Still waiting for permission to be the example of great health and wellness?

Perhaps we are simply following in the footsteps of our elders’ poor wellness habits.
And without actually saying the words, our actions are saying, yes, I am following the same path that will eventually make me wish I had taken care of myself.
The aging public’s general ignorance towards running is stunning.
We often hear non-runners talking about how smart they are for not running, citing how it saves them from typical runner’s injuries.

The folks not exercising at all, even less.
He said, “I worry about you. You should wear a colored shirt or reflective vest when you run. It’s hard for drivers to see you in a white shirt.”
