Re: “How to Run

What a lovely story, Peri! Thank you for sharing this with us. I remember constantly wishing that I had more things to talk to my dad about that would help me feel closer to him when he was at the end of his life, struggling through his cancer treatments.

Re: “How to Run

Such a loving tribute to your father. You were able to give him a connection and sense of purpose at the end of his life, and he gave you his passion. Thanks for sharing, and do, keep running!

Re: “How to Run

Too much running (when do you know enough is enough) leads to old people slowly walking on hobbled knees and other irreversible infirmaries which are the result of repeated skeletal pounding in their youth. Similarly football players (if they don't have concussive brain syndrome) in their later years find life miserable with knee, shoulder, and other skeletal injuries. Get the same benefits through participating in golf, walking, swimming and other sports that improve your later years - not destroy your enjoyment of them. Your ability to enjoy life as an adult / senior is connected to the choices you make along the path - what you participate in, what you dissipate with, what you eat, etc. It takes awareness early in life - something most folks don't develop until it is too late.
