Yo run gang,
So, how long will we continue to be runners? I always say, until they throw the dirt on! As we age our pace and goals will change but the psychological and physical benefits of our running won’t. Yes we may be sidelined, nothing in life is a given but until or “if” that happens, we can continue to focus on the next day’s run … and the goal for our next race, yes, at any age! Seeing Jim Forshee battle with Dick Sarns in the 80 to 84 age group at the Bighouse Bigheart 5K, not to mention seeing finishers in the 85 -89 and 90-94 year age groups proves my point!
I do have a habit of repeating the important stuff … It’s Free Press Marathon & Half Marathon this weekend in Detroit, a motivational and exciting time for the sport of running in Michigan. Even if you are not running, make the pilgrimage to the city, check out the race expo on Friday and Saturday (Visit the Running Fit booth!), and cheer on the Runner’s Sunday morning. You will find it to be a motivational, inspirational jolt for the future of your running life. Lastly, make sure you get in a run while you’re in the “D”!
Run till the end,
Randy Step, an obsessed runner … headed to the “D”!
