Make No Mistake That Running Is Truly A Discipline.
Getting out the door is not always an easy task. But we runners are an addictive breed that thrive off the benefits and the positives that become even more apparent as we age.
The purpose of this website The Senior Runner is to share experiences which will range from the actual runs to health, diet, and life style.
I do not know many senior runners who do not excel in most areas in their lives. It is the whole ball of wax deal. If you have the discipline to run everyday, there is a cross over into other sects of your life.
What will be opened up in a forum/blog concept will be comparisons between Morning, Afternoon, to Evening running and also long distance versus middle distance to a shorter training program. Racing versus non competitive running, to running in the tracks versus running on the road. These are just a few areas to discuss as i am getting your juices flowing.
You by no means have to be a senior runner to enjoy this site. There is a need to vent as seniors to the specific enjoyments and problems us seniors have. Should we weight train and do push ups? or only run? How much is enough or too little in regards to time or mileage? I have not missed a day in over three years and often run twice a day. So is that good? Well it works for me with my mental stress of running a large company.
So enjoy and contribute and hope to get to know many Lady and Gent runners around the world and share my senior experiences.
