Hi. I am 49 years old and trying to get back to a healthy version of me. I've had a few setbacks over the last few years but no excuses. I'm always trying to find people to start running with me, but I guess I'm on my own. So after working back up to a decent time AND being able to breathe on the elliptical, I decided (after seeing an old friend do her first 5k)that I'll start getting on the road again. My main reason for lacing up the sneakers is it always helps me feel better. It's mostly for the mental and emotional goodness I get, but if I get benefits in the physical areas, I'm not going to complain. Here's to finding the old me or maybe a new me.
