I run because my family told me,i was too old!Run the london marathon they said,impossible!But i did it,then injury struck.So now they said you'll have to give up.No no and thrice no, we are now managing some gentle gym work and waiting for a scan that will hopefully give me a clean bill of health.I will run forever.......

Yeah to that! I've got osteoporosis, but so what? I don't let a small thing like fractured bones slow me down - competing in Ironman triathlons I've seen blind people or people with only one leg finishing! In tri circles there's a very famous kid named Rudy Garcia who has no legs but is a fierce triathlon competitor - if he can do it, so can we able-bodied folks!

To enjoy the feeling of getting into the Zone after the first mile or so, the breathing sorts itself out, the heart rate steadies and there is no-one else there.
Even if you have a bad run you are still happy you made the effort to go out.
The feeling of setting a target, long or short term and achieving it. Having the confidence to say that you can, even if others wonder why you bother.

MartinH and Billyboy - do you guys ever go to Volksmarsch events? John & I often run one on a Sunday for a change in route if we're not doing a race anywhere
