This week I was interviewed by Charlotte from The Mummy Toolbox and we discussed the question of Age and Running – it was for her story “Never Too Old to Run” . I would love you to read her article in which she introduces her Dad who started running at 56 and also my thoughts and experience over the last 8 years when I first started to run.
Are we too old to run or do anything for that matter?
Running might not be your thing, but the point is that we shouldn’t let ourselves be limited because of our age. If you are fit and healthy then GO FOR IT I say.
I knew a lady once who, at the wonderful age of 78, skydived with her grandson. We see many examples on social media and in the news of people who are on paper ‘quite senior’ doing wonderful things with their life.Don't be limited by your age. It is just a number so GO FOR IT and achieve your dream!Click To Tweet
If you had told me when I was 40 that I would be running a 42.2km marathon at age 55 , I would have laughed at you! However, running the marathon was a turning point for me in my life!
It taught me that I could do ANYTHING I put my mind to ACHIEVING and it also taught me that age is no barrier and midlife is a wonderful phase of life!
As I said, it doesn’t have to be running. Wanting to lead a fit and healthy lifestyle is a great goal, however, we all have different dreams. We also have the capacity to making them a reality.
My recent guest post ‘ Remove ‘But’ From Your Vocabulary and Achieve Your Dream’ discusses how we need to face our fears and replace ‘BUT’ with ‘WHEN & HOW’.
SO WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR!Don't die thinking 'I wish I had' but rather 'I'm glad I tried'Click To Tweet
