Last night in our running group, as we trudged along in the snow, we were talking about how we all had to keep running so we could "beat our age". For example, if you are 45 you would be able to run a 10K in 44 minutes or less.
Any fellow PTers able to "beat their age"?

I am not a fast runner--even in HS, I only ran about an 8 minute mile. Now, at 41, I run about a 10 minute mile. So no, I don't and I also don't care. What matters to me is that I'm doing it.

I am also a very slow runner. I recently started running again and am running 11+ min per mile. Like Zia said- Iím doing it.

So true, we are not very fast either but we always say, "At least we're not on the couch".

Yep! I always say I'm lapping everyone on the couch.
