Running Within Quote!

The bottom line on aging and running performance is this: we do not know our limits. The real barrier seems to be the mind, not the body. According to most experts, our true life span is 100-plus years, and whether we make it has much to do with our attitudes, beliefs, and lifestyles. Our bodies are simply waiting for our minds to give them permission to go beyond what most of us think is the finish line.Running Within

This is my favorite quote because of the comment on, "our true life span is 100-plus years".
Based on another book I read I like to tell people that when I turn 100 I will ride 100 miles!

And of course our attitudes, beliefs, and lifestyles has a lot to do with if we get there or not.

I would like to thank TriFrog for recommending this read!

I think it'll be easier to ride 100 than run 100 but who knows that could be a thought.

I'm with QC. Or maybe run 75 when you're 75?

Day one with the stability ball complete. My abs aren't sore or anything and I haven't fallen yet (despite coworkers coming in and kicking the ball while I am seated :\)

Hi all, nice, uplifting post papa! I just posted about a couple of injuries I'm dealing with - feels like I'm falling apart sometimes. If it's all in my mind, I need to figure out how to use it or I won't be running when I'm 50 ;-)
