You woke up this morning and said to yourself, “What am I going to do today?” Remembering your conversation about the half marathon, you said out loud, "Darn it! Why not?" At the gym you asked about the next scheduled race. There are lots of training options, some right here in your own gym.
You decide three days a week at the gym and two at home with a personal trainer sounds perfect. You’ll take the weekend off - after all, you are retired! You wink at your reflection in the mirror – “looking good!”
The workouts turned out to be fun. There were machines and bikes and even some classes. You have always loved a challenge, but whoa! Yesterday, one of the trainers told you to slow down. Even though you have always worked out, going too fast could cause you to strain something. OK, so you’ll cut back to just three days a week, and take a short run in at the end of each week day. You really want to do this.
Good for you!
You signed up for the 5K race, and you did it! Look - it says “Steve Johnson, 30 minutes 12 seconds.” Good for you! (Even though you were in the ‘over 60’ category, you feel pretty proud). How smart you were to keep physically fit all these years.

If you decided you have had enough with running and it’s time to do something else that helps others, turn to page 5.
