I am not lost, I am exploring

I reached my goal of completing 4 HMs in 2014! Wow, did that look daunting before I ran my first one in March! Now I plan to repeat in 2015!

Running is a passion for me now. I began road running, at age 52, in March of 2013, after walking for 2 years. I say I am running from Dementia, since I am leading a healthier lifestyle to prevent the onset of Alz. Rigorous activity is a deterrent to the onset of dementia. I care for my mother with Alzheimer's, who inspires me every day. ...

All seasons are running seasons. I grew up in PA and did cross country winter track and spring track. Winter track was conducted on the plowed high school parking lot. You just had to be on the lookout for ice patches. I prefer running in 32 F.

Thanks for commenting on my Tomoka Triathlon. Yes, we've both been bitten by the 'race bug' LOL. I'm doing well on the triathlons as far as spreading the exercise between 3 events and being less inclined to running injuries. I have 3 more tris scheduled for this season.

That's really sweet! I'm trying to add walking to my relationship with my Mom. She's not interested in running. We both got nordic poles for Christmas! She lives far away though. Glad you've got healthy habits down pat and you're passing them down to your kiddos!

I've actually already started Chicago Marathon training. I signed up for coached training from RunnersConnect. I'm very impressed with it so far. My local running store is also supposed to be starting a marathon training program. As soon as they announce, I'll sign up for that also. I'm hoping the two plans do not conflict too much, but I'll work it out. The running store will have group runs, probably on Saturdays, and perhaps one group run mid-week.
Bossdear is already preparing to be a running widow for the next few months.
