You can turn into a runner at any age! I’ve heard individuals say that they want to be begun running when they were more youthful, yet it was past the point where it is possible to begin now. That is so not genuine! Running gives you such an incredible and sound way of life – regardless of when you begin!
Regardless of what age you begin running, the vital thing is to get a physical before you start running. You need to ensure that you are healthy. In the event that you have any wellbeing conditions that you know about – let your specialist know of your aims. He will help you begin effectively and let you know of anything you ought to be watchful for with respect to your condition.
If you think that most runners started when they were younger, talk to several runners. Some may have been running since school and some may have just taken up the sport. There are some runners that have been running since they were young. They were on their track teams in high school and college. Sometimes that’s a good thing – and sometimes it’s not.
Many runners that were pushed during their younger years on their track and cross country teams may get burned out. The last thing these runners want to do is run again. They are missing out on the run of running – and I always hate to see that happen. Sometimes these runners get back to running after a few years break.
There are runners that start later in their lives. Personally, I started in my 20’s. But, you hear stories about runners that didn’t start running until they were in their 50, 60’s and even older. They are out there doing marathons in their 80’s. I love to hear these stories! I plan on running marathons in my older years, also.
Runners are out there running today that were never considered athletes when they were younger. I was one of these. I was never athletic. My junior high phys ed teacher pretty much gave up on me. However, I do consider myself an athlete now. And, you can be one, too! In my opinion, if you are out there running and staying in shape – you’re an athlete.
