Benefits of Increased Physical Endurance for LongevityWhy do we stop doing things we love as we age? Do they become too difficult? Do they require more energy than we feel we can expend? Is it simply a mind set?
What if I said you don't have to stop doing what you love - at least not as soon as you might think? What if those things did not have to become too difficult and you could have enough energy to continue. What if it isn't just a mind set?
I'm not pitching a miracle diet or pill. What I am suggesting is that if you do something difficult on purpose, such as running regularly, you can enjoy life a little longer? Why is this important to me? I intend to be an octogenarian. I come from a long line of octogenarians. It's in my genes. I also have stroke, Type II Diabetes, and heart disease as hereditary risk factors. The way I see it, if I am going to be eighty-something, or even ninety-something I would like to keep my faculties as long as I can. And so ... I run.
What better motivation than to know you are doing something that may prolong your life and make it more enjoyable along the way? I'm a granny and its the best job I've ever had! I want to enjoy it for many years to come! And so ... I run.
