|My Race Medals - I finally hung them up!|
Becoming a Runner
Before the previous ten years, I ran with my teenage friends and later I ran with my daughter in a baby jogger. Then I took a running break for 13 years.
When I turned 38, one hot August afternoon I put on my tennis shoes, cotton t-shirt and denim shorts and went for a run. Since then, I've kept it up for 10 years.
Training Plan for Beginning Runners
I started with a free online Couch to 5K training plan. Running was hard, but I wanted to be more fit before I turned 40 so I kept at it.
3 Advantages of Running
- The Places, People and Wild Animals I See When I Run
- The Feeling of Accomplishment After a Run
- Eating more cookies!
I started running for a strong and healthy body and that's part of the reason I like to run now, but if I didn't like running, I'd pick another sport to focus on like riding my bike. Most of all, I keep running because it's fun!
Why do you run? Do you keep running for the same reasons that you started running?
