Why did they stop running??????
That's the question that I've asked myself several times about some of my old training partners.
I know that injuries are the cause for some of them but for others it's like they just stopped!
For the life of me I can't imagine not running. I know that when I'm 97, I'll probably have to stop but not until then.
I've talked to several people that have just stopped running for no apparent reason other than they stopped!
I know that I'm not running the same pace that I once did or there are no PRs in my near future, but I keep going.
For me it's like a bird not flying! How odd would that be to see a bird walking instead of flying????
I know a lot of you are still in the prime of your running career and can't imagine not running but some day it may happen. So cherish the moments that you're out there....
Stay thirsty my friends....
