The Longer Version. I'm Carol M Green and I began running at the tender age of 47, just prior to becoming a grandmother. I have always been involved in fitness programs of some kind or another, but running changed a lot of things.
Running broadened my horizons. I gained friends whom I would not have come to know without running. I refer to them as my running buddies. I began participating in fitness challenges and endurance activities from 5K's to sprint triathlons and half marathons. My favorite endurance challenge is a relay race where I share 180 miles of exhausting smelly misery with 11 of my running buddies.
Running improved my health. My blood pressure reading lowered. This is important because I have a family history of heart disease and stroke. My endurance improved to make other physical activities more enjoyable. My knees and ankles became stronger. (Yes, they did!)
Running improved my writing. I have always been a writer. Writing is a hobby, a long term goal and a creative outlet for me. I like to share things I have learned to hopefully teach others. I have discovered so much value in running that I want to encourage others to lace up and run. I wrote a book of valuable life lessons illustrated through running stories. I share things I have learned and encouragements here at Running Granny Green.
I am a wife, mother, grandmother and I want to be able to enjoy those relationships for many years to come. Running is helping me accomplish that goal.
