Ah, running! It’s like a race between your heart and brain, with your legs caught in the middle, wondering why they signed up for this madness. But fear not, my friend, for running does come with some hilarious health benefits:
Instant Mood Enhancer: Running releases endorphins, those little critters that turn your frowns into laughter. So when life hands you lemons, put on your running shoes and chase them to show them who’s boss!
Enhanced Cardiovascular System: Your heart deserves a standing ovation for enduring the marathon that is life. By running, you give it a much-needed workout, making it as solid and resilient as a superhero. Now you can proudly call your heart the “Iron Man” of organs.
Stealth Mode: Running regularly can help you shed pounds and become a lean, mean running machine. And with all that stealthy agility, you can sneakily grab the last slice of pizza at any gathering. Move over, ninjas!
Punny Endurance: Running builds stamina, which means you’ll have the energy to keep up with your kids or outrun your friends when they realize you’ve forgotten your wallet at home. The punny part? You can say, “I’m always running a little behind!” Cue the groans.
Sweat-Induced Sparkles: Running makes you sweat; sweat is just your body’s way of saying, “I’m a fabulous glitter factory!” So, embrace the sparkle and shine like the glowing disco ball you were born to be.
Remember, my friend, that running isn’t just about physical health. It’s about laughter, ridiculousness, and the joy of embracing the absurdity of life. So put on those running shoes, hit the pavement, and let your inner comedian loose. Happy running, you magnificent, sweat-glistening unicorn!

Is aging a disease? My perspective is that aging is a disease that is eventually fatal! My goal is to try to prevent the fatal consequence as long I can and at the same time take care of my physical performance capacity.
The common perception of aging is that as you age, you simply cannot do the same things you did when you were younger; therefore, you are old. However, there are plenty of stories talking about how someone over the age of 80 just completed a marathon or some other astonishing sports feat. How is this even possible?

Hi, I’m 66 and I’ve been told that as we age, we can expect a rapid decline in physical attributes, especially those that determine performance in endurance sports. There are many questions we athletes typically have about this topic:
