Well hello Mr. Black Bear! Yes, there she was .. looking for a snack on the trail;)
Today I am coming to you from Canada and as you can see I am enjoying a morning run with my daughter. I really do practice what I preach when it comes to health and wellness. Many of us think we can’t but really though, we can. Simple modifications can help when needed and age has nothing to do with it. First off I want to say I am not a runner in a competitive sense. My pace is actually slow and because my family towers over me that means I’m usually in last place. Secondly, I feel fortunate to be able to run and to do so in such a beautiful place.
The best way to stay on track is to have an exercise partner. If you aren’t feeling motivated, maybe your partner is and will offer up some encouragement to get you going.
Today we a doing a few yoga poses to cool down. Simple, easy, whatever feels good..
Replenish with water (my favorite water bottle) and a little snack. Lucky for me my daughter stashed a KIND bar in her back pocket! Our favorite is made with dark chocolate, nuts, and sea salt. Nothing like a bit of dark chocolate in the morning!!
Obviously you should wear whatever you are comfortable in. If you are running it feels good to have fitted clothes that breathe. For walking, I’m usually wearing an oversized tee and capris or shorts. Finding the right shoe is tough. I’ve worn New Balance (generally good for a wider fit) and recently I’ve been wearing NIKE.
Life is a gift.
