Part of a series of runner profiles we’ll be featuring throughout the summer
Running makes us feel good. It’s a gift. If you run without injuries, now that’s a bonus!
Throughout my life running has been enjoyable. Whether on the beach, a trail, a rock jetty, or on the road. Alone is fine, as well as in a group. Running is fun.
Most runners strive towards a 5K, 10K, half marathon, full marathon, 50K, Ultra. Crazy, more, more, more. Slow down, remember, running is supposed to make you feel good. It’s a gift; don’t overtrain and enjoy the ride.
My goal now after running for quite a long time is to help people slow down after they achieve a particular goal with running.
On most Sunday mornings I lead a running group on the beach. Yes, it is a little harder to run in sand, but you see, that’s the point. You have to slow down to do it.
For the past 7 years I’ve done this because I enjoy it, free of charge.
