Confessions of an Ultra Runner

Jazz BlogOkay – I used to run like crazy, for years, 50k’s (31 miles) 50 milers and marathons (26.2 miles) but since I became the owner of my own business and achieved the rank of Grammy, running has taken a back seat. I struggled with allowing myself to “run short” less than a 4 hour outing was sorta like, why bother? As you might expect I became, soft in the middle. So, my confession is this; after over 3o years I started to Jazzercise again, I’m back at it. My daughter, Karen, and I go as many mornings as we can. The grandkids have Miss Nina there to watch over them while we “Jazz” and it is amazing fun for all. We’ve been having this kind of sweaty fun since last November and those silly dance moves really helped whip me back into shape, along with stand up paddling. The point of this blog post is to encourage people like myself to keep moving as you go through life and don’t get stuck on what you used to be able to do giving yourself permission to do less than before. Oh, and I haven’t seen a single side pony tail or any leg warmers 🙂
