I’m an old, new runner who took up rnuinng again when I was 59 to get in better aerobic shape. Mine was a “golf-to-5K” beginning that progressed to “Why don’t I run a 10K?” (my first in 25 years) to “Let’s break 60 min in the 10K” and then “Ed, why don’t you run a mini-marathon?” to finally “Let’s run a full marathon!” at age 62. Along the way, I learned about wicking rnuinng clothes and socks, motion-control rnuinng shoes, GymBoss interval timers, heart rate monitors, CW-X and Superfeet insoles in addition to calorie-counting the carbohydrates, proteins and fats in the food I eat. And then a friend lent me his Garmin, and “Wow, is this ever neat! I gotta have one!” This led to heart-rate monitoring and knowing my rnuinng pace more accurately as I progressed to improving my marathon PR by rnuinng negative splits. I also read magazines like Runners World and books like “Once A Runner”, and surfed the web for tips on rnuinng marathons. I absorbed the teachings of Jeff Galloway and John “The Penguin” Bingham like a sponge. It was a natural progression to want to get better and to incorporate the latest in rnuinng gear and advice.
