After 3 hip surgeries in my mid thirties, I gained weight and got pretty lazy. Once COVID hit and most of my outlets for fun were shutdown, I realized that I missed working out and was not happy with my health. Like many of you, a lot changed during ...

I am plagued by back and knee issues - but this is not new to my 60s. And when you look at the labels provided they are mostly for people much younger. We need a platform to talk about our running and other activities and staying engaged and relevant...
