I began running in 2013 after realizing I needed to improve my health and I wasn't getting any younger. Inspired by my husband and daughter, I saw that running is a great way to exercise. It's great for your cardiovascular system and for your overall health. Running is a great sport that you can do anytime and anywhere. Prior to this time I had never been a very active person, so starting to run at this time in my life took a lot of courage. I now run several times a week and enjoy participating in running events, which is proof that you can start running at any age. Since I began running, my health has greatly improved. It's a great way to get in shape and to meet people. I also enjoy volunteering when I'm not running. Since I have started running, Running Etc. has always been helpful with any questions I've had regarding running shoes and apparel and encouraged me along the way.
