Another benefit of exercise:
Thanks for sharing. It's a win-win for all. I think that's one reason I love races--you get to work out and you get to help a good cause.
That's great. Do you do long distance races?
I have. I guess it depends on what you consider long. I've done one marathon and a number of 10 milers and halfs. I haven't done shorter distances because it doesn't seem worthwhile to wake up early to get there and do something shorter. Are you a runner?
Awesome! Good luck on it. Let us know how it goes.
I did an 8K recently. It was my first race. I would like to do more, but a lot of them don't work with our family schedule.
Do you have children at home? It is hard to get in training when you're taking care of a whole family. It's worth it, though, if only for setting an example about how important being healthy is. Congrats on the 8k! That's awesome--I think that's the optimal distance. It's enough that it's challenging but not so much that it takes over your entire life, nor wearing on the joints.
