We all know the type, people who are always looking for immediate gratification, short cuts, get rich quick schemes, miracle diets... seemingly anything that does not require hard work, discipline or patients. It's easy to avoid these kinds of people, just hang around with people who run, we thrive on no short cuts to success, just long tough miles!
Some interesting statistics on who enters running races: There are more men in the 40 - 44 age group than any other male age group, there are more women in the 30 -34 than any other female grouip. 61% of race entries are people over 35. Race entries are about even in numbers for men and women... but based on the growth in women's running, women will soon be ahead (20% of the women's field is under 30 where only 16% of the men's field is under 30.)
What does this all mean? Beats me but it's time to get out for a run!
Yours in running,
Randy Step, an admitted obsessed runner who has found there is never a short cut to get to the finish line!
