Running in your 50s, 60s and even above is tremendously good for ageing bodies. If your last run was at age 10, or if life got in the way and you just couldn’t find the time, there are good reasons you should consider taking up running.
Have you ever tried running against a strong headwind? How about running on a cold and windy day, or a hot and humid day with nary a breeze to lift your spirits up? Save for the occasional indoor treadmill session, runners constantly have to deal with different environmental conditions.
When is the best time to go for a run? That question has been a topic of hot discussion among runners and fitness experts for decades. Some say early morning runs are the best, while others prefer to run in the afternoon or in the evening. So what’s the difference?
Becoming a guide runner for the visually impaired (VI) is one of the most challenging and gratifying things you can do as a runner. A guide runner is a volunteer who aids the visually impaired in running or jogging.

It’s a running activity and experience that is worth signing up for.
Simplicity. Freedom. Choice. If I were to sum up the sport of running, those are the words I would use. Nothing could be simpler than lacing up your running shoes and just going where your feet take you. You want to run in -30 degree weather? Knock yourself out. Run up a mountain? Go for it. Depending on what you want to do, there’s a type of run out there waiting for you.
