In recent email converstaion with my high school friends, we were discussing our life after 40. I was giving my way of keep my self healthy. Here is my email:
Yes, we are getting older, and need to keep thinking about next 20-40 years. We do live a busy life. With family, kids and job things get out of control. This is what i feel : if I do not take care of myself now, I may not live to see my kids grow.
I picked up running as part of keeping myself fit and healthy. I start to blog to help people of all ages. You can visit http://www.silwal.com . I am trying to keep things simple.
Since I started running in Oct 2007, I became a marathoner!!! I finished 2 full marathons (26.2 miles or 42 km). Over the years, I ran many 5ks, 10ks and 2 half marathon. I feel strong, fit and healthy. I will be running 3 more in fall 2009 and winter 2010. I may be coming to city near you. My next marathon is Toronto, Canada in Sept 2009. I am planning to run Chicago in Oct 2010. One day, I will run Kathmandu marathon (yes, there is such a thing)!!!
Running has given me a new sense/focus in my life. Some races, it is also becoming a family event. My wife, my older daughter and I run races together.
If you ever need to start running, or want to take to next level, email or post your questions on my blog. I will more than happy to help.
Good luck!! Keep on moving…
