Yesterday my mom decided she wanted to learn how to wake board - she turns 70 this year. She got up on her first try and had a blast. She is just so full of energy - I LOVE IT!! I want to be just like her.
One of the reasons exercise is so important to me is so that I can have energy and be able to play with my kids even when they are full grown. I love that my kids see me workout and that they come to my races and that they know how important health is to me. I hope I can pass that on to them.
Yesterday I ran 16 miles and it felt good. Maybe it was the fact that I'm getting back in shape or maybe it was the fact that I used my usual GU nutrition or maybe it was just a good run. But I'll take it. Today I did a nice easy 4.5 miles to relax my legs. Now they aren't sore at all.
