No description available, Foreword by Kathrine Switzer This book consists of transcripts of interviews with women ages to who run and compete in road races These women range from international class competitive runners to recreational athletes While each has a unique inspiring story to tell they are also collectively in a sense everywoman They are single married working retired from different races and ethnicities Some have children grandchildren or even great grandchildren They are survivors who have experienced loss illness or personal crises yet find in their running a new strength to cope with these losses What have these women found as runners that brings them back every year What can readers learn from their longevity in competition Perhaps the key lesson is that many of the limits people set are artificial and that with proper self care we not only can extend our lives but enhance our physical mental and emotional vitality To quote Betty Lundquist When I started running my son in law said to me Mom I can t promise that running will extend your life but I promise running will extend your active life That is so true While competitive success and the pride that comes with it is a motivating theme in all lives of the women we profile it s only one reason to run Dori Iten perhaps put it best The self confidence carries over to other areas of my life Several women used running to stop smoking Not wanting to gain weight was mentioned almost universally With obesity on the rise it is more important than ever to counter that trend with stories of people who successfully live healthy active lives and who as a result don t need expensive cosmetic surgery to look younger instead they have found a more natural fountain of youth Staying slender led to good health and an appearance many would claim years younger than their sedentary friends Abby Raven says A nice unexpected benefit of running is that I look younger than most women my age My husband tells me that I don t look so good by accident He knows how hard I work at it Abby adds It s more than vanity I m looking for balance I view exercise as part of a healthy life Without it there s something missing That feeling of something missing or a void is what all these women feel when they can t exercise Carol Lelli puts it this way I m addicted to exercise and that is a good thing What happens when these women are injured and can t run They bike swim and go to the gym to use the elliptical trainer or stair master or stationary bike One ran in deep water without a flotation device for minutes another in a cast that made her leg immobile used a hula hoop Running can be seductive Walk into any running store and you ll find race entry forms and running club announcements Buy a pair of shoes and you ve bought into a culture Enter one race and you ll want to enter more A new world opens up one that someone past with children in high school or college or on her own has more time to enjoy Surprisingly to most women interviewed new friendships form based on running Some have even found husbands and life partners in the running community And it is truly never too late to start One of the most accomplished athletes now in her s began running at while recovering from breast cancer For the millions of women who have already adopted the running life style the profiles will to be more than motivating They provide new training ideas new goals ideas for good nutrition and strategies for dealing with injuries, No description available, No description available
