I have a couple of friends close to my age, my age, older even (I am 46) that are marathon runners. Seriously, they run for 26 miles straight. The one guy is doing a 100 mile weekend. 100 miles. Running. Same guy that twisted his ankle 2 miles into his most recent marathon and still finished! It is so AWESOME. Me, I can run about 26 seconds straight. I also know a lot of people training to run 5Ks. Which I also think is awesome. So to you runners out there: I admire your coolness! I admire your mental strength to run for hours. I admire your sense of self that says, "I will take this time every day to run." Run! I applaud you all!
