Nice to meet you, and glad to hear you run in nature's beauty. Yes, God's creation...it's more fun to be out in it, to me, than to be inside on a treadmill. I have been a runner for 4 years now, and am still astounded at how the body adapts and becomes stronger because of it, even after 50! I never knew! Do you sign up for races? I've worked up to half marathons, which are my favorite. I don't want to put in the time I would need to prepare for a full marathon. I'm not fast, running 9 1/2 minute miles on average, but I enjoy running. Not so much the training, but the after-soreness, and all the daily perks, like not running out of breath anymore, and being able to sing better, longer notes, in church!I am a runner over 50, been running off and on for 40 years. I can still go the distance, just not as fast as in my younger days but I enjoy running. I belong to a running club of great people who encourage each other. I live in a beautiful area so most runs are quite scenic, the beauty of the earth glorifies God. I am thankful for the beautiful creation that he has given us.
