What an incredible day for me today! This morning, I stopped by my parents before heading to the gym but instead of running on the treadmill, my stepdad suggested we all run on the street. All meaning myself, my stepdad, and my mom. All I can say is wow. My parents kicked major butt today. First off, they are both in spectacular shape for their ages. My stepdad is 58 and has strength trained and run most of his life. My mom is 52 and works out almost daily.
We ran about 2 miles and I couldn’t believe how well we all did. I think I was more out of breath than my mom! This proves to me that it is never too late to exercise and if you continue you to do it, you can turn back the clock. Neither of my parents look their age.
They both definitely inspire me to keep fitness as a part of my life and to meet my fitness goals. Exercise is definitely more fun when it includes loved ones.
