This is great info, thanks for sharing. I agree that finding a fitness buddy is the best way to stay motivated and have a lot more fun. When my husband and I are playing tennis, racquetball, etc. it doesn't feel like "exercise". We have a blast! I would love to try a 5k but just can't seem to get into the whole running thing. I do great for awhile then go back to walking because everything seems to start hurting!

Everyone knows that some people don't like exercising because they get bored, but some of the best exercises can be a lot of fun, especially if you bring a friend!
-My wife and I started taking cycling classes together, and as someone who has always hated cardio, I was shocked by how much fun I had.
-Hiking is a great workout, and not many other exercises have rewards like the views you'll find in parks, woods, and mountains!
-Charity 5Ks will help you feel great physically and mentally! If there is a cause you care about, there's almost sure to be a related 5K in your area. My wife is a special ed teacher, and there are fundraiser 5Ks for related charities in our area probably once a month. It's a great way to help your community, while also giving you an event to train for to keep you motivated!
-Social sports leagues have gotten extremely popular in the last 5 years, and they're a great way to get exercise and make new friends in the process! You're never too old for kickball! (My personal favorite, but there are leagues for almost any sport you can think of, for all levels of competitors!)
