When did running
first become a regular part of your life?I did nothing athletic until I was in my early 30’s. I had just had my second child and was desperate for alone time. Back in those days there were no real jogger strollers so running became my ‘me’ time. I discovered that I loved it and could be relatively competitive in my AG. I did my first marathon in 1994 and have been running ever since.
What was/is the biggest challenge in working out consistently?My biggest challenge now is getting going, putting the ‘to do” list aside and remembering how vital to my mental and physical and spiritual health running is. Ironically when I was a busy young mom I was better able to structure my time!
Road or the trail? These days I pretty much only run on trails. At 57 years old my body likes this better and it’s so amazing to spend hours in the woods. My next goal is to complete a 50 mile trail run before I turn 60 in three years.
What does healthy look like to you? Healthy looks like integration of body/mind/spirit
Along your own life journey, what’s one thing that you know for sure?One thing I know for sure is that LOVE and KINDNESS are powerful and life sustaining medicines
