Every Wednesday, the Deb from Deb Runs will be providing a word about which to blog. Kind of like a nice little blog prompt. Posts can be fitness or health related, but don’t have to be, so really anyone can play along. Just be sure to link up with InLinkz on Deb’s main post, and share the love by reading and commenting on other’s participant’s posts.
This week’s Word is AGELESS
I love this word!!
That’s my goal …to be “ageless.”
And running makes me feel “ageless.”
It’s running that bonds us runners, not age!! Many of my running friends are younger and some are older. It doesn’t seem to matter how old we are.
Sometimes, younger runners beat me. Other times, I beat them.
Sometimes, older runners beat me. Other times, I beat them.
In other words,, I do not want not let my age define me and I want to be able to do anything I want (despite my advanced age.)
I never want to say “I can’t do that. I’m too old.”
In fact, I am much more active now than I was in my 20s and 30s.
I am healthy and I certainly don’t feel my age. Yes, I am 62!! But I don’t feel 62.
I feel like I can run any distance that I choose from 5ks to even marathons.(I’m not saying I want to run a marathon but just that it’s not an age thing.)
And I can even get PRs.
Last year I PRed for 5k, 10k and 10 miles. This year, for 4 mile, 5 mile, 15k and Half marathon. I still feel that I can get better.
Wouldn’t it be great to live the quote below?
Happy Running! Does your age define? If so, how?
