Eating Healthy

 You don't need a lecture on what you can or can't eat. Truth is, you can eat almost anything. However, you have to be smart about it. Moderation is the key. Futhermore,we all know that lean cut meats are best. Less sugar is better for our body. Fruits and vegetables are essential. Come on, you know this! Remember, running after fifty is about staying healthy and having fun.You don't need to make drastic changes in your diet. If you eat poorly, make corrections now. Do it gradually. Seek help if needed.
Go On,Treat Yourself !

Your First Road Race

   Signing up for your first race can be exciting or intimidating. Road racing should be just as much fun as your daily runs. Here's how to shake the (should I sign up jitters). First of all, remember that you are a runner now.That's half the battle. Next, choose a race in your area. Do you want to run fast or easy pace it? The short runs (5k) are the fastest. The (10k and above) allow for easy pacing. Decide which one is for you, sign up and go get your packet. Once you are there, I assure you that the jitters will pass. Go have fun . Enjoy the crowd. Enjoy the activities. Set a goal for yourself to complete the race. See you there!

Running On The Go

  Have you ever driven to a place where the scenery was simply beautiful. Perhaps you were on a bussiness trip or just visiting a friend. Some places are put on earth for runners to enjoy. Try to take advantage of those
opportunities. Running the same course everyday can become dull. Try to carry running gear in your car. Look for a place to change and go for it. If that's not possible, take a road trip
on your day off.  A change in scenery is always refreshing. Now Enjoy!

Staying Hydrated

 Running should be fun. Do not complicate matters by making it too technical. Some things we know to be true.You need water, so drink. Start the day with a liter of water. You should have it finished by the end of  the day. Remember, milk and juices count too. A Sports drink should be used after long, intense runs. There are many to choose from.The goal is to keep it simple. Don't worry yourself with high tech drinks and formulas. Worry about your wallet. Now Guzzle!
