 5 days per week rain, snow, whatever. I know the rest of you do that too.
|Why I started running:
I started running 1/1/2004 when I was 50. I weighed 295. I'm at 230 now. I have not run a marathon yet. I run slowly, but have gone as many as 20 miles in training. I have been fighting injuries for the last two years.
I'm now 67 and can't run far any more. I've gained back 20 of my lost pounds. I still run about 25 miles per week. But my knees are bad and need to be replaced.
