I run to control my weight. I run for myself. I run for charity to raise money for spina bifida. I run to get in shape. I run to listen to music and be by myself. I run for balance in my life. I run to be healthy. I run with my sister. I run to take care of me. And right now when I am injured and can’t run, I look forward to running soon!
I run because it’s the best stress-buster that I know of. In addition, it keeps my weight under control and hopefully helps with my osteoporosis. As long as these 61 year old joints allow, I will continue to run!
I started running to lose weight. I continued running because being able to do so makes me feel strong and healthy. And sane. It’s my therapy time. After a good run I feel calm, relaxed, able to handle life. I can’t imagine my life without running.
Oh yeah, and my legs. Running makes them look awesome.
Signed up for a MADD Walk and for a couple of months it’s inspired me to get more fit…hope the walking trail for the Walk has drained by this weekend…a deluge termed a “200 year rain” swamped the park this past week…my results in a recent Doughnut Dash were reportedly 0 but I casually participated, walked 2k, and ate one donut…I’m planning my costume for next year’s Dash…The new hip keeps me from running…never ran, always walked…At 62 my bmi even on the Mayo clinic site is “overweight” as a female, though not as a male.
I run because even on the cloudiest days running brings joy, smiles and laughter! Who knew that this years Boulder 9k+ would still bring all those things , despite the snow, rain and mud. Running this years event with the ladies pictured, made it so memorable! Can’t wait to do it for my 4th straight year in 2015!!
Here is another great picture from the slush and mud!
I run because it’s a challenge, it makes me feel strong, and my dog is a great running partner! Can’t wait for our annual Thanksgiving Turkey Trot with my family!
I run to stay fit and healthy. Running gives me time to get out of my head and connect with my body. It also gives me a chance to see my neighborhood throught out the yeat. I run because it makes me feel alive.
I run for health happiness and positive state of mind. Running does for me something nothing else can . It is my foundation for everything and without it I feel weak and totally imbalanced. I hope I never stop 🙂
Oh, I don’t run, but I walk – and I walk long! I am 78 years old, began endurance walking with a Full Marathon at age 65. I have since done 8 full Marathons and over 60 Halfs.
I’m afraid to quit. What would happen to my good health and healthy mind if I quit?
So, I’m always a “back of the pack” girl, but I finish and I almost always have a smile on my face, and I am still walking the next day!
If the pictures happens to show up, that is me in the yellow shirt.
Congrats to you Nancy….you are awesome. I run but I also walk and as I age…I will never stop, I’m out there every day. Keep it up, I may see you at a marathon or two one day.
You are awesome my friend. Im the oldest girl in my running group. I qualified for Boston and I’m Running it in April!!! I hope that I can run until the day I die. I love it.
I run for sanity — or at least, some semblance of sanity! And after finishing 7 marathons (with an 8th planned for December), I feel like I can tackle just about anything that comes my way. 🙂
